In the story “To Build a Fire,” what information did the man ignore? Even though the creeks freeze solid, liquid water exists near springs. Always make camp and build a fire while there is still daylight. Always take along survival gear and wear protective clothing. No one must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty degrees below zero.

No one must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty degrees below zero. I would say this is the main lesson to learn about this Jack London story which shows that nature can be cruel and unforgiving and at 50 degrees below zero it is nothing to fool with. If there are two people, one can help the other and warn say of snow which may fall down and douse the fire and also both can have matches to start a fire and they can discuss the best course of action in any situation which presents itself such as trusting the ice not to break over a creek for example.

Suppose people like potatoes and rice equally well. Potatoes are sold in bags and rice is sold in boxes. If a freeze destroys the potato crop, which of the following statements is true? The quantity demanded of bags will increase. The quantity demanded of boxes will increase. The demand for bags will increase. The demand for boxes will decrease. The demand for boxes will increase.

Hey there!

For your first question, consider the difference between emergency care and elective surgery. Elective surgery is planned out in advance and is considered a luxury to those who can pay for it only. In some situations, people can opt out of treating something with surgery, especially if it’s expensive, and may try other methods of treating what they have if other options exist. Also, as the price of a surgery procedure gets higher, less people will be able to pay for it, decreasing the demand. On the contrary, when it’s an emergency, people will often value the life of the urgent patient above all else, including money. Therefore, it can be assumed that urgent care will always be demanded regardless of its price fluctuation. 

For your second question, consider the general consensus of people who purchase health care (in general). These people likely think about the possibility of falling ill and needing the health care in the first place. These people also likely think of all that could happen on vacation, especially to foreign countries where immunities and illnesses could be very different, and would like to minimize the possibility of getting ill as much as possible. So, it would make sense that someone who buys more health care would spend less on vacationing and vice versa. 

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

During winters freezing temperatures, some plants can remove water from their cells to reduce the amount of water that will freeze inside them. Why would plants need to do this? A. The frozen water constricts organelles and causes plant cells to shrink. B. As the water contracts during freezing, the cells would pull away from each other, causing damage. C. Less water in the cells means the cells are smaller and need to do less work. D. The expansion of excess water as it turns to ice inside the cells would break the cells apart.

Correct answer: C). Genetically different haploid cells

Meiosis is a type of cell division in which four haploid cells are produced, which are genetically different from the parent. It reduces the chromosome number exactly half as contained in the parent. That is why it is called as a reductional division.

In the first round of meiosis I homologous pairs of chromosome separate and the sister chromatids separate during meiosis II.

If u freeze a substance wat happens to the mass

[ad_1]

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.
