Question #5 What percentage of blood is water? Have your scientist help locate information, researcher document sources, and mathematician generate an illustration to depict the water make-up of blood. What percentage of blood is water? Have your scientist help locate information, researcher document sources, and mathematician generate an illustration to depict the water make-up of blood.

Answer #5 90% of 55% which is 49.5% When spun in a centrifuge, the cells and cell fragments of blood are separated from the liquid intercellular matrix. Because the formed elements are heavier than the liquid matrix, they are packed in the bottom of the tube by the centrifugal force. The light yellow colored liquid on the top is the plasma, which accounts for about 55 percent of the blood volume and red blood cells is called the hematocrit,or packed cell volume (PCV). The white blood cells and platelets form a thin white layer, called the "buffy coat," between plasma and red blood cells. Plasma is the watery fluid portion of blood (90 percent water) in which the corpuscular elements are suspended. It transports nutrients as well as wastes throughout the body. Various compounds, including proteins, electrolytes, carbohydrates, minerals, and fats, are dissolved in it. 90% of 55% which is 49.5% When spun in a centrifuge, the cells and cell fragments of blood are separated from the liquid intercellular matrix.

Question #6 Identify two main functions of water in the bodys metabolic process. Identify up to four other bodily functions that water has for one bonus point each. Identify two main functions of water in the bodys metabolic process. Identify up to four other bodily functions that water has for one bonus point each.

http://www.be-with- you.com/dew/WaterAndOurBody.h tml Answer #6 Water has 2 main functions in the metabolic process –It delivers oxygen and nutrients to different parts of the body. –It removes toxins and waste from the body. Water has 2 main functions in the metabolic process –It delivers oxygen and nutrients to different parts of the body. –It removes toxins and waste from the body.

Answer #6 Water also has other functions: –Regulates body temperature through perspiration. –Reduces friction between joints and facilitates movement. –Acts as a cushion between organs in order to protect them. –Facilitates normal functions of body processes.

Question #7 What three ways does the body lose water? How much water does a body lose in one day from normal activity? How many days can you survive without water? How much water loss would cause death? What three ways does the body lose water? How much water does a body lose in one day from normal activity? How many days can you survive without water? How much water loss would cause death?

Answer #7 A person can go without food for several weeks in necessary, but without water life cannot last more than a few days. The human body is 60-70 % water. We take in water with food and drink, and lose it in urine, in sweat, and in our breath (as water vapor). A person loses 2 to 3 quarts (1.89-2.83 l) of water every day as a result of their normal body functions. This much loss means if a person doesn't get any fluids for about three days, they will die. 6-9 quarts (5.678-8.517 l) of water loss would cause death.

Question #8 Recall how much water the average person loses in one day through their urine, sweat, and normal breathing. Have your mathematician create a graph to identify what percentage of overall water loss occurs when: – Thirst is perceived. – Strength and endurance decrease. – Delirium and blurred vision become a problem and you can not move. – A person dies. Calculate the amount of water loss for each based on the amount of water lost per day. Recall how much water the average person loses in one day through their urine, sweat, and normal breathing.

Calculate the amount of water loss for each based on the amount of water lost per day.

Answer #8 In one day the average person loses between 2 to 3 quarts of water through their urine, sweat, and normal breathing. If a person doesn't replace that lost water, then dehydration begins to occur. – At 1-2% dehydration, thirst is perceived. (.6-.9 quarts) – At 5% dehydration, a person becomes hot and tired, and strength and endurance decrease. (1.5-2.25 quarts) – At 10% dehydration, delirium and blurred vision become a problem and you can not move. (3-4.5 quarts) – At 12-20% dehydration, a person dies. (6-9 quarts) In one day the average person loses between 2 to 3 quarts of water through their urine, sweat, and normal breathing. If a person doesn't replace that lost water, then dehydration begins to occur. – At 1-2% dehydration, thirst is perceived. (.6-.9 quarts) – At 5% dehydration, a person becomes hot and tired, and strength and endurance decrease. (1.5-2.25 quarts) – At 10% dehydration, delirium and blurred vision become a problem and you can not move. (3-4.5 quarts) – At 12-20% dehydration, a person dies. (6-9 quarts)

So? Most people have never thought about the above because they have NEVER been personally confronted with an extended shortage of fresh safe drinking water at any time in their lives. In many other countries, they think about this every day. A shortage of fresh safe drinking water is a daily problem.

Note! Keep in mind that these numbers only represent what the human body needs on the inside. We havent even thought about washing your hands, brushing your teeth or bathing.

Other Water Facts 1.2 billion people lack access to safe water, roughly one-sixth of the world's population and 2.4 billion or 40 percent of the world's people lack access to adequate sanitation services. Some 6,000 children die every day from diseases associated with unsafe water and poor sanitation and hygiene. Unsafe water and sanitation cause an estimated 80 percent of all diseases in the developing world. Women and girls tend to suffer the most as a result of the lack of sanitation facilities. One flush of a Western toilet uses as much water as the average person in the developing world uses for a whole day's washing, drinking, cleaning and cooking. 1.2 billion people lack access to safe water, roughly one-sixth of the world's population and 2.4 billion or 40 percent of the world's people lack access to adequate sanitation services.

Continued... Water use has grown at twice the rate of population during the past century. The Middle East, North Africa and South Asia are chronically short of water. In developing countries, as much as 90 percent of waste water is discharged without treatment. Over pumping groundwater for drinking water and irrigation has caused water levels to decline by tens of meters in many regions, forcing people to use low-quality water for drinking. Losses of water through leakage, illegal hook-ups and waste amount to about 50 percent of water for drinking and 60 percent of water for irrigation in developing countries. Floods affected more than 75 percent of all people impacted by natural disasters during the 1990s and caused over 33 percent of the total estimated costs of natural disasters.
