The Earth's Atmosphere - by StudyJams
The atmosphere is a blanket of gases surrounding the Earth. The gases are classified according to their temperature differences. The weight of those gases pressing down on earth is what creates air pressure. Learn more about the atmosphere with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
Bulbs and roots
Bulbs need light, sunlight, and nutrients in order to grow new plants. The roots of plants help the plant absorb water and nutrients from the soil.

The question of whether this behavioral variability merely reflects residual deviations due to extrinsic random noise in such otherwise deterministic systems or an intrinsic, adaptive indeterminacy trait is central for the basic understanding of brain function. Instead of random noise
