Re: Really confused and struggling

I don't know about the Human Biology book, if it doesn't help then you had better request an extension from your tutor.

Re: Really confused and struggling

Hi, First of all I recommend that you book a tutorial with your tutor, as this is quite a challenging unit. TAQ 1 part 1:The question asks you about the three laws of inheritance, these need to be clearly explained with reference to Mendel's work. TAQ 2 There are 4 parts to this question, and these ...

Re: Struggling

You will have been sent a code for an exam guide. About half way through the guide there is a checklist on what to revise. You should revise pages 26-38 on the materials document, learning both the functions and the structures of the macromolecules, including being able to recognise molecules . In t...

Re: aspects of Human Physiology TAQ 3 part 2 B

Hi, The key to this question is to understand the effect of the hormone ADH. What effect does it have on the kidney? How does this then affect the blood and urine? You can really go into some depth here and explore the effect at the cellular level. You should then be able to explain what happens whe...

Re: macromolecules

Hi TAQ 1 parts 2a and 2b. The way to do these questions is to set it out step by step. Start with the genotype of the parents. Underneath list the possible gamete genotypes they produce. Then construct the punnett diagram. There's quite a bit about this in the DLC materials. It is important then to ...

Re: Struggling :( Intro to physics TAQ 4

In that case I recommend that you request a tutorial with your tutor to see what it is about circuits that you are having problems with.
Best wishes

Re: Struggling :( Intro to physics TAQ 4

It depends which part of TAQ 4 you are struggling with.
It really helps to print out/draw the diagram of the circuit, and then write on it what you know from the question, as well any other voltages, current or resistance that you have worked out.

Re: Macromolecules and key biological principles

Hi, You are on the right track about anaerobic respiration, although the equation is missing something. Are you talking about anaerobic respiration in plants or animals? It is good if you can mention both forms. Regarding TAQ1 part 2 a. You do need to understand what heterozygous and homozygous mean...

Re: Aspects of Human Phys Alternative Assessment TAQ 2

After explaining the function of ADH which inevitably involves some explanation of kidney function (but not a whole detailed explanation), then the symptoms do need to be explained, i.e why does a lack of ADH lead to these symptoms?

Re: Human physiology body temperature

Hi,

Limitations can refer to when the attempt by the body to cool down causes other problems and may not effectively cool the body down. Or in trying to raise the body heat another problem is created.

Hope that helps.

Re: identify and explain joint and muscle movement

I think you have submitted the question to the wrong section. A buffer prevents the pH of a solution from changing too much.
