CH 24 Questions
1. 146 molecules of ATP.
2. Hypothermia is low body temperature from prolonged uncontrolled exposure to cold. Uncorrected, thesituation progresses to a coma and finally death by cardiac arrest, once the body temperature approaches 21C .The elderly are more susceptible to hypothermia than the young because, older people have a lowermetabolism rate than young people therefore; it is more difficult for them to maintain normal body temperatures like younger adults.
3. With a diagnosis of atherosclerosis and high blood pressureFrank should avoid foods that contain high trans fats and saturated fatty acids. Trans fat is found in many processed foods, such as cookies, crackers, snack foods, and other processed foods madewith shortening, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, or hydrogenated vegetable oils, including some margarines and salad dressings. He should add fruits and vegetables , whole grains, lean meats,poultry without skin, seafood, and fat-free or low-fat milk, dairy products, nuts, and seeds. I would suggest that he add Vitamin E and also include foods low in sodium, added sugar, solid fats, andrefined grains. Adding any kind of physical activity and/or an exercise program can reduce the chances of getting atherosclerosis and high blood pressure.
4. In chemiosmosis the electrons from NADHare passed along an electron transport chain. As the electrons are passed along, their energy is used to pump protons across the inner mitochondrial membrane. This is a gradient of protons; theprotons can come back across the membrane through an enzyme called ATP synthase “energy production.” If the membrane was leaky, which means many of the hydrogens are leaking back across, energy cannot bemade properly therefore halting the production of energy. No energy = no calories = losing weight.
5. Since there is a lack of fruit on the island Simon’s body is being deprived of Vitamin C,...
