Asked by Jack

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.

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

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 need to be broken down into fatty acids and glycerol before entering the bloodstream. Fats are large insoluble molecule and therefore would not be able to pass through the membrane of the gut (where you have the lacteal which inside the villi) neither the bloodstream. Remember the capillaries themselves are one cell thick. Large molecules can not pass into bloodstream. They must be digested.... 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
