    Overview: Life at the Edge The plasma membrane separates the living cell from its nonliving surroundings. This thin barrier, 8 nm thick, controls traffic into and out of the cell. Like all biological membranes, the plasma membrane is selectively permeable, allowing some substances to cross more easily than others. Concept 7.1 Cellular membranes are fluid mosaics of lipids and proteins The main macromolecules in membranes are lipids and proteins, but carbohydrates are also important. The…

    AP Bio Essay #1 To address this problem created by the lab tech, I would set up an experiment like the one we did in AP biology to identify the molarity of the unknown sucrose solutions. First I would pour an equal volume of each solution into beakers labeled A, B, C, and D. I would also have a beaker of the same amount of distilled water to serve as a control for the experiment. Then I would obtain several baby carrots, 4 per beaker. I would mass the groups of 4 potatoes before placing them…

    Begin your study of biology this year by reading Chapter 1. It will serve as a reminder about biological concepts that you may have learned in an earlier course and give you an overview of what you will study this year. As you read each chapter, take note of the headings for each section, as these will clue you in to the big idea you should grasp from reading that section. One good strategy is actually to read through the review at the end of the chapter before diving into the material. Type the information…

    Reflection: SS Chapters 6 & 7 I believe that there is much that we take for granted in our world today. One of these things we take for granted in the instant “treatment” for plants. We do so without even a second thought or consideration and continue to let it happen year after year. We also take for granted our everyday dependencies that stem from nature. I then question what it would take for us to realize our dependency on nature and to respect it as such. On page 73 of the reading, it discusses…

Explanation The reaction was observed after 30 minutes because the reaction rate eventually slows down and the enzyme reaches its maximum potential. Since the enzyme is using the substrate so quickly, the substrates concentration depletes. That means the rate will slow down. Our graph shows that after about 40 minutes, the enzyme…
