# Since water has a strong surface tension, what do you think would happen if water had weak surface tension

Surface tension is the property of the surface of a liquid which allows it to resist an external force. It is due to the cohesive nature (stickiness and clumpability) of the water molecules. Since water has a strong surface tension:

1)      The surface tension of water provides the necessary wall tension for the formation of bubbles with water

2)      It is responsible for the shape of liquid droplets, too

3)      Small objects will "float" on the surface of a fluid, as long as the object cannot break through and separate the top layer of water molecules

If surface tension is weak, the reverse happens. Bubbles will come from round to spherical, small objects will not float, water will fall as it is, without forming spherical droplets and will not immediately spread.

Question
In everyday life, a theory is an educated guess. In science a theory is A) an accepted claim. B) an unsubstantiated truth. C) an unsubstantiated claim. D) a well-supported explanation.
Solution 1
The correct answer is D) a well-supported explanation.
Solution 2
A theory is a list of statements that are (more or less) proven facts that are strung together to form an explanation for a phenomenon. A theory is assumed or accepted as true until something disproves it. A theory is falsifiable, meaning that something can disprove it at any point in time. But, a good theorist will tweak his or her theory a bit to account for the falsified data.

Long story, short, this question is worded weirdly, because all theories are the above definition. An educated guess in everyday life isn’t a theory; it is a hypothesis. Secondly, the most basic definition of theory is “a well-supported explanation that is accepted as true until it is falsified,” so the answer can be both A and D. If I had to pick one though, I would go with D.
Question
Which carbohydrate is found in plant cell walls and is indigestible for mammals and other animals ?
Solution 1

The indigestible carbohydrates that are found in plant cell walls are called dietary fibers. Dietary fibers are group of complex carbohydrates that is found mostly in vegetables, fruits and legumes. They include beans, whole grains such as wheat, nuts etc. Dietary fibers cannot be digested in mammals because the body lacks digestive enzyme that is required to break them down.

Question
What is one of the most effective ways to stop invasive animal species from entering the Great Lakes ecosystem?
Solution 1

The correct answer is - cleaning ballast water.

Explanation:

In the great lakes, 65% of the invasive species come from the ships that carry ballast water tanks to stabilize them on the long route journeys, this release invasive species when loading and unloading cargo.

Cleaning up these ballast water is one of the most effective ways to stop the new invasive to enter the Great Lakes.

Solution 2
Most of the ways to stop invasive animal species from entering the Great Lakes ecosystem is starting with people themselves. try not to plant anything that would be invasive to the echo system and also try helping out by cleaning out the Great Lakes by picking up litter and so forth

Question
Mount Tambora, in Indonesia, erupted in April 1815, spewing huge amounts of fine ash into the air. The ash quickly spread throughout the upper atmosphere, reducing the amount of sunlight in the area. This led to a famine that killed at least 80,000 people. How did the eruption of Mount Tambora cause a famine?
Solution 1

The eruption of Mount Tambora was a huge one, and the amount of ash it released into the atmosphere managed to affect the whole world in the coming year and a half to two years, depending on the place.

The ash in the atmosphere was slightly reducing the amount of sunlight that was reaching the Earth, and because of that the temperatures were lower. The biggest problem was occurring during the night because the temperatures were going significantly lower than usual.

The crops were suffering very badly because of the sudden change of the climate, so big portion of them were either dying or producing very small amounts. That led to a famine, and around 80,000 people died from starvation.

Solution 2

The eruption of Mount Tambora was a huge one, and the amount of ash it released into the atmosphere managed to affect the whole world in the coming year and a half to two years, depending on the place.

Question
What are two ways cancer cells are different from normal cells
Solution 1
Normal cells listen to signals from neighboring cells and stop growing when they encroach on nearby tissues (something called contact inhibition.) Cancer cells ignore these cells and invade nearby tissues. Benign (non-cancerous) tumors have a fibrous capsule.
Question
Which of these are properties of elliptical galaxies? Select all that apply. A. have several arms B. rotate relatively quickly C. can have various shapes D. appear similar from each side
Solution 1

D. appear similar from each side

Explanation:

Elliptical galaxies are a type of galaxy that have a spherical or ellipsoidal shape, and have no spiral-shaped structure. The vast majority of these galaxies have little gas, little dust and few young stars. More expressly, they look a lot like the nucleus and halo of spiral galaxies. Some are quite elongated and some very flat if viewed from Earth, however their shape is basically similar on each side.

About one third of the galaxies are elliptical in shape. Elliptical galaxies range in size from dwarf galaxies, often difficult to distinguish from globular clusters, to giant galaxies such as M70, a giant elliptical galaxy in the constellation Virgo.

Solution 2
D. Appear similar from each side
100% right
Question
What kind of water is found in the littoral zone of a lake?
Solution 1

The littoral zone is the part of the lake that is close to the shore. It exhibit very low biological activity, but contains higher oxygen content. The water in the littoral zone of lake is freshwater being unaffected by the living organisms like plants and fishes.

Solution 2
The littoral zone is the part of a sea, lake or river that is close to the shore. In coastal environments the littoral zone extends from the high water mark, which is rarely inundated, to shoreline areas that are permanently submerged. It always includes this intertidal zone and is often used to mean the same as the intertidal zone. However, the meaning of "littoral zone" can extend well beyond the intertidal zone and that is you answer
