Yes, because smaller particles tend to increase permeability by increasing the surface area. B. No, because pores that are not well connected have low permeability C. Yes, because smaller particles tend to increase porosity D. both b and c

Which of the following best describes the 1957 events at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas? Governor Faubus resisted the school’s integration with National Guard troops, and President Eisenhower sent federal troops to enforce integration. Under Governor Faubus, Little Rock police first fought, then enforced, the order to integrate the school. President Eisenhower sent National Guard troops to resist the school’s integration, but Governor Faubus obtained a court order to dismiss them. President Eisenhower and Governor Faubus worked together to make the integration process run as smoothly as possible.

The correct answer is  Governor Faubus resisted the school’s integration with National Guard troops, and President Eisenhower sent federal troops to enforce integration. After the Supreme Court case Brown vs. Board of Education (1954) the federal government called for the desegregation of schools all across America. This included Central High …

Think about an igneous rock at the top of a mountain. If this rock went through the whole rock cycle, number the steps that would follow. 1. Step 1 Regolith is dumped into some type of reservoir, usually water, by deposition. 2. Step 2 Metamorphic rock begins to melt back into magma. 3. Step 3 Regolith is transported or eroded by rain or wind. 4. Step 4 Rock is broken down into regolith by weathering. 5. Step 5 Layers deposited begin to compact and cement together to form sedimentary rock. 6. Step 6 Sedimentary rock is buried deeper into the earth’s crust. The intense heat and pressure begins metamorphism and the rock turns into metamorphic rock. 7. Step 7 Magma is resurfaced from volcanic activity, cools, and becomes igneous rock.

Answer: The correct sequence according to the question is steps- 4→1→3→5→6→2→7. Explanation: The given steps show that how the rocks are recycled from one form to another form due to certain factors like weathering over geological time scale which was explained by James Hutton and he termed this concept as …

If you were to drop a rock from a tall building, assuming that it had not yet hit the ground, and neglecting air resistance, how far would it have fallen (in m) after 2 s? (g = 10 m/s2) 20.0

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 …

A rock is stuck deep in the dirt. When you pull on the rock to remove it, what type of force are you exerting? A.Compression B.Strong nuclear force C.Tension D.Air resistance

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 …

Which type of rock is especially likely to form caves

The correct answer is – Principle of superposition. In the geology, the principle of superposition is very often used for the determining of the age of the rocks, but only if the layers are undisturbed. This principle suggests that if the rock layers have not been disturbed, than the layers …
