How flame test colors are produced?
The colors observed during the flame test result from the excitement of the electrons caused by the increased temperature. The electrons "jump" from their ground state to a higher energy level. As they return to their ground state, they emit visible light.
How many ATP are produced in HMP shunt?
Although the ATP is not directly produced in HMP shunt Hence the formation of 12 molecules of reduced NADP via hexose monophosphate shunt ultimately can lead to synthesis of 36 molecules of ATP. Thus, capture of energy released in oxidation of glucose via this pathway (hexose monophosphate shunt) is as effective as that of glycolytic-Krebs cycle pathway.

Why some atoms are chemically inert while some are so reactive?
Inert gases are completely inert to basic chemical reactions (such as combustion, for example) because their outer valence shell is completely filled with electrons. ... For inert atoms or molecules, a lot of energy is involved before it can combine with other elements to form compounds. While atoms with vacant valence shell react to complete them so that they become stabilized.
