Re: Organism that create or supress water

... solid, liquid or gaseous state. The product of a chemical reaction has a new composition and can have many different physical properties than the reactants (color, density, thermal conductivity, heat capacity, etc.).

Re: CHALLENGE: Why should there be an “origin of species”?

... Note: theoretically all reactions are reversible under right conditions. This is no circle. NOT Circle, CYCLE: Reactants to products to reactants... 3. Planets/orbits/galaxies – all circular/elliptical – point is they have no beginning and no end. LOL I am glad ...

Re: Effect of temp. on cellular respiration

The rate of any reaction depends on the active masses of the reactants, the pH and the temperature. This applies to the biological reactions involving enzymes like cellular respiration The enzymes in general get more and more active as the temperature ...
