Describe pH and how it is measured.
pH is a logrithmic scale of the concentration of free H+ ions within a solution. The larger the concentration of H+ ions, the more basic the solution. The pH of a solution is typically measured using ion-sensitive probes which measure potential of the solution. These probes are calibrated through titration of a known concentration of a strong base or acid and measuring the potential.
Describe the difference between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic DNA.
Prokaryotic cells contain a single chromosome with circular DNA. This DNA consists of one copy of the genome and a single replication site. Eukaryotic cells contain their DNA mainly in the nucleus. Eukaryotic cells have multiple chromosomes containing multiple copies of their genome. Eukaryotic DNA also contains multiple replication sites and introns, which prokaryotic DNA does not have. Finally, eukaryotic chromosomes are compacted with histones while prokaryotic chromosomes are not.
