Asked by Noor

I want a unique Epq idea that relates to science(preferrably medicine) could you tell me what you think I should do it on?

gene mutation and crispr are super interesting and current but are common topics for EPQ! Would recommend another one of your options but make sure to include up to date information and recent developments in the area.

Asked by Noor

Why are fats not absorbed into the bloodstream rather into lacteals? What are the benefits of doing so? And what are the consequences of not doing it?

Fats molecules are too large to be absorbed into the blood stream inside the tiny capillaries which would get clogged by them.

Five adaptations of root hair

Plants absorb water from the soil by osmosis. They absorb mineral ions by active transport, against the concentration gradient. Root hair cells are adapted for taking up water and mineral ions by having a large surface area to increase the rate of absorption. They also contain lots of mitochondria, which release energy from glucose during respiration in order to provide the energy needed for activ... more

Similarities in exhaled and inhaled air

If you think about the equation for respiration (C6H12O6 +6 O2 = 6 H2O + 6 CO2) the gases involved are Oxygen and carbon dioxide. This means there will be a slight decrease in oxygen level and slight increase in carbon dioxide level, everything else will remain the same.

Asked by Vinita

What is active immunity

It’s always good to understand the alternative to this question also, passive immunity. Passive immunity is that which is acquired from a different person i.e. an unborn foetus acquired immunity to whooping cough after the mother has the pertussis vaccination at around 28 weeks of pregnancy, and again post birth through breastfeeding. If the mother is exposed to a pathogen her body will make anti... more

Asked by 刘勋陽

Chemical bond and intermolecular bonds Is it the same? If not, tell me the difference.

Chemical bonds are like two people who are married. It will take a lot more energy (and money) to break them apart. And if they do break apart, they are never the same. Intermolecular bonds are like people who are dating. They are not really committed to each other and it takes less energy to break them apart, and they are pretty much the same when they break apart and will easily for new bonds.... more

Asked by Princeval

What is photosynthesis?

Good evening Princeval, I would like to add the following to the fantastic answers you’ve had so far. 6CO2 + 12H2O + Light Energy → C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O This balanced chemical equation shows how carbohydrates, oxygen and water are synthesised from carbon dioxide and water (plus light energy). Photosynthesis occurs in plants, algae and some bacteria.
