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 …

Hurry help me !!! Species are disappearing at an accelerating rate through human action, primarily habitat destruction but also pollution and the introduction of exotic species into residual natural environments. I have said that a fifth or more of the species of plants and animals could vanish or be doomed to early extinction by the year 2020 unless better efforts are made to save them. . . . As the last forests are felled in forest strongholds like the Philippines and Ecuador, the decline of species will accelerate even more. In the world as a whole, extinction rates are already hundreds or thousands of times higher than before the coming of man. They cannot be balanced by new evolution in any period of time that has meaning for the human race. What message does the author convey in this excerpt? Humans need to take action to end further destruction of the natural environment. In the coming years, humans will put forth stronger efforts to save plants and animals. The extinction of plant and animal species is problematic in the Philippines and Ecuador. In recent years, the extinction rate for many animal species has significantly increased.

You have designed a rocket to be used to sample the local atmosphere for pollution. It is fired vertically with a constant upward acceleration of 17 m/s2. After 30 s, the engine shuts off and the rocket continues rising (in freefall) for a while. (Neglect any effects due to air resistance.) The rocket eventually stops rising and then falls back to the ground. You want to get a sample of air that is 23 km above the ground.

The gravitational force Fg between two objects is given by the equation: Fg=(G*m₁*m₂)/r₂, where G=6.67*10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻² is the gravitational constant, m₁ and m₂ are the masses of the two bodies and r is the distance between those bodies.  Due to the gravitational attraction the pencil and the eraser will …

HELP ME PLEASE !!! Which is the best example of a strong conclusion in a presentation? Studies have shown that bottled water is not any safer than tap water in most communities. The FDA requires technicians to test all tap water before it is distributed. Another argument against bottled water is the waste that is produced in making and disposing of the plastic bottles. Distributing cases of water creates pollution and traffic. Drinking tap water instead of bottled water is a simple thing. It is inexpensive, saves the environment, and tastes great. Why buy bottles? Fill your glass at the tap and enjoy! Do you think you can taste the difference between expensive bottled water and the water that comes from your tap? We took a poll of students here in our school. Here are the results.
