Outline Grading Criteria
Go to the student CD, chapter 6, activities and choose 8D. This is a good review of enzymes and how they function. Use it to begin or review when you have finished. Either way it is good to see a visual of what you are reading about.
6. All enzymes are catalysts, but not all catalysts are enzymes. Why? What is the difference between a catalyst and an enzyme?
7. Are enzymes specific in their action? Explain why or why not.
11. How does the changing of pH affect the rate of an enzyme-controlled chemical reaction? Explain in terms of the tertiary structure of an enzyme and the role of the tertiary structure in enzyme function.
To review the following concepts, use the student CD, activity 8A. Don’t forget there are multiple screens for some of the activities.
13. What is energy?
14. Define the following and give examples:
a. Kinetic energy
b. Potential energy
15. What is the relationship between kinetic energy and potential energy?
16. Define the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics.
Activity 8B refers to ATP and ADP and how they are related to each other. On my computer I don’t get a picture associated with the text for the first screen of the activity, but I do get a visual for the second screen that is pretty good.
ADP + P
Label the arrow that represents an endergonic reation. Label the arrow that represents an exergonic reaction. Activity 8C reviews the difference between exergonic and endergonic reactions (there are several screens to proceed through, but this is a good exercise).
