Observations are made, and the researcher decides on an area they would like to investigate. Within this area, the researcher must think about which aspect will give useful knowledge, and they research this. Often, it is a problem where the outcome will be of use other than just knowledge, it could be used in medecine, … Read more
A scientific research paper will contain several sections. There will be an introduction to explain what the researcher hopes to find, a hypothesis and a null hypothesis. There may some scientific explanation given for the particular theory. There will be a section explaining the general procedure, but just an outline, not a step by step … Read more
They are the bones in your feet, and without them you would have pretty floppy feet.
First you need to know the molecular formula for the molecule. Lets use water, H2O. H has an atomic mass of 1, so H2 = 2 O has atomic mass of 16 16+2=18, which is the relative atomic mass of 1 water molecule (relative to a carbon 12 atom). We must also know the mass … Read more
It can happen is some cases, such as if you lose your sense of sight your hearing can improve, and if you lose hearing, it is possible (but less likely) that your sight can be improved, the latter of the 2 is not as popular, whereas the former is highly documented. However, it is not … Read more
All cells in the body require water and nutrition and must get rid of waste, so osmosis and diffusion occur in every cell in every organism. If any cells could not perform these functions, it would either dry up and die through lack of water, it could stop functioning and die through lack of nutrition, … Read more
As a scientific term, family generally means things that are close together in characteristics, that are similar. In biology it is a way of classing organisms, and gives an idea of how closely they are related.
Only the reproductive cells do this, the ones that will form sperm and eggs, and it is to give variation in offspring, as the DNA can be altered and sections swapped during meiosis, and it also gives the cells half the number of chromosomes so that at fertilisation the organism that forms has the normal … Read more
Deforestation is cutting down large areas of trees, Afforestation is replanting of large areas of trees.
If you go to the internet and use a search engine to find the specific heat capacity of silver, and make sure it is in joules per (whatever the rest is). Then use the equation Energy = mass x specific heat capacity x change in temp this will give you the energy required.
They are thin because it allows more efficient diffusion of oxygen and nutrients into the blood and of carbon dioxide and other waste products out of the blood. They are small because it means that the red blood cells are pushed against the sides, which also makes for more efficient diffusion.
Animals would probably never have been created. The nucleus is important for storage of DNA, and for the formation of mRNA to be used to synthesis proteins. Without a nucleus, we could not survive as animals, as the nucleus separates processes such as DNA translation and transcription, which if not separated could cause problems. If … Read more
Because cells are tiny, and a microscope is needed to view them, and even when you use a microscope you don't necessarily get a good view as cells can be damaged, and many parts cannot be seen without an electron microscope, which you are unlikely to find in most normal schools. With a replica, it … Read more
If you mean in the UK, then I can say that The University of Nottingham is a good choice. I am in my first year of studying genetics here and can already tell how good it is. They have high grade machinery and technology and are viewed as not just doing university research, but internationally … Read more
The golgi body is important in the cell in protein synthesis, and transportation of newly synthesised proteins. It is a piled system of membrane sacs, called cisternae, and vesicles. Protein synthesis occurs to an extent in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and vesicles containing the protein then break off the ER, flow through the cell, and … Read more
