Click to go to Next Slide Most cells consume oxygen and produce carbon dioxide. The higher the rate of metabolism, the more oxygen used by the cells, and by the animal as a whole. One way to determine the basal metabolic rate (BMR), therefore, is to measure the amount of oxygen consumed by the animal. In general, larger animals consume more oxygen than smaller animals. Rubner's Surface Rule maintains that the metabolic rate is affected by the ratio of surface area to volume. According to this theory, cells in smaller animals maintain a higher metabolic rate to compensate for the greater amount of heat lost from their bodies.

Click to go to Next Slide However, the same relationship between size and metabolic rate has been found in cold-blooded animals. These animals have body temperatures similar to the environment and do not compensate for heat loss. Clearly, other factors must be at work here. While you may predict that a larger animal will consume more oxygen than a smaller animal, the situation may be more complex if you compare the BMR (Basic Metabolic Rate) per gram of two animals. In this lab, the BMR’s of white rats of varying weights are determined by measuring their rates of oxygen consumption.

Click to go to Next Slide This data is then used to calculate oxygen consumption per gram of body weight, and the results are graphed to allow comparison of oxygen/minute vs. oxygen/hour/gram. Using this information you should be able to draw conclusions about the effect of body mass on the metabolic rate. In this simulation the rate of oxygen consumption is measured from laboratory rats. You will determine the basal metabolic rate for each rat and calculate the rate of oxygen consumed by a gram of tissue. In this way the effect of body mass on oxygen consumption and on oxygen consumption per gram is determined.

Click to go to Next Slide In the traditional wet lab a weighed rat is placed in a wire cage which is placed in a chamber containing soda lime. The chamber is sealed using a cork and soap bubbles are placed in the end of the calibrated tube. In this system the rat consumes oxygen and the soda lime absorbs exhaled carbon dioxide. Thus, as oxygen is used, the volume of air in the chamber decreases, and the bubbles move down the tube. The locations of the bubbles in the tube is measured every 15 minutes and the rate of oxygen consumption is calculated.

Questions

:00 Construct Bar Graphs From the data you have collected and calculated, construct bar graphs which compare the weights of different sized rats and their oxygen consumption. Use Bar Graph 1 to compare Average Milliliters of Oxygen consumed per Minute vs the Weight of the individual animals. Use Bar Graph 2 to compare the Average Milliliters of Oxygen consumed per Hour per Gram vs the Weight of the individual animals. Formulas for manipulating the data are given in Table 2.Bar Graph 1 Bar Graph 2 Table 2 Click to go to Next Slide

:00 Answer the Following Questions 1)Is there any relationship between the values for oxygen consumed / minute for each animal and the weight? 2) Is there any relationship between the values for oxygen consumed / hour / gram for each animal and the weight? 3) Why would a small rat have a different rate of oxygen consumption than a larger animal?

Data Table and Graphs

DATA TABLE 1 Rat Name Weight Difference *Preceding value minus succeeding value. See below for description. TIME (min)VALUE (ml) 0:00 10 ____ - ____ = ____ 1:00____ - ____ = ____ 2:00____ - ____ = ____ 3:00____ - ____ = ____ 4:00____ - ____ = ____ 5:00____ - ____ = ____ 6:00 Avg Difference Avg O 2 / Minute (total difference divided by 6) *For example if the value for time 0:00 is 10 and the value for time 1:00 is 8.4, you would subtract 8.4 from 10 for a difference of 1.6 (10 - 8.4 = 1.6). For the next value you would subtract the value given for 2:00 from 8.4. 10 Click to go back to last slide viewed Click to View A Printable Page
