Living Environment Diagrams
Vacuole: small/many-- large few
Nucleus: center – off center
Shape: round -- rectangle
Size of Mantle and Core
Similarity to Earth
O2, Na, H Atmosphere
Explanation: The concentration of oxygen is greater outside of the cell so it will
diffuse into the cell. (Protein molecules stay within the cell because they are too
large to diffuse out of the cell. The water concentration is at equilibrium.)
Seven Stars A-G
Constellation: Ursa Major
Big Dipper - Plough
Location of Stars – Change?:
Dubhe, Merak, Phecda, Megrez, Alioth, Mizar, Alkaid
5 of the stars of the Big Dipper are the core of the Ursa Major Moving Group. The two ends are not part of the swarm, and are moving in the opposite direction. This will slowly change the Dipper's shape, with the bowl opening up and the handle becoming more bent. In 50,000 years the Dipper will no longer exist as we know it, but be re-formed into a new Dipper facing the opposite way.
Two Alternating Phosphate and Sugar strands that are cross connected by pairs of matching Nitrogen Bases (G-C, A-T)
Provides code for production of specific proteins (characteristics)

Two small circles
Attach to surface
of salt and dust
Water molecules will combine with tiny particles of dust, salt, and smoke in the air to form cloud droplets, which grow and develop into clouds and form of water we can see.
Placenta embeds into the walls of the uterus and embryo is enclosed in a fluid filled membrane.
Food and wastes diffuse across the placenta and travel through the umbilical cord to support the growth and development of the fetus in the uterus.
Pail with pendulum

Stool that can
The experimental apparatus consists of a tall pendulum free to oscillate in any vertical plane. The direction along which the pendulum swings rotates with time because of Earth's daily rotation.
E-S Complex breaks down substrate into 2 parts
Substrate fits into Enzyme
Enzymes are specific for the substrate they work on. The substrate fits into the enzymes active site and undergoes hydrolysis (or can be joined by dehydration synthesis).
Half the atoms have decayed
Time interval is the same
Half Life: Amount of time it takes for half of the atoms in a sample to decay and is constant over the whole life of the decay
Equilibrium in Ecosystems
Modify ecosystems through …
Ecosystem is not in equilibrium
Technology, consumption, and population growth can cause negative changes in an ecosystem so it can no longer maintain its equilibrium.
Weathering, Expansion, Atmospheric Gas
Hydrolysis, Carbonation, Abrasion, etc.
Break down of
Rocks breakdown of rocks and soils through direct contact with atmospheric conditions or chemicals
Weathering of rocks is necessary to produce soil and determines the mineral content of the soil
1. Elodea uses light to carry out photosynthesis
2. Photosynthesis produces oxygen as a byproduct and is released into the water
3. Oxygen bubbles rise to the top of the test tube and collects
In the process of photosynthesis plants use light energy, carbon dioxide and water to produce glucose and oxygen in the chloroplasts.
Test gas in test tube with a glowing splint. If it is oxygen then splint will burn bright.
1. Water from stream flows over rock.
2. Water carries sediments suspended
In water or roll on stream bed
3. Sediment particles erode bedrock and become smaller and
smoother and deposit (rock cycle).
