does not use oxygen

uses oxygen

uses carbon dioxide

22.Photosynthesis is

not dependent on chlorophyll

a process that produces glucose and oxygen

25.The first stage of cellular respiration, called ___________,takes place in the cytoplasm of the cell and needs no oxygen.


citric acid cycle




requires energy

utilizes proteins to move molecules across a membrane

moves molecules against a concentration gradient

does not require energy

cannot occur without a membrane present

30.Objects that are moving are said to possess:

living energy

potential energy


kinetic energy

31.The respiration pathway that evolved first is probably


aerobic respiration

citric acid cycle

32.The energy source for the process of photosynthesis is



carbon dioxide



33.Burning wood generates heat and light. What type of reactionis this?


kinetic energy


potential energy


34.What is meant by a “coupled reaction” in terms of energy?

many poymers are built simultaneously

energy released by one reactions powers another reaction

some reactions occur in the same organelle

35.The First Law of Thermodynamics states:

energy is constantly being created by entropy events

energy can be changed from one form to another, but cannot becreated or destroyed

energy can be used and then destroyed because of entropy'sactions on it

energy can be destroyed while it is producing entropy

36.How do we dispose of the carbon derived from the glucose thatis metabolized during respiration?

by breathing out

via our urine

it is broken down in lysosomes

37.Both plant and animal cells have mitochondria because theyboth

carry on respiration

carry on photosynthesis.

require water

38.What is Activation Energy?

the energy needed to initiate a reaction

the energy that transports water into cells
