    Yep - at telophase there are just as many chromosomes in a nucleus as at prophase (because the dna rep happens before prophase). so the 1st row is the same as the row above it (26;30).
    However, sex cells have half the number of chromosomes so have 13, and therefore half the mass therefore 15.

    the mass for prophase is 60, why is it halved?

    Oh I see what you mean. Hmm. What I think is that at prophase there are still 26 chromosomes (but they are the double distinct chromosomes - ready to split) and in telophase there are only one chromatid (so half the mass). Does that make sense?

    The mass would normally be 30, but since prophase is the first distinct stage after DNA replication, and production of identical sister chromatids, it is 60.

    It is halved because the sister chromatids are pulled to opposite poles and two nuclei are formed in telophase.

    Hey, how did you find it?

    Personally, I thought it went well - that is there wasn't a question on there I didn't know. That said, there was one or two odd (and in my opinion, ambiguous) questions

    The first, not so ambiguous, Heart rate. Did you guys put 86.7 or 87? I was really unsure. I wrote 86.7, then changed it to 87.

    On the enzyme inhibition, did you say that it blocked it's active site? Or did you actually say it combined with it? I said blocked, resulting in less enzyme-substrate complexes. The reason being, Galactose is a product of lactose, so would it really fit into the same active site?

    Also, what did you put for "Describe what point A is"

    The rest went a breeze. I think I got the above right, I was just unsure if you know what I mean?

    Yeah I thought it was okay.

    I put 86.7.. yours is probably right though.

    It's a similar shape to the substrate, so binds to the active site preventing the lactose binding.

    I just said (can't remember the exact figures) that at 35% fat in the diet, 20 per 100,000 people died in that one country.
