Re: Chemistry Book Chapter 8 Page 180

Thanks for the question! Essentially, when doing titrations, we are interested in the amount of the species that is present. Typically, we understand that value as we have some volume of a solution which is some molarity in concentration. Both of those values are needed to actually understand how mu...

Re: QBook Bio #275

Thanks for the question! During prophase, chromosomes get denser so that they can be organized and the necessary preparations for division/replication can be made. By the end of prophase, chromosomes are organized fairly densely together, but if we prophase-arrested and stained, then we wouldn't get...

Re: Stereotype threat and self-fulfilling prophecy

Thanks for the question! I think it's definitely fair to say that they are similar and connected concepts. Stereotype threat is more specific with regard to stereotypes being the impetus for a change in performance, but they're definitely related. Also, I definitely don't think you're overthinking i...

Re: Lesson 7 Problem Solving Cooldown #4

Thanks for the question! I think the problem here is that you're thinking about this in terms of the total and not as a series of steps. AMP --> ADP requires 32 kJ/mol. ADP --> ATP requires an additional 45 kJ/mol. In other words, the values you look up cover one step only, not the total energy requ...

Re: 2000 Q book: Q 843 Biochem

Oh, right -- you need to use the image to rule out B. Since the S-loop is blocking the pore, we need to move it out of the way in order to open the pore up. If it were more attracted to the intracellular side, then that would still leave the pore blocked (because it enters the membrane from the extr...

Re: NYU for Canadian applicants?

I wish I knew for sure, but I don't have any extra information on that question. Hopefully someone else will be able to chime in with a definitive answer. If we don't hear anything, though, please do follow up once you hear back from NYU admissions!

Good luck!

Re: AAMC FL2 B/B - Q#20

Thanks for the question! There's another post on this question that has some useful information in it. Here's the text from that: While it is true that the passage states that protein x can only be detected in anaerobic conditions, that's irrelevant to this question. This question is asking what wou...

Re: FL 2 PS Questions

Thanks for the question! I've long been annoyed by this question, since it does sort of require some background demographic/historical knowledge. I think the key here, though, beyond just knowing about the increase in infants born following WWII (history major checking in!), is to go one-by-one thro...
