Chemical Equilibrium biological examples

Postby ShravanPatel2B » Tue Mar 10, 2020 9:00 pm

What are some biological examples that have to do with chemical equilibrium? What exactly is meant by this in the course outline? Does it refer to problems that have to do with biological examples or do we need to be familiar with certain biological phenomena?

An example is a neuron and its action potential. It is at equilibrium, but when it receives a signal, Na+ ions rush in causing it to veer from equilibrium until the K+ ions rush out, returning it to equilibrium.

I don't think we need to know certain ones but know how to apply the topics to biological examples. For example, the stomach acid one on the midterm is a biological example question.
