How did advancements in physics, chemistry, and astronomy help cause the Enlightenment? Enlightenment thinkers applied the scientific method to social problems. Enlightenment philosophers began their careers as natural scientists. Knowledge of physics and chemistry enabled advances in weaponry and machinery. The study of science inspired great Enlightenment poets to write about nature.

[ad_1]

The Enlightenment is known by that name because people considered the scientific progress brought a “new light” that could replace religion and leave the Middle Age behind. Also, different discoveries and studies in physics, chemistry, and astronomy established the scientific method as a reliable way to produce knowledge. Therefore, Enlightenment thinkers applied the scientific method to social problems, and since then, multiple social sciences like sociology or anthropology have adopted this method until the present day.

The correct answer is – Andes Mountains.

The Andes Mountain Range is a result of a oceanic-continental convergence. This mountain range stretches alongside the western coast of the South American continent, in close proximity of the convergent boundary between the South American tectonic plate, which is continental one, and the Nazca tectonic plate, which is oceanic one.

The Nazca plate is subducting beneath the South American plate, and it managed to lift up the land in close proximity to the boundary. As the land was lifting up more and more, over time a mountain range was formed, the biggest and dominant one in South America, the Andean Mountain Range.

Which excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis” most foreshadows that the narrator will feel regret for something he has done to Doodle? But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did, so I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp. There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle. Once I had succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk, I began to believe in my own infallibility and I prepared a terrific development program for him, unknown to Mama and Daddy, of course.

Answer:

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

Answer:

1) Water has very high specific heat.

2) It expands when it freezes

3) ability to dissolve in ionic substances

4) Water molecules at the surface experience fewer hydrogen bonds than water molecules within the liquid.

Explanation:

1) Water molecules due to their high specific heat , undergo relatively less increase in temperature after absorbing heat. So they prevent their adjoining area to experience sharp increase in temperature.

2) Water is an example which expands on freezing. In it , large spaces are left between molecules when it cools. It happens because hydrogen bonds prevent any two molecules to come very close thereby  creating gaps. This gap is filled up when ice melts , which results in overall reduction in volume of water.

3) Uneven distribution of charge results in water molecules becoming polar in nature . A polar substance  can be dissolved in polar solvents only.

4) It is due to property of surface tension. Property  of surface tension results due to molecules of water near the surface experiencing a  net downward  force due to hydrogen bonds . It is due to fewer hydrogen bonds made by them.

Answer:

A. y=sec x

D. y= csc x

Step-by-step explanation:

We have that,

Range of the functions is the set of all real numbers greater than or equal to 1 or less than or equal to -1.

As, we know that,

Range of the functions, y = tanx and y = cotx is (-infty,infty) i.e. the set of all real numbers.

So, options B and C are discarded.

Since, csc x=frac{1}{sin x} and sec x=frac{1}{cos x}.

Thus, their range will be greater than the the range of y = sinx and y = cosx.

Now, as it is known that the range of the functions  y = sinx and y = cosx is [-1,1].

Then, the range of y=sec x and y= csc x is the set of all real numbers greater than or equal to 1 or less than or equal to -1.

Hence, options A and D are correct.

Correct answer:

Joseph Stalin

You may have meant “for,” but then whoever wrote the question made a typo mistake in the question.  The only way the question makes sense is if it would read:  

  • I began the Cold War in Europe by creating the Communist Bloc. I also stole atomic secrets from the United States and built my own bomb, thus escalating tension in the early Cold War.

The only possible answer is Josef Stalin.

Josef Stalin led the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s (after the death of Lenin) until 1953.

Under Stalin’s leadership, the Soviet Union had conducted espionage concerning the United States “Manhattan Project,” which was the US government’s development of atomic bombs during World War II.  The US tested its first atomic bomb in July, 1945, and then used two such bombs to force Japan to surrender in August, 1945.

By 1949, the the Soviet Union had developed and tested its own atomic bomb.  From that point on, an arms race truly began between the two superpowers.

Read the excerpt from “The Most Dangerous Game.” He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face and the salt water in his open mouth made him gag and strangle. Desperately he struck out with strong strokes after the receding lights of the yacht, but he stopped before he had swum fifty feet. A certain cool-headedness had come to him; it was not the first time he had been in a tight place. There was a chance that his cries could be heard by someone aboard the yacht, but that chance was slender, and grew more slender as the yacht raced on. He wrestled himself out of his clothes, and shouted with all his power. The lights of the yacht became faint and ever-vanishing fireflies; then they were blotted out entirely by the night. Rainsford remembered the shots. They had come from the right, and doggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength. For a seemingly endless time he fought the sea. He began to count his strokes; he could do possibly a hundred more and then— What details from the narration show that Rainsford is a rational individual who does well in moments of danger? Check all that apply. 1) He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out 2) Desperately he struck out with strong strokes after the receding lights of the yacht 3) A certain cool-headedness had come to him; 4) There was a chance that his cries could be heard by someone aboard the yacht 5)[D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength.

C) A certain cool-headedness had come to him

E) [D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength

In the second stanza the speaker uses words like “doggedly, slow, deliberate and conserving his strength.” In all of these instances Rainsford was in danger,; however, he was able to keep calm and think clearly about what he should do next.

The tropical climates are climates where it is summer throughout the whole year. The temperature is high and they receive large amounts of precipitation. While some receive precipitation throughout the whole year, usually in the afternoon hours, some have it seasonally, where they experience a wet season and a dry season, which are the only two seasons that appear in certain tropical climates.
