Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. It took me a long while to understand this graph. Do you understand it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Take a look at the bottom of the graph. It shows us three different things that we can find, in our small intestine. Hydrochloric acid, Proteins, and Fats.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When our small intestine finds any of these things inside of it, it causes our pancreas to make "pancreatic juice."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And this pancreatic juice can have different things in it, depending on what was inside the small intestine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Should I rephrase? Is there something you don't understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no I got it.. but im still not sure about the question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. We're getting to that.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Again, the kind of juice that the pancreas makes....depends on what is inside the small intestine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example, if there is hydrochloric acid inside the intestine..... the pancreatic juice will have a lot of sodium bicarbonate. Take a look at the bar graph again. Do you see that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. We need to understand the chemistry behind it. When sodium bicarbonate combines with hydrochloric acid..... it makes three things: 1. Salt 2. Carbon dioxide 3. Water

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, again, if there is Hydrochloric acid inside of our small intestine, then our pancreas will make juice, with a lot of bicarbonate it.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is because we need sodium bicarbonate, in order to react with the Hydrochloric acid, and turn it into three things: 1. Salt 2. Carbon dioxide 3. Water In other words, we need sodium bicarbonate, in order to kind of break down the hydrochloric acid.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, can you look at the graph and tell me.. when there are fats inside of our small intestine, what kind of juice will our pancreas make? What will there be a large amount of, in the juice?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I mean it IS in the juice.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But take a look at Fats.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are two bars above fats.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Read what I asked, and tell me what you think.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0bicarbonate and digestive enzymes?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Those are the two bars above fats. Which one is higher?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. Great. Here's what it means. If there are fats in our small intestine.... then there will be a lot of digestive enzymes, in our pancreatic juice. You get it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here's a question: What if there's Hydrochloric acid in our small intestine? What will there be a lot of, in our pancreatic juice?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And how about proteins? What if there are proteins in our small intestine? What will our pancreatic juice look like?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0RIght. There will be an equal amount of both.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. So let's go back to Fats. Again, when there are fats in our small intestine, our pancreatic juice will have lots of Digestive Enzymes in it. (We can see this on the graph.) This is because digestive enzymes are needed, in order to break down fat.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And again, if we have Hydrochloric acid in our small intestine, then our pancreatic juice will have a lot of Bicarbonate in it. Because Bicarbonate is needed, in order to react and break down Hydrochloric acid.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can also see this on the graph.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Our pancreas produces whatever is needed, in order to break down the things inside of our small intestine.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's a little blurry, but I'm pretty sure the first one is pointed at the fat cells. The second one is actually pointed at the "alveoli."

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Fat stores energy away for us. Our body uses the energy, whenever it needs it, in order to stay alive. Fat also keeps us warm.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know what "homeostasis" is?

anonymous
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah. It's our body's way of keeping a steady internal environment.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No problem. Don't forget to mention the part about how our body stores fat, for energy.
