  1. alpha, beta and gamma decay
    • alpha (helium nucleus released, 4, 2)
    • beta (electron released, 0, -1)
    • gamma (high energy photon, 0,0)
  2. hydrostatic pressure
    • pressure fluid exerts on the walls of its container
    • ex. force of blood on the blood vessels
  3. osmotic pressure
    • pressure needed to prevent the flow of fluid across semipermeable membrane via osmosis
    • oncotic pressure: exerted by proteins like albumin
  4. net filtration pressure
    difference between net hydrostatic pressure and osmotic pressure
  5. at the arterial end of the capillary, what direction is the net flow of fluid?
    positive net filtration pressure, movement of fluid from capillary (blood) to interstitial space because capillary hydrostatic pressure is greater than blood colloid osmotic pressure
  6. at the venule end of the capillary, what direction is the net flow of fluid?
    • into the blood, because of greater oncotic pressure than hydrostatic pressure of capillary
    • negative net filtration
  7. is blood pressure greater in the systemic or pulmonary circulation?
    • greater in the systemic circulation b/c its length is greater than pulmonary, hence greater resistance R=pL/A, greater blood pressure
    • in addition, left ventricle which feeds the systemic circulation P=F/A has greater force than right ventricle (pulmonary circulation)
  8. systemic circulation
    carries oxygen rich blood from the left atrium of the heart (right side) to tissues and returns oxygen poor blood to the right atrium via the superior and inferior venae cavae
  9. pulmonary circulation
    • carries oxygen poor blood from the heart through pulmonary trunk to the lungs for gas exchange
    • carries oxygen rich blood to the left atrium of the heart
  10. what happens at the pulmonary capillaries
    CO2 exchanged for O2. O2 rich blood flows through pulmonary veins to the left atrium
  11. pulmonary artery function
    transport oxygen poor blood to the lungs
  12. how does the blood flow rate compare between systemic and pulmonary circulation
    the same, since they are connected in series, the flow rate (analogous to current) is the same
  13. ischemia
    restriction in blood supply to tissues, causing shortage of oxygen to tissues. as a result of problems with blood vessels, damage to organs
  14. what is the charge of an electron?
    1.6 x 10^-19
  15. for an incompressible fluid what remains the same
    volume (Area *d)
  16. compared to sound waves at the tympanic membrane, the intensity felt by fluid that induces depolarization of the stereo cilia is?
    • I=Power/A
    • since the area of the stapes is smaller, intensity will be greater at stapes (pushing on the fluid)
  17. if tympanic membrane and ossicles were to be removed what happens to rodents?
    • less sensitive to sounds
    • intensity increases as waves travel through the ear (decrease in area), hence rodent will not be able to hear well
  18. what is the wavelength of pipe with one closed end?

  19. mutarotation
    change in optical rotation because of change in equilibrium between two anomers (ex. cyclic sugars interconvert between alpha and beta forms, need hemiacetal/ketal group to do this)
  20. specific rotation in terms of observed rotation?
    • observed rotation/(conc of product)(length of tube)
    • when concentration of produce decrease (less product), observed rotation decreased
    • but specific rotation remains the same
  21. five membered fructose ring, 6 membered glucose ring
    • fructofuranoside
    • glucopyranoside
  22. acetyl
    carbonyl with one methyl group
  23. what is the rate of the reaction proportional to?
    the slowest step. In the passage the slowest step is the breakdown of ES, hence the rate of the reaction is proportional to amount of ES present
  24. when glucose is oxidized in Fehling's reaction, how is the equilibrium of the hemiacetal D-glucose and linear D-glucose shifted?
    • linear form is favored since linear can be oxidized
    • as the linear form gets consumed, equilibrium shifted to produce more linear form
  25. steps to forming a disaccharide
    • 1. protonation of OH of one of the sugars (form H2O)
    • 2. OH (4)  from the other sugar attacks
    • 3. H2O leaves, and bond is formed
    • 4. Excess H leaves
  26. Kw
    • auto ionization of water H2O to H+ and OH-
    • greater the heat, greater Kw
    • the only thing that changes equilibrium constant is a change in temperature
  27. common ion effect
    • reduction in molar solubility of an ionic precipitate when one of its ions is in solution
    • molar solubility: amount of solute dissolved per liter of solution, Ksp does not change
  28. solubility of gases and non gaseous solutes with temperature
    • solubility of nongaseous solute increases with increase in temp, solubility of gaseous solute decreases with increase in temp
    • body temp is greater than 25C
