Metabolism Problem Set

This problem set is designed to give a basic understanding of some of the fundamental concepts of metabolism. The problems and tutorials should be used in conjunction with the lecture materials in your course for a more complete coverage of the material. Some of the questions will test for your understanding of the basic concepts of metabolism as applied to human biology.

Instructions: The following problems have multiple choice answers. Correct answers are reinforced with a brief explanation. Incorrect answers are linked to tutorials to help solve the problem.
  1. Glucose Conversion
  2. Products of Glycolysis
  3. Trematol
  4. Dinitrophenol
  5. Effect of pH on Mitochondria
  6. Lactic Acid Production
  7. Pyruvate/ Lactate Ratio
  8. Mitochondria
  9. Electron Transport Chain
  10. Acidity During Electron Transport
  11. Fermentation
  12. Hexokinase
  13. Storing Usable Energy
  14. Terminal Electron Acceptor
  15. Metabolism During Heart Attack
  16. ATP Production
  17. ATP synthase
