Multiple Choice
Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question.
____
1. Which of the following statements is a logical consequence of the second law of thermodynamics?
a. If the entropy of a system increases, there must be a corresponding decrease in the
b.
c.
d.
e.
____
entropy of the universe.
If there is an increase in the energy of a system, there must be a corresponding
decrease in the energy of the rest of the universe.
Every energy transfer requires activation energy from the environment.
Every chemical reaction must increase the total entropy of the universe.
Energy can be transferred or transformed, but it cannot be created or destroyed.
2. The mathematical expression for the change in free energy of a system is
G
HT
S.
Which of the following is (are) correct?
a.
S is the change in enthalpy, a measure of randomness.
b.
H is the change in entropy, the energy available to do work.
c.
G is the change in free energy.
d. T is the temperature in degrees Celsius.
____
3. Which of the following is true for all exergonic reactions?
a. The products have more total energy than the reactants.
b. The reaction proceeds with a net release of free energy.
c. Some reactants will be converted to products.
d. A net input of energy from the surroundings is required for the reactions to
proceed.
e. The reactions are nonspontaneous.
____
4. Chemical equilibrium is relatively rare in living cells. Which of the following could be an example
of a reaction at chemical equilibrium in a cell?
a. a reaction in which the free energy at equilibrium is higher than the energy content
at any point away from equilibrium
b. a chemical reaction in which the entropy change in the reaction is just balanced by
an opposite entropy change in the cell's surroundings
c. an endergonic reaction in an active metabolic pathway where the energy for that
reaction is supplied only by heat from the environment
d. a chemical reaction in which both the reactants and products are only used in a
metabolic pathway that is completely inactive
e. There is no possibility of having chemical equilibrium in any living cell.
____
5. Which of the following best describes enthalpy (H)?
a. the total kinetic energy of a system
b. the heat content of a chemical system
c. the system's entropy
d. the cell's energy equilibrium

____
6. A number of systems for pumping across membranes are powered by ATP. Such ATP-powered
pumps are often called ATPases although they don't often hydrolyze ATP unless they are
simultaneously transporting ions. Small increases in calcium ions in the cytosol trigger a number of
different intracellular reactions, so the cells must keep the calcium concentration quite low. Muscle
cells also transport calcium from the cytosol into the membranous system called the sarcoplasmic
reticulum (SR). If a muscle cell cytosol has a free calcium ion concentration of 10–7 in a resting cell,
while the concentration in the SR can be 10–2, then how is the ATPase acting?
a. The ATP must be powering an inflow of calcium from the outside of the cell into
the SR.
b. ATP must be transferring Pi to the SR to enable this to occur.
c. ATPase activity must be pumping calcium from the cytosol to the SR against the
d. The calcium ions must be diffusing back into the SR along the concentration
e. The route of calcium ions must be from SR to the cytosol, to the cell's
environment.
____
7. Sucrose is a disaccharide, composed of the monosaccharides glucose and fructose. The hydrolysis of
sucrose by the enzyme sucrase results in
a. bringing glucose and fructose together to form sucrose.
b. the release of water from sucrose as the bond between glucose and fructose is
broken.
c. breaking the bond between glucose and fructose and forming new bonds from the
atoms of water.
d. production of water from the sugar as bonds are broken between the glucose
monomers.
e. utilization of water as a covalent bond is formed between glucose and fructose to
form sucrase.
____
8. Reactants capable of interacting to form products in a chemical reaction must first overcome a
thermodynamic barrier known as the reaction's
a. entropy.
b. activation energy.
c. endothermic level.
d. heat content.
e. free-energy content.
____
9. Which of the following statements regarding enzymes is true?
a. Enzymes decrease the free energy change of a reaction.
b. Enzymes increase the rate of a reaction.
c. Enzymes change the direction of chemical reactions.
d. Enzymes are permanently altered by the reactions they catalyze.
e. Enzymes prevent changes in substrate concentrations.
