Study Guide for Biology 1110 Laboratory Practical One Exercise 1 Microscopy 9959 7 8 9 l 0 What is meant by compound light microscope Know the parts and the function of the parts of the compound light microscope Know the steps for focusing a sample at the lowest power What is meant by parfocal Be able to calculate the total magni cation of a scope with any objective Does low power or high power have a larger field of view How did we calculate the field ofview of our scopes How do you prepare a wet mount of cheek cells What is meant by depth of focus What is meant by inversion related to microscope use Be able to identify Spirogyra and cheek cells Exercise 2 Carbon Compounds 1 Know the basic premise of the 4 tests performed for organic compounds and be able to identify a positive reaction Organic Compound TEST POSITIVE REACTION Carbohydrates SIMPLEgluco Benedict s must be Yelloworangebrick red se heated BlueBlack COMPLEX Iodine Lugol s starch Lipids Paper Spot Nondrying translucent spot Sudan IV The Sudan IV crystals are fat soluble and turn the solution red in a positive reaction Proteins Biuret violet 2 Be able to give examples and characteristics of carbohydrates lipids and proteins 3 Be able to explain steps that you would take to determine the types of organic compounds 8094 found in an unknown sample What are the monomers for proteins What are the monomers for carbohydrates What are polar versus nonpolar compounds How are monomers or subunits of organic compounds linked together to create polymers Exercise 3 What Determines Metabolic Reaction Rates What is an enzyme substrate active site product For our lab experiments what served as the enzyme What was the substrate What was the product How could you tell if the products water and oxygen had been produced How did temperature affect catalase activity How did pH affect catalase activity Given a series of tubes be able to identify the tubes with the highest catalase activity and the least catalase activity What does it mean to denature an enzyme 8 Why is enzyme shape important to enzyme function What determines the shape of an enzyme or other protein How can heat alter the shape How can pH changes alter shape Why 10 How were the toober and pushpins used to model protein structure 9939er N gt1 gt0 Exercise 4 Cell Structure and Plasma Membrane Function 1 Be able to de ne the following terms solute solvent diffusion osmosis isotonic hypertonic hypotonic Know differences in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells Be able to identify the prokaryotic Anabaena under the microscope Be able to recognize the eukaryotic protista Paramecium under the microscope Be able to recognize and identify differences in plant and animal cells Be able to recognize atypical plant or animal cell under the microscope Be able to identify elodea cells in hypertonic and hypotonic solutions Be able to identify red blood cells in hypertonic and isotonic solutions Know what happens to red blood cells that have been placed in a hypotonic solution How and why do plant cells respond differently than animal cells to hypotonic solutions 0 We used dialysis tubing to represent a cell membrane Be able to describe which substances could cross the membrane and which could not and how we know The glucose water and iodine were all able to cross the membrane Starch was not How dizl you know HpW QP39HeP P N Exercise 5 Photosynthesis 1 Know the overall formula for photosynthesis What is chromatography What is meant by the visible light spectrum Be able to identify pigments on a strip of chromatography paper based on their location and appearance Explain how chromatography separates plant pigments How are Rf values calculated What is spectrophotmetry Be able to graph and interpret graphs showing the absorption spectrum of the photosynthetic pigments 59 9V39
