Suppose you are able to manipulate a plants access to components in the photosynthesis equation. drag each label to the appropriate bin to predict how that action will affect plant growth. for each increase or decrease, assume that every other component of the photosynthesis equation is unlimited.

We know that the word equation for the reaction taking place during photosynthesis is: carbon dioxide + water + sunlight → glucose + oxygen Therefore, the more the reactants are provided, the more the plant will grow. The lesser the reactants, the lesser the growth. Providing products will not alter the …

SPENT 50 POINTS ON THIS QUESTION PLEASE HELP In the table, x represents minutes, and y represents the altitude of an airplane. Table x y 15 22,500 20 20,000 25 17,500 30 15,000 Which statement is correct about the slope of the linear function that the table represents? a.The slope is positive because as the minutes decrease, the altitude increases. b.The slope is positive because as the minutes increase, the altitude increases. c.The slope is negative because as the minutes decrease, the altitude decreases. d.The slope is negative because as the minutes increase, the altitude decreases.

Slope=changey/changexwell, the slope will be positive when the minutes (x) are increasing and the altitude (y) is also increasingthe slope will be negative when the minutes (x) are increasing and the altitude (y) is decreasing we see that x increaseand y decreasesso the slope is negative because as minutes incrases, …

The rate constant for the second-order reaction 2no2(g) ? 2no(g) o2(g) is 0.540/(m · s) at 300°c. how long (in seconds) would it take for the concentration of no2 to decrease from 0.500 m to 0.250 m

Answer: The coefficient of CO₂ is 5. Explanation:     Balancing the reaction: ___C₅H₁₂ + ___O₂ → ___CO₂ + ___H₂O There are 5 C in the left side, so we put 5 on the right side: ___C₅H₁₂ + ___O₂ →  5CO₂ + ___H₂O There are 12 H in the left …

If the rate-determining step limits the speed of a reaction, which statement is correct? Even if one or more fast steps occur in a reaction, the overall reaction cannot proceed any faster than the slowest step. If the first step is slow and the second step is fast, then the second step should determine the rate of the overall reaction. Increasing the concentration of a molecule that occurs in a fast step after a slow step will increase the overall rate of the reaction. In a unimolecular reaction where A decomposes to B and C, the rate of the reaction will decrease if the concentration of A is increased.

A positive cahnge of enthalpy, ΔH rxn = + 55 kJ/mol, for the forward reaction means that the reaction is endothermic, i.e. the reactants absorb energy and the products are higher in energy. Activation energy is the difference in the energy level of the reactants and the peak in the …

Which of the following statements about the effects of pollution on marine ecosystems is true? a. Burning fossil fuels causes a direct increase in the temperatures of ocean water. b. Burning fossil fuels causes a decrease in the pH of ocean water making it more acidic. c. Pollution in marine ecosystems causes a decrease in the formation of algal blooms. d. Addition of warm water has no effect on marine ecosystems

The equation for how temperature changes the resistance R is:  R=R₀(1+α(T-T₀)), where R₀ is the resistance at T₀=20°C, T is the temperature for which we want to calculate the resistance and α is the temperature coefficient for resistance.  The resistance of the copper wire increases by 18% or by 0.18, so the …
