UExcel Anatomy and Physiology Test
Which of the following is not true when the body is positioned in the anatomical position?
The correct answer:
The palms are facing backward
Which of these is not a hydrophilic substance?
Lipids are hydrocarbon-containing compounds that serve as the structural and functional building blocks of living organisms.
True/False: The wrist is distal to the elbow.
The wrist joint is located far away from the elbow joint. The proximal row of carpal bones houses the scaphoid. The ankle joint is close to the knee joint.
Which of the following lists best exemplifies the concept of rising complexity levels?
The correct answer:
Organelles, cells, tissues, organs, systems
What is the link between the thoracic cavity and the abdominopelvic cavity?
The rib cage surrounds the thoracic cavity, the superior subdivision of the anterior cavity. The lungs and the heart, positioned in the mediastinum, are housed in the thoracic cavity. The diaphragm separates the thoracic cavity from the inferior abdominopelvic cavity by forming the thoracic cavity's floor.
The citric acid cycle includes:
The citric acid cycle integrates glucose, fat, and protein metabolism. The cycle's processes are carried out by eight enzymes, which totally oxidize acetate (a two-carbon molecule) in the form of acetyl-CoA into two carbon dioxide and water molecules apiece.
How do living organisms use oxygen?
Oxygen assists organisms in growing, reproducing, and converting food into energy. Humans receive oxygen by breathing into their lungs through their nose and mouth. Our cells use oxygen to break down food and obtain the energy we require to exist.
Lipids are produced in:
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) produces structural lipids, which are then actively transferred to the membranes of other organelles.
A decomposition reaction can be represented as:
AB-->A+Bis a common symbol for a decomposition reaction, where AB is the substrate and A and B are the products.
