## 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 rate of photosynthesis. The factors may be grouped as:

Increase plant growth:
-increase sunlight
-increase carbon dioxide
-increase water

No effect on plant growth:
-increase glucose
-increase oxygen
-decrease glucose
-decrease oxygen

Decrease plant growth:
-decrease water
-decrease sunlight
-decrease carbon dioxide

## Which technology is used on farms to increase food production for the growing human population

Genetic engineering.

Explanation:

Genetic engineering is a technology that involves recombinant DNA or RNA, through the genetic code, widely used by industrial agriculture. Through technology, the DNA of many plants has been modified so that crops are better protected against disease and pests, increase their resistance to unfavorable environmental conditions (such as drought and frost) and increase their reproductive rate. This has made crops produce more, the result of this is increased food production for the growing human population.

## Why might a government entity choose to offer some information and services online as in e-government A. Prevent in person participation in government B. To increase public interest in government C. To decrease the number of paid staff D. To Improve access to more of its citizens

My answer would be D, here is why:

At the dawn of the information age, it became possible for American and other societies to be able to transfer information all over the world with just one click, this has increased laziness in our society dramatically. People these days are more likely not to go to a government office, then to just type a few characters. Going online helps government sectors to quickly spread the information they need to and make it “easier” for our citizens to file their paperwork.

## Using carbo-loading to increase the store of glycogen seems to benefit only those athletes who engage in aerobic activities that are

Carbo-loading is good for athletes that do aerobic activities that are NOT IMMEDIATE.
———-Explanation———–
This is because carbohydrates are polysaccharides, and they take longer to break down and turn into energy.  That’s why it is better to eat carbs the night before a big race/game/meet/regatta/competition, because then you get the benefits f the energy the following.  An example of this would be a runner.  The athlete may eat pizza Friday night for a Saturday track meet.  They wouldn’t feel energized Friday night, but the following day because their body had time to break down the carbs.  If you need quick energy(i.e. a couple hours before a race, then you should eat monosaccharides, such as a banana or an apple.  This is because monosaccharides take less time to break down, and therefore give you a quicker burst of energy.

## 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/changex
well, the slope will be positive when the minutes (x) are increasing and the altitude (y) is also increasing
the slope will be negative when the minutes (x) are increasing and the altitude (y) is decreasing

we see that x increase
and y decreases
so the slope is negative because as minutes incrases, altitude decreases

## What is an example of how you can be proactive about your personal health and wellness? Know your family health history and use reliable resources to research any family illnesses, because this will help you understand risks and available treatments Schedule regular doctor appointments, because getting checked by the doctor ensures that you will not get sick or contract communicable diseases Get extra sleep on days you don’t exercise, because this will help you keep your body composition in a healthy range and avoid changes in weight Use vitamins and performance-enhancing supplements, because they increase energy levels and help build muscles to keep your body physically fit Question 4(Multiple Choice Worth 1 points)

Your answer is: Know your family health history and use reliable resources to research any family.illnesses because this will help you understand risks and available treatments. By process of deduction, doctor’s appointments cannot perfectly ensure a lack of sickness, increasing sleep has studies that suggest it actually increases chances of weight gain, and performance-enhancing supplements are actually harmful if you don’t need them. Good Luck!

## Antidepressant drugs have been designed to increase levels of serotonin and ______. question 41 options:

Antidepressant drugs have been designed to increase levels of serotonin and norepinephrine. Serotonin is a hormone that is responsible for the regulation of our mood , anxiety and happiness. Norepinephrine is also a hormone that is secreted as a response to stress. It is deemed to be similar with the hormone adrenaline. Low levels of these hormones are associated with depression. Antidepressant drugs works in increasing the levels of these hormones to cure or treat depression. However, these drugs do not necessarily cure depression, they are only effective at improving the mood and relieving some of the symptoms along with it.

## Jared is a vegan (total vegetarian). he can increase his intestinal tract’s ability to absorb iron in his diet by combining iron-rich plant foods with sources of

The right answer is Transgenic organisms can produce a desired product that may benefit other organisms.

A transgenic organism contains DNA combining  stably integrated in all its cells. In other words, the organism, be it a plant, an animal or a microorganism, has a new piece of DNA embedded in it. a chromosome in each of its cells. This “new piece” of DNA usually contains a gene from another organism (plant, animal or other) that has been modified to be expressed in the new  organization. A transgenic organism may even possess the DNA of another organism of the same species. The inserted gene can be called the transgene.

Currently, diabetics are treated by injecting insulin from either a healthy human donor or cultures of genetically modified (transgenic) bacteria that secrete the protein.

## 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 potential energy diagram (the energy of the transition state).

For an endothermic reaction, the products will be closer in energy to the transition state than what the reactans will be; so, the activation energy of the reversed reaction is lower than the activation energy of the forward reaction.

Activation energy of reverse and forward reactions is related by:

Activation energy of reverse rxn = Activation energy of forward rxn – ΔH rxn

=> Activiation energy of reverse rxn = 102 kJ/mol – 55 kJ/mol = 47 kJ/mol

## 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 new value for the resistance is R=1.18*R₀.

T₀=20°C
=0.0068
R=1.18*R₀

Now we need to input that into the equation for resistance change and solve for temperature T.

1.18R₀=R₀(1+α(T-20)), R₀ cancels out,

1.18=1+α(T-20),

1.18-1=α(T-20), we divide by α,

0.18/α=T-20, we put 20 on the left side,

26.47+20=T

T=46.47°C

So the temperature on which the resistance of copper wire will increase by 18% is T=46.47°C.
