In humans, one function of the skin is to prevent water loss. Skin releases water or holds in water when necessary.Which two structures in plants have a similar function to skin?
> roots and chloroplasts
> phloem and roots
> cuticle and stomata
> stomata and phloem
Cuticle and stomata in plants have a similar function to skin.
What are the functions of cuticles?
The cuticle is well known for its functions as a diffusion barrier limiting water and solute transport across the apoplast and for its protection of the plant against chemical and mechanical damage, as well as pest and pathogen attack.
In some higher plants, the cuticle is a water-impervious protective layer covering the epidermal cells of leaves and other parts and limiting water loss. It consists of cutin, a waxy, water-repellent substance allied to suberin, which is found in the cell walls of corky tissue.
The cuticle itself comprises three layers: the cuticular layer; cuticle proper; and epicuticular waxes. The cuticular layer is the innermost layer, which overlays the primary wall and consists of cellulose and other polysaccharides along with cutin and wax.
what do you think the rock in Earth’s mantle is like? Is the mantle made of hard, solid rock or soft, solid rock? Explain your ideas.
Mantle is a layer on planetary body which is made up of minerals. Mantle is solid as it is made up of heavy metals and solid rocks which makes it rigid.
What is Mantle?
A mantle is a layer inside a planetary body bounded by a core and on the above by a crust. Mantle is made up of rock or ices, and is generally the largest and most massive layer of any planetary body. Mantles are on the planetary bodies that have undergone differentiation by density.
The mantle is composed primarily of heavy metals, such as iron, nickel, and others. The state of the mantle was described as plastic. Many divide the mantle into further such as the asthenosphere and lithosphere.
Mantle rocks are soft and able to move over the course of millions of years at great depth and pressure. The transfer of heat and material in the mantle helps to determine the landscape of the planet.
If the mantle is made out of soft rock, then I think it would melt due to the heat, but if it was hard, it would just burn, so I firmly believe the rock is hard.
Why does the ocean contain more heat energy than a pot of boiling water?A because the ocean has many more molecules than a pot of water B because ocean water has a higher temperature than boiling water C because the salt in the ocean causes ocean water to hold on to more heat D because molecules of ocean water moves more slowly than those of boiling water
A.bevause the ocean had more molecule than a pot of water.
The ocean contains more heat energy than a pot of boiling water because it has many more molecules.
The correct answer is A) because the ocean has many more molecules than a pot of water.
In terms of heat energy, the total amount of energy in a substance is directly proportional to the number of molecules it contains. Therefore, the ocean, which is much larger than a pot of boiling water, contains a significantly higher number of molecules, resulting in more heat energy.
For example, if we compare a small pot of boiling water to the vast ocean, the ocean contains a much larger volume of water, and therefore, a greater number of molecules that contribute to its heat energy.

Plants need nitrogen in order to survive. The problem is they cannot take in the atmospheric nitrogen, but instead must rely on a certain class of bacteria that are able to turn atmospheric nitrogen into other nitrogen compounds, such as ammonia and nitrates. What is the name of this process?A)nitrification B)photo-oxidation C)nitrogen fixation D)nitrogen absorption
c.) Nitrogen fixation

Explanation:I just had this question
What occurs when people are exposed to substances that their bodies are sensitive to? histamines
B. allergies occur when people are exposed to substances that their bodies are sensitive to.
What happens to the immune system when a person is exposed to allergies?
The immune system overreacts by producing an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies migrate to the cells, which release chemicals and cause an allergic reaction. This reaction usually causes symptoms in the nose, lungs, throat, sinuses, ears, lining of the stomach, or skin.
Allergies occur when the immune system reacts to foreign substances such as pollen, bee venom, animal scales, or foods that do not cause a reaction in most people. Your immune system produces a substance known as an antibody.
