You develop active immunity to a pathogen by

Active immunity can be natural or artificially developed. Naturally acquired - a person is exposed to a live pathogen, develops an immune response - and then creates memory T and B cells. Artificially acquired - a person is given a vaccine (which contains the antigen). This stimulates the same response, without the symptoms of the disease.

1. Do you think the density of the ice affected the melting rate of the ice, or do you think adding the objects affected the melting rates? Be sure to include data to support your answer.

Answer:

The density of an object refers to an extensive property, which signifies that it does not rely upon the concentration of the substance. Each and every substance in this world exhibits its characteristic density. Therefore, it would not influence the rate of melting as it does not fluctuate. However, adding the objects could accelerate the procedure as each object exhibits energy in the form of heat, which could provoke the mediating force for the melting process.

PLEASE HELP!!! ASAP 30 POINTS!! Why are the Galapagos Islands important in our understanding of how species adapt to their enviornment? Discuss it's geographic location, what Darwin concluded, and the research of the Grants.

Darwin’s research showed that finches beaks are different to fit their food source. It also started the theories of evolution and natural selection. The Grant’s research on the Galapagos Islands showed that evolution exists and can happen over a course of two years. They proved Darwin’s theories are true. Since all the plants and animals are native to the islands, they had to adapt to the new food source and climate. Beaks, size, etc. are all changes made to these organisms to be able to live on the islands. 

The Galapagos Islands are located in Ecuador and sit on the Pacific Ocean. The Galapagos Islands were formed from 3 million to 5 million years ago. Volcanic eruptions typically shield volcanoes formed the islands. They are located over a “particularly hot mantel” that causes volcanic activity. The outcome of many eruptions were islands because the left overs were pushed to the surface. The Galapagos islands are pretty big reaching an area of 3,093 miles. The temperatures range from 69 to 84 degrees creating a typically warm climate. 

Darwin studied medicine at age 16, but became fascinated specimens around the globe. He developed theories of natural selection and evolution. While he was on the Galapagos islands, he studied thirteen different species of finches.

 He observed finches and different beak structures. He observed their ability to consume foods such as nuts, bugs, and fruit. He concluded all were related to their beaks. For example, long, slender beaks are good to reach in the flowers of a cactus.

Charles concluded that the finches beaks are examples of adaptive radiation. To fit in the island, they had to adapt to the conditions. This lead to Charles’ theory of natural selection. 

Charles came to the conclusion of evolution and natural selection. Natural selection is the process where organisms adapt to their environment to survive and produce more offspring. Evolution is where different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed. These theories have changed science forever and leave today’s scientists marveling of his theories.

I hope this helps:)

QUESTION POSTED AT 01/04/2020 - 01:38 PM

Algal blooms occur due to the presence of an excess amount of nutrients, like phosphorus, in fresh water. How does excess phosphorus get into fresh water? A) The nutrients are added to the water by fishermen to feed the fish. B) The nutrients leak into fresh water from oil refineries in the vicinity. C) The nutrients are a part of the fertilizers that are often washed away into ponds. D) The nutrients are formed by the decomposition of organic wastes dumped into fresh water.

The algal blooms can be defined as the rapid growth of the algae in the water bodies. These algal blooms are a result of the excess amounts of nutrients, such as phosphorus, in the water. These excess nutrients are released in the fresh water bodies as a result of the fertilizers that are washed away from the agricultural fields nearby. The fertilizers are rich in nutrients such as phosphorus to help the plant to grow. When they get washed into the water bodies, they promote the growth of the algae leading to algal bloom.

Hence, the correct answer is 'Option C - The nutrients are a part of the fertilizers that are often washed away into ponds'.

QUESTION POSTED AT 01/04/2020 - 01:33 PM

Zebra mussels are native to Poland and the Soviet Union. They were probably transported to the United States via trans-oceanic vessels. With no natural predators in the United States, zebra mussels A) will eventually die out due to lack of food supplies. B) caused a huge decline in native clam and mussel populations. C) compete unsuccessfully with native mussels and quickly die. D) successfully share the niche with native mussels and clams.

Correct answer: B). Caused a huge decline in native clam and mussel populations.  

The Zebra mussels are the water animals that are D- shell, which is made up of hinged valves that are joined together by a ligament. The main problem with them is that they filter water in order to eat the plankton. As they eat the plankton, it creates a competition between them and fish for food.

They are known to kill mussels population by attaching to their shells, they also out compete for food native mussels.

Hence, the correct answer would be option B.

Algal blooms occur due to the presence of an excess amount of nutrients, like phosphorus, in fresh water. How does excess phosphorus get into fresh water? A) The nutrients are added to the water by fishermen to feed the fish. Eliminate B) The nutrients leak into fresh water from oil refineries in the vicinity. C) The nutrients are a part of the fertilizers that are often washed away into ponds. D) The nutrients are formed by the decomposition of organic wastes dumped into fresh water.

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

The nutrients that is carried away by the water from the agricultural wastes are part of the fertilizer that is put on to increase the growth of the plants.

The nutrients from the fertilizer is carried away by the water that passed from the field to the nearby freshwater source.

The water carries phosphorus which increases the growth of the algal bloom in water. The algae uses all the oxygen from the water and makes the water deficient of oxygen.

Hence, the correct answer is option C

QUESTION POSTED AT 01/04/2020 - 01:28 PM

Discuss the process of the chloride shift in both the respiratory and the digestive systems.

  Carbon dioxide is generated in tissues as a byproduct of normal metabolism. It dissolves in blood plasma to form carbonic acid (H2CO3); red blood cell (RBC) carbonic anhydrase catalyzes this reaction. Carbonic acid then spontaneously dissociates to form bicarbonate (HCO3−) and a hydrogen ion (H+). In response to the decrease in intracellular pCO2, more CO2 passively diffuses into the cell.

Cell membranes are generally impermeable to charged ions (i.e. H+, HCO3− ) but RBCs are able to exchange bicarbonate for chloride using the anion exchanger protein Band 3. Thus, the rise in intracellular bicarbonate leads to bicarbonate export and chloride intake. The term "chloride shift" refers to this exchange. Consequently, chloride concentration is lower in systemic venous blood than in systemic arterial blood: high venous pCO2 leads to bicarbonate production in RBCs, which then leaves the RBC in exchange for chloride coming in.[2]

Describe the function of each organelle. 1- Vacuoles 2- Lysosomes 3- Mitochondrion 4- Cell membrane

Answer:

vacuoles -

Vacuoles are membrane-bound sacs within the cytoplasm of a cell that function in several different ways. In mature plant cells, vacuoles tend to be very large and are extremely important in providing structural support, as well as serving functions such as storage, waste disposal, protection, and growth.

Lysosomes

One of the key organelles involved in digestion and waste removal is the lysosome. Lysosomes are organelles that contain digestive enzymes. They digest excess or worn out organelles, food particles, and engulfed viruses or bacteria. Lysosomes are like the stomach of the cell.

Mitochondrion

Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of the cell. They are organelles that act like a digestive system which takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy rich molecules for the cell. The biochemical processes of the cell are known as cellular respiration.Cell membrane
