12. The breakdown of glucose to pyruvic acid
a. yields 2 pyruvic acids from each glucose

oxygen is available to completely break down pyruvic acid. As a result, pyruvic acid is converted
a. hydrochloric acid
b. a strong base
c. lactic acid
d. stearic acid
16. Rigor mortis occurs because
a. proteins are beginning to break down, thus preventing flow of calcium ions.
b. the cells are dead (think technically here)
c. sodium ions leak out of the muscle

19. Theoretically, if a muscle were stretched to the point where thick and thin filaments no
longer overlapped,
a. no muscle tension would be generated
b. maximum force would be produced over the maximum range of travel
c. cross bridge attachment would be optimum because of all of the free binding sites on actin
d. ATP consumption would increase since the sarcomere is “trying” to contract
