other biological examples

Postby Jennifer Lathrop 1F » Sat Dec 08, 2018 7:21 pm

Besides acid rain, are there any other biological examples of acid/base that we should be familiar with?

You might also want to know about buffering in blood - this Khan Academy article explains it well, if you scroll down to "Buffering System of Blood".

Might also be important to know that carbonic acid is formed by the reaction of water and CO2, which happen to be the products of cellular respiration.

this refers to acid rain. also remember that CO2 is a product of A LOT of other biological and inorganic processes, like decomposition and pollution from combustion engines in cars, etc.

Among othrs you might want to know the acid reaction present in digestion and those that occur in filtration of fluids in the body. But these you shouldn't be concerned about as he is probably not going to test your biological knowledge as much as he is your chemical.
