Interchangeability & Homeostatic Mechanisms

Post by Host » Thu Jan 12, 2006 7:30 pm

Hey i have two quick ques. which after reading i cant seem to agree to disagree if there too hard or not

we all know sci and tech are diff yet, are they interchangeable terms, as that you could say, the sci of DNA and DNA tech. represent the same areas of inquiry?

and what type of feedback is generally produced in living org through homeostatic mechanisms? or more plainly, do they (H.M) function mostly through pos. or neg feedback???

- sad that this sh*t keeps me up


ANd a doozer which i have yet that is still unawswered (dont expect any to get this but u can try)

- T/F -
It makes sense that the elements found in living thinds are what they are - they represent the most common elements on our planet?

is that too much of a trick ques or what? trying to use these as study material

Thanks

Please try to make an effort and write words, not fractions of a word

alright see if these helps

True or False
1. Technology and Science are interchangeable terms, e.g., the science of DNA and DNA technology represent the same areas of inquiry

2. Its makes sense that the elements found in living things are what they are- they represent the most common elements on our planet

3 Homeostatic mechanisms in living organisms function mostly through negetive feedback

- i think 1.s T, no clue about 2 or 3...

1.No, technology is applied, science is exploratory.
2.No, if platinum was the most abundant element on the planet, that doesn't mean everything would be made of platinum More of it has to do with the versatility of carbon.
3.True according to my bio book.
