Meteorites have been investigated by scientists over the past two centuries. the chemical elements they contain have been analyzed and what is most remarkable is that the chemical composition of chondritic meteorites is almost exactly the same as the chemical composition of the sun when gases like hydrogen and helium are not included in the comparison. their composition infers that they were made from the same original batch of material. the earth, which lies between the sun and the asteroid belt, the source of these meteorites, is believed to have been made from the same material as well. theory states that the sun and planets came into existence when part of an enormous cloud of gas and dust, drifting in the milky way galaxy, became unstable and collapsed inwards on itself under the influence of its own gravity. the dust in the cloud had the same chemical composition as the sun and chondritic meteorites. gravity brought most of the gas and dust together in a single central mass but some of the gas and dust became spread out in a flat disk rotating around the sun. the dust included an abundance of olivine-rich grains and bits of metal and it eventually clumped together to form larger objects, ending with planets and asteroids, all orbiting the sun. the gas was lost from the asteroids and the inner, terrestrial planets because their gravity was too weak to hold on to it, but the gas did stick to jupiter and the other icy-cold giant planets beyond.

earth began as a mixture of about 90% stony, olivine-rich material and about 10% iron metal, just like the composition of chondritic meteorites. soon after its formation the interior of the earth is thought to have become very hot. what was the result of this increase in heat?

the iron melted and collected in the interior of earth to become its core.

the olivine remained behind, becoming the mantle and the melted iron became the core.

both the olivine and iron melted and as they later solidified, became the mantle and the core.

the olivine became the crust and the iron, melting, defended into the earth to become the core.

The model illustrates a process by which a substance is taken up by a cell. series of four pictures. in the first two pictures, a cell reaches out and engulfs a particle to create a bubble inside the cell. in the third picture, a small gray cell structure fuses with the bubble. in the fourth picture, the particle is greatly reduced in size and is contained an irregularly-shaped structure resulting from the fusion of the cells structure and the bubble. which statements describe the process? a. the model shows the process of endocytosis. b. the process shown in the model requires energy from the cell. c. the cell membrane in the model remains intact throughout the process. d. the model shows the process of facilitated diffusion.

Interpret the model. a three-part model with black right-arrows between the parts. left part: a large green apple-shaped component with a w-shaped indentation centered on top. a small blue apple-slice shape sits above the left indentation and an arrow points from the shape to the indentation. a small purple apple-slice shape and arrow sit above the right indentation and an arrow points from the shape to the indentation. middle part: a large green apple-shaped component with a square indentation centered on top. sitting in the left side of the indentation is a blue apple-slice shape with a flat bottom, fused to a purple apple-slice shape with a flat bottom on the right side of the indentation. right part: a large green apple-shaped component with a w-shaped indentation centered on top. an up-arrow is centered above the indentation pointing to a fused blue and purple apple-slice-shaped flat-bottom component sitting above the indentation. assigne "true" or "false" to the end of each statement. the model shows a shape change occurring in the enzyme after the substrate is bound in the active site. t/fthere are two products in this model. t? f there are three substrates in this model. t/f the model shows two different enzymes. t/f

Humans are believed to have evolved in coastal regions in east africa. the region had an abundant supply of fish for early humanoids to eat. when scientists analyze the fads gene they see an interesting pattern. people whose families have lived in this area of east africa for generation show a high level of diversity in alleles for the fads gene. conversely, people whose families had migrated inland a moderate distance from sources of fish showed a much lower diversity for fads gene alleles. additionally, the fads alleles found in people whose family has lived inland for generation are almost all gene alleles which produce fads proteins with a high level of function and activity. how do anthropologists explain this?
