Cells usually cannot use heat to power mechanical work because (2 points) Question 2 options:


after several energy conversions, there is not enough energy in heat to power cellular functions


as the heat increases the cell's temperature, it must be released to prevent cell damage


heat is a waste product of chemical reactions and not a true form of kinetic or potential energy


there is not enough of a temperature difference within the cell for heat to be able to flow


Answer 1

The answer is; option 2

The cell must maintain a homeostatic temperatures of 37 degrees centigrade in humans. Therefore heat is less likely to be used to power mechanical work because it has to be kept constant. Heat ,also, cannot be stored when it increases in the cell, the way energy is stored in chemical bonds in ATPs.

Where does the old crust move when the seafloor spreads



Seafloor spreading is a process that occurs at mid-ocean ridges, where new oceanic crust is formed through volcanic activity and then gradually moves away from the ridge.


Seafloor spreading occurs at divergent plate boundaries. As tectonic plates slowly move away from each other, heat from the mantle's convection currents makes the crust more plastic and less dense. The less-dense material rises, often forming a mountain or elevated area of the seafloor.

The continual process of seafloor spreading separated the stripes in an orderly pattern. Oceanic crust slowly moves away from mid-ocean ridges and sites of seafloor spreading. As it moves, it becomes cooler, more dense, and more thick

2. Which organisms utilize a one-way air flow through their lungs to maximize air flow efficiency and oxygen consumption? A. Amphibians B. Fish C. Mammals D. Birds


The correct answer is option D, that is, birds.  

Birds are the species that uses a one-path air flow via the lungs to enhance the efficiency of air flow and consumption of oxygen. The flow of air in birds plays an essential function at the time of flying. In addition, greater oxygen consumption and airflow efficiency are required by the birds as their heart pumps briskly in order to tackle the flapping of wings that make them fly.  

The best answer is D, birds.

Which of these animals undergoes incomplete metamorphosis? A) beetles
B) butterflies
C) praying mantis
D) moths


Answer: C). praying mantis

The life cycle of insects that undergo incomplete metamorphosis takes place in three stages: egg, nymph and adult. When the eggs are hatched then the insect body undergo several nymphal stages to develop into an adult form. The adult insect can be distinguished from the nymphs by size and presence of wings. The animal which undergoes incomplete metamorphosis is praying mantis.

Praying mantis
 The praying mantis goes through three stages: egg nymph and adult
