Suppose a scientists found a new metal like substance in the dessert. He determined its mass to be 20 grams. The volume was determined by water displacement to be 5 cm3. What is the density of the substance? Will it sink or float in liquid water (1g/cm3)?

How can reduced precipitation lead to limited water availability


        Let's think in Brazil as an example to answer this question, and the Amazon forest.


        The amazon forest is one of the biggest forests of the whole world, being responsible for a lot of the water distribution there is in Brazil due to a process called flying river. The water vapor that the trees in amazon produce is very high, we can check on that by seeing how the weather in this region works, it rains almost all the time, and then, this vapor water spreads across all the country and other countries too. If there's a problem in amazon such as fires and deforestation, the amount of water that is going to other regions of the country is less than before, and in that way, the water availability will not be enough anymore.

Consider this northern site of primary succession following the retreat of a glacier. As we move from left to right, describe some improvements in the abiotic factors that support plant growth. A) change in climate over time B) less competition for water resources due to biodiversity C) improved soil quality: increased humus and water retention D) increased population density resulting in decreased pathogens

Answer: C. improved soil quality: increased humus and water retention.


An ecological succession brings change in the type of living species residing in an ecosystem with respect to changes that occur in the abiotic (non-living factors) with respect to time.

A region affected by a retreating glacier will not be suitable for the growth of living species. The soil may be lacking minerals and will be in the permafrost condition. So for the initiation of succession the improvement in soil an important abiotic factor is required. The improved soil quality will allow the accumulation of organic and inorganic minerals by physical and biological processes. This will help in formation of humus and water retention.

A scientist wrote an article about a drug that he believes reduces the effects of viral infections. Which of these MOST LIKELY needs to be done by a scientific committee before the drug is made available to the general public? A) An experiment related to the drug but not about viral infections B) A review of the scientist’s credentials and a review of the article C) An experiment not related to the drug but about viral infections in general D) An experiment related to the drug and a review of the article written by the scientist


The answer is d)An experiment related to the drug and a review of the article written by the scientist


A scientific committee will verify that the medication has been evaluated in its entirety before placing it at the disposal of the general public, and for this it should be verified that said medication is supported through scientific experimentation, which will help establish the nature between independent variables and dependents. In a controlled study of a drug, scientists conduct two or more experiments simultaneously: a treatment group, where the effect of manipulation on a dependent variable is analyzed, and a control group, in which the same conditions are used, to treatment exception.

In a paragraph address these following questions: • How does an underwater earthquake cause a tsunami? • Why do some earthquakes cause more damage than others? the paragraph needs to also include the following things: • discuss how the different types of waves are formed and describe how the waves travel • explain how scientists use waves to track and analyze earthquakes • cover recent events involving earthquakes and/or tsunamis that illustrate the points made in your explanation

What is an Earthquake

Earthquakes are vibrations in the earth's crust They occur along all plate boundaries but are more destructive usually at destructive plate boundaries

How are they measured

The magnitude or size of an earthquake can be measured by an instrument called a seisometer and are shown on a seismograph. The earthquakes are measured on the Richter scale from a value of 1 to 10. Each level of magnitude is 10 times more powerful than the previous. Therefore a level 7 is 100 time more powerful than a level 5.

Why do some earthquakes cause more damage than others?

Some earthquakes take place in rural areas where few people live and little is damaged

If they occur near large urban areas with many people, transport services, large buildings and services such as gas and electricity - there can be a great amount of deaths and damage

In Poor countries - LEDC's they have poorly built buildings, few emergency facilities, and the equipment to help rescue people - a good term to use is that they have a poor infrastructure.

In rich countries - MEDC's such as the USA they prepare for an earthquake with drills and have a great deal of trained emergency personnel and equipment to go to help the injured. They also try to build to withstand earthquake damage - ie The Transamerica building

The time of day can be important - If the earthquake hits when it is the rush hour or when there is a large number of people located in a certain area - this can cause a great loss of life

Obviously if they occur near to coasts then Tsunamis can cause a great deal of damage and deaths such as the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami

Which of the following are not characteristics of the cell wall? Select all that apply. cellulose and chitin hydrophillic and hydrophobic structures found in cells of fungi and algae double-layered membrane

Answer: hydrophobic and hydrophilic structures found in cells of fungi and algea

double-layered membrane

A cell wall is a a semi-permeable protective layer found in some cell types. This covers the cell membrane in plants cells, fungi, bacteria. Animal cells do not possess cell wall. The cell wall performs functions like protection, provides structural stability to a cell and support. Cell wall composition varies depending upon the type of organism. In plants the cell wall is made up of fibers of carbohydrate polymer called as cellulose. In bacteria cell walls are made up of peptidoglycan. In fungi cell wall is made up of chitin. Hydrophillic and hydrophobic structures found in cells of fungi and algae and double- layered membrane are features of cell membrane not of cell wall.

Match each step in the conversion of biomass into electricity with the appropriate number. For example, Step 1 represents the first step. 1. Step 1 steam turns a turbine 2. Step 2 water boils into steam 3. Step 3 turbine powers a generator 4. Step 4 biomass is burned 5. Step 5 generator produces electricity


The transformation of biomass into electricity can take place via many methods. However, the most common one is the direct combustion of biomass substance like woody substances or agricultural waste. The other method, which helps in converting biomass to electricity is gasification of biomass. Let us consider the steps of biomass combustion:  

Step 1: The burning of biomass.  

Step 2: The generation of steam takes place due to the boiling of water.  

Step 3: The generated steam turns a turbine.  

Step 4: The generator is powered with the help of a turbine.  

Step 5: Electricity gets generated with the help of a generator.
