In which calculation would the use of the mass-energy equivalence principle be needed? A. energy obtained from the burning of fossil fuels B. energy given off by a current flowing through a wire C. energy created by the conversion of mass of a uranium sample D. mass of coal burned in order to provide the energy needed for a large city

In evolutionary biology, mimicry is a similarity of one organism, usually an animal, to another that has evolved because the resemblance is selectively favoured by the behaviour of a shared signal receiver that can respond to both.[1] Mimicry may evolve between different species, or between individuals of the same species. Often, mimicry evolves to …

Compare the food energy in calories from burning the chip and the saltine. How can you explain this differences in terms of chemical composition? A) The chip contains more lipids than the saltine. B) The saltine is a carbohydrate; the chip is a lipid. C) The saltine has less protein content than the chip. D) The chip is composed of starch; the saltine of simple sugars.

17. The SI unit for force is N. 18. When an Unbalanced force acts upon and object, the object will change speed and/or direction of motion. 19. Average speed is the speed averaged over a span of time. Instantaneous speed would be the speed at any given instance during that …

There is a public debate between the three candidates for the U.S. Senate. During the debate, the topics of oil and energy are addressed. Each candidate expressed their view on the issue: Edgar Eisenhower: “We need to cut our dependence on foreign oil. Instead, let’s use the natural world around us. Think about the sun, wind, water, the heat of the earth, and the crops in our fields. These will make for affordable energy in the 21st century. We should fund research in those areas. Let us also increase tax credits for private investment in clean, renewable sources of energy.” Rebecca Roosevelt: “We need to cut our dependence on foreign oil and develop a national energy strategy. We should provide tax incentives for producing energy in the U.S. Let’s increase U.S. supplies of coal, oil, and natural gas. We should promote environmentally responsible exploration and development of oil and gas reserves. That includes federal land like Alaska’s National Wildlife Refuge. Let’s also advance clean coal technology.” Terrance Taft: “Looking at our energy supply is one thing—how we’re using it is another. We can drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars. We can invest in more efficient technology for our homes and businesses. These things add up and make a big difference. In fact, in several new buildings associated with Taft Inc., we address our energy needs with locally produced renewable energy. That wouldn’t be possible if we were using outdated, energy guzzling technology.” Often politicians will agree that something is a priority, but have very different recommendations on how to best address it. What would be the best example of this from the previous section? 1. Both Terrance Taft and Edgar Eisenhower agree that inefficiency is bad, but disagree on how to make things more efficient. 2. Both Rebecca Roosevelt and Edgar Eisenhower agree that we need to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, but disagree on the best way of doing so. 3. Both Terrance Taft and Rebecca Roosevelt agree that alternative energy is important, but disagree about which form would be the best to invest in. 4. Both Rebecca Roosevelt and Terrance Taft agree that developing alternative energy sources is important, but differ on the best way of doing so.

Answer: The American participation in the Vietnam War was very different from its involvement in the Bay of Pigs Invasion. In the Vietnam War, the United States carried out direct participation, with first-hand military planning and execution and large-scale attacks. Some 60,000 Americans died in the conflict, of about one …

If all the genes of E. coli were active at once, what would result? 1. Conversation of energy and resources 2. Underproduction of enzymes 3. Cellular dysfunction 4. Increased rate of cell reproduction

Answer: The correct answer is – D) giraffes having increasingly longer necks over time. Natural selection is an evolutionary mechanism that was proposed by Darwin. According to this mechanism, organisms that are better capable of adapting to their changing environmental conditions, survive and increase their number through reproduction whereas other …

A push or pull that gives energy to an ob- ject, causing that object to start moving, stop moving, or change its motion is 1. friction. 2. pressure. 3. inertia. 4. a force. …?

This is a very interesting problem … mainly because it’s different from the usual questions in the Physics neighborhood. I can discuss it with you, but maybe not quite give you a final answer with the information you’ve given in the question. I agree with all of your calculations so …

Why are plants found at the beginning of a food web? A.All consumers eat plants. B.Plants convert the Sun’s energy into chemical energy. C.There are more plants than consumers. D.There are fewer plants than consumers. E.Decomposers thrive on plants.

A food web (or food cycle) is the natural interconnection of food chains and a graphical representation (usually an image) of what-eats-what in an ecological community. Another name for food web is a consumer-resource system. Ecologists can broadly lump all life forms into one of two categories called trophic levels: …

An iron fence is left on painted and it reacts with the oxygen in the air form forming rust. the formation of the rest is an oxidation-reduction reaction but it is also an example of a _____ reaction (1 point)8. cooking requires continuous addition of energy to the chemical reactions the are taking place the chemical reaction involved in cooking can be described as______? (1 point)9. measuring how quickly a reactanat disappears in one way to measure the ______of the reaction

Answer: The correct answer is option(A). Explanation: An iron atom emits particles when it is struck by light.This phenomena is called as Photoelectric effect. Photoelectric effect is defined as when photons (particles of light) falls on the metallic surface, electrons from the surface are ejected out and these ejected out …
