    I think the general theme was that breaking down lipids in milk made fatty acids which would lower its pH. And that bile was better than water because the line on the graph was steeper

    Fatty acids and glycerol are produced, therefore the fatty acids cause the solution to become acidic thus reducing the pH level.

    The question about the 3 equipment you had to use and how you would use it was a bit baffling. I did not realise it was quadrats

    It didnt have any quadrats in the equipment list so I think it would be unfair for them to ask for that. I think you were supposed to use the transect and the use the ruler as a type of quadrat.

    i put that u 'use the tape measure as a kind of transect then use the ruler to measure the leaves', cuz that is part of the hypothesis - leave size gets bigger as light decreases or sumthing like that

    It's 400 because the line was 4 cm but 40 mm.

    40 / 0.1 = 400

    Hello ! My instincts first discovered that too, however as you look closely at the graph you notice that the rate is still increasing even when Excerise is stopped ! There was a vertical line to show when they stopped excersising and the rate was increasing after this up to 82/88
    Hope this helped ! How did u find the exam overall ?
    You just used from the rate from the time they stopped exercising, and ignored everything after that

    Yeh I didnt even think about using the ruler to measure leaf length, probably right. Either way I think it was a very badly worded question and paper, hopefully that'll be reflected in the grade boundaries

    As it stated that leaves grew up the tree, I said I'd use the tape measure to measure how high the leaves grew up the trunk, measure the light with the measure thing and used the ruler to measure the length of the leaves... it seemed quite smart but everyone talking about quadrats has me scared! I thought my response was pretty much common knowledge... but I seem to have over thought it maybe?
