As we already know the biosphere are all living things which include animals and plants. The Geosphere is all the solid earth parts like rocks, mountains, soils and landforms. The atmosphere are all the gases that surround our planet. The way the biosphere facilitates movement of water from the geosphere to the atmosphere is evaporation. The water evaporates from inside the soils through the vegetation and from the revers, lakes and oceans. This evaporated water accumulates as water vapor in the atmosphere and then comes back to the geosphere and biosphere.

Answer: B) High heat of vaporization.

I hope it helps, Regards.

Which of the following questions would best help you evaluate claims about the healing properties of an expensive herbal remedy?

Hello. This question is incomplete. The complete question is:

"Which of the following questions would best help you evaluate claims about the healing properties of an expensive herbal remedy?

1. Has the claim been published in more than one periodical?  2.Has the claim been discussed on the news or other reliable media sources? 3. Has the claim been tested numerous times by more than one scientist?  4. Has the claim been promoted by more than one expert witness? "

Answer:

"Has the claim been tested numerous times by more than one scientist?"

Explanation:

When several scientists repeatedly test the same claim, the conclusion about a particular experiment is more accurate. This is because each scientist will have his own way of testing a particular situation and when the result of these scientists proves the revaricade of an information means that the information is reliable. The opposite also happens, that is, when scientists deny the truth of an information, it means that the information is not reliable.

An example of this can be seen in the question above. This is because you could use the question "Has the claim been tested numerous times by more than one scientist?" to evaluate claims about the healing properties of an expensive herbal remedy.

Explain why convection happens more effciently in water or air than it does in rock

First of all, convection is the transfer of energy due to the movement of matter. 
Convection occurs more efficiently in water or air because particles in water and air move more freely than in rock. The more moving particles there are, the more energy transfer occurs.

What is the difference between an atom of silver and anatom of gold? a. one is new and the other is old. b. their net electrical charges are different. c. their atomic masses are different. d. more people would rather have one gold atom than a lot of gold.

The right answer is C. I think, a. and d. are obviously not serious. B is not true, because Ag and Au are in the same group in the periodic table and therefore have the same number of electrons in the last level. So, they form ions with the same charge. C is true beacause Ag and Au have different numbers in the periodic table and different amount of protons and neutrons in their nucleuses.

Which of the following is not an example of active transport? i. facilitated diffusion ii. osmosis iii. diffusion

Answer:

facilitated diffusion (Ans. I)

Explanation:

Active transport: It is the type of transport where solute can move uphill from the region of lower concentration to higher concentration and it requires some form of chemical energy.

Osmosis and Diffusion are types of active transport.

Passive transport: Facilitated diffusion is a type of passive transport where solute can move downhill from the region of higher concentration to lower concentration and does not require any energy.

What would happen if solid water were denser than liquid water? A. Plants would wilt. B. Solid water would float on the surface of bodies of water. C. Bodies of water would freeze from the bottom up. D. Water would escape from the atmosphere.

Answer: C. Bodies of water would freeze from the bottom up.

Explanation:

The water in the form of ice exhibit low density as compared to the water in the liquid form. Hence, the ice will float over the surface of water if ice is kept in water.

But according to the given condition, the solid water that is actually the ice will be denser than the liquid water. Thus the solid water will sink at the bottom of the liquid water. As a consequence the bodies of water would freeze from the bottom.

Which of the following explains how polar molecules form? A. Electrons are more attracted to one of the atoms involved in a bond. B. The two atoms in a bond share electrons equally. C. One atom transfers its electrons to another atom. D. Protons are more attracted to one of the atoms involved in a bond.

The answer is A. It'ss based on electronegativity (not sure if this is covered before A level) but essentially in the covalent bond, the bonding electron pairs are more attracted towards one of the atoms than the other. This creates a slight difference in charge.
So for instance in water, the oxygen is greedy and pulls the bonding electron pair away from hydrogen, closer to itself. This gives the oxygen molecule a slightly negative charge and the hydrogens a slight positive charge.

A green plant absorbs a toxic substance that completely blocks the production of ATP. How would this most likely affect the dark reactions? A - The dark reactions would stop happening. B - The dark reactions would produce more NADPH C - The dark reactions would continue to produce oxygen D - The dark reactions would produce more carbon dioxide

Answer:

The most appropriate answer would be  A - The dark reactions would stop happening.

Light-independent or dark reaction or Calvin cycle is a part of photosynthesis in which products of light-dependent reaction (ATP and NADPH) are used to fix carbon from carbon dioxide into glucose.

It takes around 9 molecules of ATP and 6 molecules of NADPH in order to produce 1 molecule of glucose.

So, if ATP production would be stopped in a plant then dark reaction would also stop happening.

Black and white coloration in cows is dominant to brown and white. Black and white cows were crossed over several years and the following offspring were produced: 8 black and white and 3 brown and white. What is the MOST probable genotype of each parent? A) BB X BB B) BB x bb C) Bb x Bb D) Bb x bb

The answer is C) Bb x Bb

B - the allele for black and white coloration
b - the allele for brown and white coloration

There are in total 11 offspring (8 black and white and 3 brown and white),
In a monohybrid cross when both parents are heterozygous (Bb), the phenotype ratio is 3:1. We have ratio 8:3.

The ideal ratio would be 9:3 because it is the same as 3:1.
Therefore, the parents Bb and Bb will have 
8 black and white and 3 brown and white with the ration 8:3 ≈ 9:3 = 3:1
