How can you reduce your carbon footprint and why is this important?
There are many ways you can reduce your carbon footprint. In terms of cars, you can drive less, carpool, or even bike more. You can take shorter showers to use less water or even turn off lights when you leave a room. Anything you can do at home to consume less energy will help with reducing your carbon footprint. The reason reducing your carbon footprint is so important is because it helps the environment by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, which causes climate change.
What is Gay-Lussac’s law and how does temperature affect pressure?
Gay-Lussac’s law is when temperature and pressure have a direct relationship between them when the amount of gas and volume are kept constant. This means that as temperature increases, pressure will also increase. When temperature increases, particles move faster. When particles move faster, it results in more collisions with the wall of a container, which increases the pressure.
How is Mitosis and cancer connected?
Cancer is uncontrollable mitosis, which means that cells are continually going through mitosis because of some mutation that occurred. During cell division, there are three checkpoints that check to make sure the cell has nothing wrong with it before moving to the next step in cell division. During normal cell division if a mutation is detected at one of these checkpoints and it can't be corrected, cells go through apoptosis, which is cell death. During cancer cell division, cells continuously and uncontrollably divide with those mutations and the checkpoints never tell the cells to go through apoptosis causing cancer.
