Endosymbiosis & Lateral Gene Transfer

Endosymbiotic Theory: Mitochondria & Chloroplast are descendants of prokaryotic cells; they share clear structural/ biochemical features with modern prokaryotes. Cyanobacteria: blue-green algae; obtain their energy through photosynthesis Lateral gene Transfer: Gene from Mitochondria & Chloroplast MOVE from Mitochondria & Chloroplast to the nucleus Evidence of Endosymbiosis (Happened after evolution of aerobic prokaryotes) Morphology: Form of…

Pascal’s Law & Buoyancy

Fluid: system that yield to any force that attempts to alter their shape, causing system to flow until it reaches mechanical equilibrium; fluid conforms to shape of container Molecules of liquid in condense state; maintain CONSTANT intermolecular distance. Liquid will form SURFACE. Gas will not form surface; adjust intermolecular distance to fill space provided (compression/…

Induction: Induced & Permanent Charging

Induction: Induced & Permanent Charging Static electricity can be generated through: Friction, Conduction, INDUCTION Induction INDUCTION involves the movement of electrons in a neutral object when a charged object is brought close to the neutral object. The movement occurs WITHOUT DIRECT CONTACT between objects. Induced Charge Separation/ Temporary Charging When a negatively charged rod is…
