Which of these is important for the body's maintenance, growth, and repair?
Found in both animal sources (meat, fish, eggs, cheese) and vegetables (beans, nuts, some grains), proteins are important for the body's maintenance, growth, and repair.
The rate of flow of electrons per unit time is which of the following?
Current is the rate of flow of electrons per unit time and is measured in amperes (A). A coulomb (C) is the quantity of electricity conveyed in one second by a current of one ampere.
Assuming force applied remains constant, which of the following will result in more work being done?
moving the object farther
Work is accomplished when force is applied to an object: W = Fd where F is force in newtons (N) and d is distance in meters (m). Thus, the more force that must be applied to move an object, the more work is done and the farther an object is moved by exerting force, the more work is done.
Friction resists movement in a direction __________ to the movement.
Friction resists movement. Kinetic (also called sliding or dynamic) friction resists movement in a direction opposite to the movement. Because it opposes movement, kinetic friction will eventually bring an object to a stop. An example is a rock that's sliding across ice.
From what energy do photovoltaic cells produce electrical energy?
A photovoltaic cell (also known as a solar cell) converts energy from the sun into electrical energy.
An endoskeleton (internal skeleton) is a charateristic of __________ animals, including humans.
An endoskeleton (internal skeleton) is a charateristic of vertebrate animals, including humans.
Which of the following is not a common vehicle cylinder arrangement?
Cylinder number and arrangement depends on the purpose of the engine. Smaller (four and six cylinder) engines in front-wheel drive vehicles often use an inline design which orients cylinders vertically over the crankshaft and aligns them in a row. Other common orientations are a horizontal/opposed design which places cylinders flat facing each other with the crankshaft between them and a V-type design common in six and eight cylinder engines that features one cylinder head per block of cylinders oriented at a 60 to 90 degree angle to each other with the crankshaft at the bottom of the V.
