What is true of saturated fatty acids?

QUESTION POSTED AT 06/12/2019 - 12:03 PM

Answered by admin AT 06/12/2019 - 12:03 PM

Saturated fatty acids are the type of fatty acids where all of them have single bonds. Their name comes from the fact that usually the second bond they have will be broken up and because of this each half of the bond can be saturated (attached to) with a hydrogen atom that can be available in near vicinity. It is worth noting that thhe fatty acids of fish and plants are mostly unsaturated (either mono-unsaturated or poly-unsaturated) while the fatty acids of animals are mostly saturated.

Which of the following statements about agricultural societies is true? a. Agricultural societies did not pollute the environment. b. Agricultural societies impacted the environment less than hunter-gatherer societies. c. Agricultural societies had a higher population than hunter-gatherer societies. d. Agricultural societies impacted the environment more than industrial societies.

The correct answer is option C. Agricultural societies had a higher population than hunter-gatherer societies.

The hunting is not a very popular profession now-a-days, but the agriculture is very common and there are many people, who are involved in the profession of the agricultural production. So, the agricultural societies have a much higher population as compared to the that of the hunter-gather societies. Also, the hunting is banned for many animals and cannot produce enough money to support the basic livelihood.

Producers are the most important biotic factor in an ecosystem. a. True b. False

Answer;

The above statement is True.

Explanation;

-Biotic factors are the living components of an ecosystem and are sorted into three groups: producers or autotrophs, consumers or heterotrophs, and decomposers or detritivores.

-Producers are living things within an ecosystem that make life possible for all other organisms. This is because they produce something very important. They are important parts of an ecosystem. Producers are the green plants. They make their own food. Consumers on the other hand are animals and they get their energy from the producers or from organisms that eat producers.

Hormones are chemicals secreted and regulated by the endocrine system. TRUE or FALSE.

Hormones are chemicals secreted and regulated by the endocrine system this statement is true.

Further Explanation:

The different glands altogether make up the endocrine system. They secrete chemical substances called hormones. these hormones control the functioning and metabolism of organs and cell of a body. These hormones also control the development of secondary organs and growth of an individual. They secrete hormone into the bloodstream which reaches the target site. To coordinate the function of the body they transfer the information from one cell to another cell. In plants mainly endocrine system is present to transfer the the  from one cell to another cell.

The endocrine system includes several glands:

  • Hypothalamus gland
  • Pituitary gland
  • Thyroid gland
  • Parathyroid gland
  • Adrenals gland
  • Pineal gland

The pancreas and reproductive organs are also a part of endocrine system. They secrete hormone-like insulin, testosterone, and estrogen. The endocrine system is regulated by the feedback mechanism. Hormone levels can be affected by fluid, stress and presence of hormone already in blood.

Which of the following accurately describes acids and bases in regard to ionization? A. When free hydrogen ions and free hydroxyl ions are removed from solutions of acids and bases, the acidic and basic properties disappear. B. Weak acids dissociate to a great degree. C. Weak bases dissociate only to a slight degree to produce free hydrogen ions. D. When an acid and a base are mixed together in the proper proportions, two hydroxyl ions will unite.

The correct answer is A. When free hydrogen ions and free hydroxyl ions are removed from solutions of acids and bases, the acidic and basic properties disappear.

The strength of the acid or base depends upon its degree of ionization.  Since different acids and different bases dissociate or ionize to different extent in water so their degree of ionization is also different. Strong acids and strong bases ionize in water completely while the weaker acids or bases ionize partially. Ionization of the weak acids in water are in equilibrium. The degree of ionization is the ratio of the number of ionized molecules to the number of molecules which are dissolved in water. In case of acids the ionized molecules are hydrogen ions and in case of bases hydroxyl ions.

Which of the following statements is true?Oysters and clams belong to the Crustacea class.All vertebrates belong to the Chordata phylum.Insects and arachnids go through metamorphosis.Both animals and plants have nervous systems.-----CHOOSE ALL THE APPLAYSponges are different from other animals in that they:move only as adultsmove only as juvenilesare completely sessileexhibit no bi-lateral symmetrypossess specialized tissuepossess uniform tissue------Which of the following statements is true?There are more species of vertebrates than invertebrates.The largest phylum in the Animalia kingdom is Arthropoda.Sponges are not truly animals because they have cell walls.All animals in the Chordata phylum are vertebrates.------AND THE LAST QUESTION IS :Match each animal with the correct classification.IT HAS A PICTUER DOWN THERE..

Answer:

1. B

2. C and D

3. B

Explanation:

1. Answer is B: All vertebrates belong to the Chordata phylum. Phylum chordata is divided into three sub-phylums:

a. Urochordata

b. Cephalochordata

c. Vertebrate/Craniata.

Thus we can say that all vertebrates are chordates but all chordates are not vertebrates.

2. Answer is C and D: Sponges belong to the phylum porifera. They are aquatic, mostly marine. They exhibit cellular level of organization with no tissue like arrangements. Sponges are sessile which means they remain attached to underwater objects/substratum. They are asymmetric i.e. any plane passing through the center of the body does not divide it into equal halves.

3. Answer is B: There are more species of invertebrates and the largest phylum is an invertebrate phylum called Arthropoda.

Animals are characterized by the presence of sensory or nervous system but sponges is the only phylum with no specialized nerve cell.

4. Eagles belong to class aves of phylum chordata.

Lady bug belong to class insecta of phylum arthropoda.

Scorpion belong to the class arachnida of phylum arthropoda.

Lobster belong to class crustacea of phylum arthropoda.

Snail belong to class gastropoda of phylum mollusca.
