photoelectric effect

There is an AAMC circuit and photoelectric effect problem which I had a question about. The question is asking about how the final kinetic energy will of the electron upon reaching the anode from the cathode will be compared to its potential energy when it's released from the cathode. The passage te...

Re: vestibular vs kinesthetic sense

Ok thank you. I had a question about the four intelligence theories of Spearman, Gardner, Thurstone, and Sternberg. How well should we know these and their differences? I've seen Gardner's 9 factor theory on one if not two next step full-lengths and the questions were fairly specific about one of th...

sensation v perception

I have a question on sensation and perception, specifically with the absolute threshold. If the absolute threshold is generally detecting our sensation, and we require sensation to have perception, in a question which says that someone does not notice an audible stimulus at 0db, why would a correct ...

vestibular vs kinesthetic sense

I have a question regarding the vestibular and kinesthetic senses as it pertains the inner ear. The inner ear has both semicircular canals, the auditory nerve, vestibular nerve, and vestibular labyrinth. However, how does this pertain to the utricle and saccule and the sensation of lateral movement ...

Re: glycolosis vs. gluconeogensis/pfk2, pfk1, fructose 2,6p

Thank you that does make sense. As far as memorizing the structures of the intermediates for any of the metabolic pathways, I know there is an AAMC question which is asking us to find the structure of one of the intermediates of the TCA cycle, is it probably a better idea to simply know the number o...

glycolosis vs. gluconeogensis/pfk2, pfk1, fructose 2,6p

Hi I have a question regarding the ATP and AMP levels with glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. If glycolysis is the breaking down of glucose to make ATP or energy, and gluconeogenesis is using other ways of energy such as acetyl CoA, lipids, and amino acids to make glucose and thus energy, why are their...

huckel's rule/conjugation and aromaticity and resonance

I have a question on Huckel's rule conjugation and aromaticity. I am a bit confused because I was watching the Spectroscopy Review video and I noticed that on one of the quiz question cyclohexanol was not conjugated whereas phenol was conjugated and aromatic. My understanding was that aromatic compo...

Re: siRNA vs. miRNA

Ok cool, that makes sense. The free fall scenario makes sense because it's almost like free falling in the sky and hitting terminal velocity where there is no acceleration but there is still a net movement downward. Thank you for your help with these concepts.

Re: siRNA vs. miRNA

Ok Thank you. I have another question regarding the apparent weight and accelerations of an elevator going up, down, and remaining at rest. If we had an example of a person standing on a scale in an elevator accelerating upward, I know that the normal force and gravitational forces will remain the s...

siRNA vs. miRNA

I was having some trouble distinguishing these two different types of RNA by function.

Is there a better way to think about these two?

Thank you
