D)Some places on Earth would experience fewer hours of darkness.
Based on the diagram shown above and what you know about food webs, which of the following conclusions is correct? A)Since organisms withing a food web have several food choices, all the organisms within the food web can survive. B)Since organisms within a food web are interdependent, the disappearance of one organism within the food web could affect all the organisms within that web. C)Since both producers and consumers live within a food web, the energy available within the food web remains constant. D)Since organisms within a food web must compete for food, the disappearance of one organism within the food web helps other organisms within the web to survive.
In science class, students were asked to complete a food web like the one shown below. In which numbered box on the food web should students place autotrophs? A)Box 1 B)Box 2 C)Box 3 D)Box 4
A mover pushed a crate across a smooth warehouse floor a distance of 10 meters. If 250 joules of work was done, how much force (in newtons) did the mover exert on the crate to move it? Record your answer in the boxes. Then fill in the bubbles. Be sure to use the correct place value. 2 5
The thrust from a rocket’s engine lifts the rocket into the air. Which of the following best explains why the engine’s thrust lifts the rocket? A)An object in motion tends to stay in motion; an object at rest tends to stay at rest. B)The greater an object’s mass, the greater its resistance to a change in motion. C)For every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. D)The greater the force applied to an object, the greater the object’s acceleration.
