Problem 12SAQ

Which reaction could be used to generate electricity in a voltaic electrochemical cell?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Chapter 6: Lipids, Membranes, and First Cells 2/8/16­2/12/16 Lipids and Membranes  Plasma membrane: protein containing lipid bilayer surrounding cells o Separates life inside vs outside of cell o Regulates the passage of molecules and ions into and out of the cell; selective barrier  Hydrophobic/non polar molecules will pass more easily  Hydrophilic/polar/large molecules won't pass easily so proteins in the membranes help facilitate them passing o Has a polar phosphate head and a non­polar fatty acid chain  How do membranes Help life o Enable different internal and external solutions o Help localize and bring together reactions that otherwise wouldn't occur; more efficient also maximized o Localized specific functions  What is a lipid o Lipid: major hydrocarbon component which are normaly nonpolar and hydrophobic; length varies and impacts the fluidity  Isoprene: hydrocarbon chain  5'C carbond  Fatty Acid: hydrocarbon chain bonded to a carboxyl group formed by adding 2 carbon subunits  Carboxyl group is why it's called a fatty acid  Types of Lipids o Isoprene chains ­ have a methyl group sticking out  Steroids (chelesterol)
