  33. An object's image lies as far behind a plane mirror as the object is in front of it.
  34. Ideal gas assymes that molecules have negligible volume, they do not experience intermolecular forces, and that molecules do not liquefy at low temperature.
  35. volume flow rate is given by the equation f = Av.
  36. lens equation
    1/i +1/i = 1/f

  41. F= keQ/r^2
  42. At constant pressure, the volue drops by a factor of 1/273 for every 1 kelvin drop in temperature.
  43. Doubling the amount of enzyme doubles the number of available active sites, and so doubles the rate of the reaction. Reaction rate is dependent on enzyme concentration.
  44. Alternative splicing can create different versions of a protein within a single cell, or different versions of a protein in different cell types.

    • has an internal mirror plane
    • has an even number of chiral centers
    • has an enantiomer that is identical to it
