TAQ 2:4

Postby zarajo31 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 2:53 pm

Hello

Is there generally any good websites with information on, I have found one useful so far and wrote around 100 words, only another 400 to go and can't find any information :/

Any help or pointers would be great

Thanks in advance

Hi Zara,

Can you just give me a brief run-down of what the question asks please - the syllabus may have changed if you are with a new awarding body. Looking through old notes, I've got information on the different muscle fibres? Is this right?

Give me some more direction with what the question is asking, and I'll help best I can!

Yes the question pretty much asks for how the muscle fibres rely on the properties of aerobic and anaerobic respiration?

Thanks Phil

Oki Doki,

I remember for this particular question that the Tortora & Grabowski book was very very useful - it gives a lot of information AND MORE to answer this. Do you have a copy of this book?

Have a look at this website link to get your basic understanding of muscle tissue anatomy http://apblogandrewstarck.blogspot.co.uk/2010/12/skeletal-muscle-tissue.html

Also, remember the different fibres have different names (this may HELP ALOT with your internet searches)

Slow Oxidative Fibre (Type I Slow Twitch)
Fast Oxidative-Glycolytic Fibre (Type IIa Fast Twitch)
Fast Glycolytic Fibre (Type IIb)

Remember that Anaerobic Respiration is a QUICK source of limited energy, whereas Aerobic Respiration is a more slow, prolonged release of energy via the production of ATP.

Think about what qualities and functions Slow Oxidative Fibres have; what makes the fibre better at one type of Respiration than the other?

....the same with Fast Glycolytic Fibres; what functions/qualities do these fibres have that make them better at one type of respiration than the other?

Think along the lines of blood supply, cell organelles, function/anatomy - HOW energy is created (How is energy created in Aerobic/Anaerobic Respiration?).

This should send you in the right direction!

All the best :thumbup: :D

EDIT: And do have a look at the Assessment Criteria. Can't stress this enough - have a look exactly what the criteria is looking for, as you will be marked for this TAQ entirely against the AC.
