Example text

The mechanism for water's permeability still is being studied. If a membrane is not permeable to glucose, but is permeable to water, then water will move down its concentration gradient-with a net flow, or flux, from the 1M side (where water is in higher concentration) to the 2M side. This flux of water is called oSlnosis. The net movement of water can be offset by applying a pressure on the 2M side, resisting the flux of water. Thus, the concentration difference in water produces an osmotic pressure, whose magnitude depends on the difference in concentration of the glucose (and hence water) on the two sides of the membrane.

Just as human language contains information, so can this genetic language. In the genetic language, most of the words specify particular amino acids. APPl,fCATION: TIlE CALOIUe CONTENT O}' FOODS We have gained enough knowledge about the structure of different kinds of molecules to understand why certain foods contain more calories than others. Calories are a measure of the heat energy present in the bonds of food molecules. Such heat energy can be released by burning the organic molecules in the presence of oxygen, producing water and carbon dioxide.
