When a reaction has reached equilibrium, is anything happening in the reaction?
Yes, the reaction is still happening, it is just going forwards and backwards at the same rate.
Why does transcription and translation happen at different times for one gene in Eukaryotes, but can happen at the same time in Prokaryotes?
Prokaryotes do not have a nuclear envelope, so Ribosomes can translate the mRNA as it is made, while mRNA has to finish transcribing in Eukaryotes before it can be transported out of the nucleus to a Ribosome for translation.
Why do you think it is important for the gallbladder to be located behind the liver and above the small intestines?
The gallbladder stores bile created by the liver and delivers it to the small intestine for the digestion of fats.
