Viewed from space, Earth offers no clues about the diversity of life forms that reside there. The first forms of life on Earth are thought to have been microorganisms that existed for billions of years in the ocean before plants and animals appeared. The mammals, birds, and flowers so familiar to us are all relatively recent, originating 130 to 200 million years ago. Humans have inhabited this planet for only the last 2.5 million years, and only in the last 200,000 years have humans started looking like we do today.

Sample Questions from the Biology 302 Final Quiz

Question: How many tunics does a vein have?






as many as an artery

Question: Which of the following would cause blood pressure to drop?


increase blood viscosity

increase peripheral resistance

increase blood volume

increase cardiac output

none of the above

Question: At any given moment, where is most of the blood located in the circulatory system?


in the heart

in the veins

in the capillaries

in the arteries

in arterioles and venules

Question: What is the formula for pulse pressure?


Systolic Pressure + Diastolic Pressure

Systolic Pressure x Diastolic Pressure

Systolic Pressure - Diastolic Pressure

systolic pressure / diastolic pressure

Diastolic pressure x (systolic pressure - diastolic pressure)

Question: Which of the following is NOT true?


In the absence of neural input, the heart beats automatically at a rate set by its "Pace Maker"

The heart receives both sympathetic and parasympathetic innervation

Norepinephrine increases heart rate

Acetylcholine will slow heart rate

cardiac rate


all of the above

none of the above

Question: Cardiac Output is equal to cariac rate multiplied by


end diastolic volume

total peripheral resistance

stroke volume

systolic pressure


Question: When the left ventricle is over-stretched with blood, it responds by contracting with greater force (the Frank-Starling Law). Which of the following is responsible for this phenomenon?


Chemoreceptors in the pulmonary trunk

Baroreceptors in the aorta and carotids

stretch receptors in the left ventricle

sympathetic nerves connecting to the heart

None of the above

Question: Which of the following in NOT true?


the systolic pressure occurs when the left ventricle is fully contracted

blood pressure is recorded in mm Hg

the minimal blood pressure is the diastolic pressure

blood pressure is taken by auscultating the brachial artery

none of the above (all statements are true)
