Additional Problems
Oxidation and reduction reactions are chemical processes that result in a gain or loss in a. atoms b. neutrons c. electrons d. molecules e. protons
When an atom or molecule gains one or more electrons, it is said to be a. energized b. oxidized c. polarized d. activated e. reduced
The term oxidation is derived from the name of the element oxygen. This is reasonable, because it a. attracts electrons very strongly b. can be oxidized by accepting electrons c. contains more electrons than are needed d. can react chemically readily in its gas state e. is present everywhere
Redox reactions involving cytochromes take place ini) the area contained by A and Cii) the area contained by B and Ciii) A onlyiv) B onlyv) C only
Oxidation-reduction reactions: a. Transfer electrons from one molecule to anotherb. Are not used by living cellsc. Transfer protons from one molecule to anotherd. Reduce the amount of oxygen in the celle. Increase the amount of oxygen in the cell
Oxidation means: a. The gain of oxygen by a cellb. The loss of electrons from a moleculec. The loss of oxygen by a celld. The gain of electrons by a molecule
Reduction is the loss of electrons.a. Trueb. False
What do the terms "aerobic" and "anaerobic" mean?For bacteria, which catabolic pathways for glucose are aerobic? Which are anaerobic?
In terms of glucose, explain why biosynthetic anabolic pathways are not just the reversal of the corresponding catabolic pathways.
If the reactants of a chemical reaction gain electrons as they proceed to products, the reactants are being:A. oxidized.B. catabolized.C. reduced.D. made into anions.
When something is oxidized, it _____ electrons and when somethins is reduced, it _____ electrons.A. gains; losesB. loses; gainsC. gains; gainsD. loses; loses
Which statement describes redox reactions?A. Reduction does not occur without oxidationB. A molecule is reduced if it gains electrons.C. Oxidation generally involves the loss of H+ ions in addition to the loss of electrons.D. All of these describe redox reactions.
In this reaction, the reactant(s) are _____ and the coenzyme NAD is _____.A. oxidized; reducedB. reduced; reducedC. oxidized; oxidizedD. reduced; oxidized
In which of the following reactions does the underlined atom undergo an oxidation?A. Na → Na+ (Na atom → Na+ ion)B. Cl → Cl- (Cl atom → Cl- ion)C. CH3CH2OH → CH3CHO (ethanol → acetaldehyde)D. CH3CHO → CH3COO- (acetaldehyde → acetic acid)E. CH2=CH2 → CH3CH3 (ethene → ethane)
