Active transport is a form of specialized transport that enables cells of living organisms to take in essential nutrients, ions and other fundamental polar molecules for which they are found in high concentrations, but is still required for the organism. It is movement of these substances against the natural diffusion process which is from high to low concentration, active transport is from low to high concentration. Thus it involves energy in various forms to drive this process, usually it comes from the degradation or break down of a phosphate group from a molecule of ATP. This mode of transport also utilizes specific transport proteins to aid in the movement across the selectively permeable membrane of the cells for that organism.

While Sophia was driving to work, she tried to avoid hitting an animal and instead hit a parked car. As the car stopped, her body continued to move forward at the same speed and in the same direction. What happened to Sophia’s body in the car accident is an example of an explanation that combines several hypotheses and observations. a factual statement about how something behaves or functions. an observation that has been confirmed and accepted as true. a possible explanation or answer that is based on prior knowledge.


The most appropriate answer would be "a factual statement about how something behaves or functions".

The factual statement about how something behaves or functions is termed as a law and the first law of motion or law of inertia best explains that what happened to the body of Sophia in car accident.

Heres the same question with a picture. A driver starts his parked car and within the 5 seconds reaches a speed of 60km/h, as he travels veast. What is his acceleration?

I answered the question before but ill try to explain more. You know after 5 seconds they are going 60km/h, if you want to know how many km/h they are going per second (that would be their acceleration) you would take how fast he is going after those 5 seconds (60km/h)  and divide it by how many seconds it takes him to get to that speed (5sec) and your answer would be how many km/h they can get to in one second (their acceleration).

Which of the following types of immunity do you expect would be the most effective in preventing a particular illness for a long period of time and why? (2 points) Active immunity: it allows the body to gain antibodies from several other outside sources. Active immunity: it allows development of memory cells that can later help fight infection. Passive immunity: it requires less energy to be expended by the individual overall. Passive immunity: it does not require the body to be subjected to repeated vaccine injections.

Active immunity: it allows development of memory cells that can later help fight infection.
D If a person eats hurriedly and barely chews his food before swallowing it, what effect will it likely have on his stomach? His stomach will have to excrete enzymes to digest carbohydrates as well as those to digest protein. His stomach will pass the food directly on to his large intestine without digesting it. His stomach will become infected because there was not time for his saliva to sterilize his food completely. His stomach will take longer to grind the food into chyme than if he had ground it well with his teeth.

As subduction occurs, the oceanic crust moves from the _____ toward a ____. the answer options for both sides are Mid-ocean ridge Seafloor spreading Deep-ocean trench

Answer: Mid Oceanic Ridge (MOR) to Deep-Oceanic trench

Explanation: As the plate tectonic theory is a continuous process, so at some places, divergent plate movement takes place whereas at other places, convergent plate movement takes place. So from that context we can conclude that

  • initially two plates moves apart from each other,
  • and this plates then collides with the other nearby plates, thereby the heavier one gets subducted beneath the other, forming a deep sea trench.

The world produces about 3.9 billion tons of food every year. Of that amount, approximately 2.6 billion tons is consumed each year. The rest is wasted. What percentage of food is wasted every year? Choose the closest answer. 1. 30% 2.33.33% 3. 60% 4.66.66%

Answer: 2)  33.33%


Given :

Food produced each year = 3.9 billion

Food consumed each year = 2.6 billion

Food waster every year = Food produced each year -Food consumed each year = 3.9 billion- 2.6 billion = 1.3 billion

Percentage of food wasted each year = \frac{\text {food wasted each year}}{\text {Food produced per year}}\times 100\%

Putting in the values we get:

Percentage of food wasted each year = \frac{1.3billion}{3.9billion}\times 100\%=33.33\%

Thus the correct option is 33.33%.
