Induction: Induced & Permanent Charging

Induction: Induced & Permanent Charging Static electricity can be generated through: Friction, Conduction, INDUCTION Induction INDUCTION involves the movement of electrons in a neutral object when a charged object is brought close to the neutral object. The movement occurs WITHOUT DIRECT CONTACT between objects. Induced Charge Separation/ Temporary Charging When a negatively charged rod is…

Drugs: Types & Effects

Class Typical Effects Overdose Effects Depressants Alcohol Increases the activity of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) By increasing an inhibitory neurotransmitter, alcohol dampens down neural firing Also decreases the activity of glutamate, a major excitatory neurotransmitter Person literally becomes less inhibited and feels euphoric An initial upper phase from the release of inhibitions, followed by a downer…

How Does Cyanide kill you? Cytochrome C Inhibitor

These processes occur on the inner mitochondrial membrane.  The ETC consists of four main protein complexes: I, NADH dehydrogenase, II,  succinate dehydrogenase, III, cytochrome complex, and IV, cytochrome oxidase.  In each protein complex, are cofactors, which transfer electrons from NADH and FADH2 to O2.  NADH donates an electron to complex I, releasing NAD+ and an…

Descent with Modification: A Darwinian View of Life

Darwin’s Five Observations More young are produced than survive Individuals vary in their characteristics Some characteristics are better than others These characteristics are inheritable Long periods of time are available Darwin’s Two Major Points Many species of organisms presently inhabiting the earth are descendants from ancestral species that were different from modern species The mechanism…
