3.5 A new life

There is a common belief that life begins at the moment of conception, i.e. when a sperm fuses with an egg. This is a step forward from past years, when life was alleged to start at the time of ‘quickening’, i.e. when a woman could feel her fetus moving inside her. However, both these opinions suffer from an underlying falsehood: that life ‘begins’ at all. Life is a continuum; gametes are produced by living parents, and fuse to produce new living individuals, but unfused gametes are n

3.4.2 Compaction and adhesion

Around the time of the 8- to 16-cell division, the conceptus undergoes a morphological (shape) change, called compaction, in which the cells fatten on each other, and the outlines of individual cells become hard to distinguish. This stage, sometimes referred to as a morula, from the Greek word for mulberry, is shown in Figure 17i. At this stage it is hard to see individual cells; in fact, unless the cells are separated by various laboratory treatments, it is not possible to see the two

1.3.2 β pleated sheets

Another common secondary structure is the β pleated sheet, which contains extended stretches of polypeptide chain with hydrogen bonds between neighbouring strands. In parallel β pleated sheet, polypeptide strands run in the same direction (i.e. from N- to C-terminus) whereas in antiparallel β pleated sheet, neighbouring strands extend in opposite directions (Author(s): The Open University

1.3.5 A note on graph drawing

There will be many occasions throughout your study of physics when you will need to draw graphs. This subsection gives some important guidelines for this activity.

  1. Decide which is the independent variable and which the dependent variable. Plot the independent variable along the horizontal axis and the dependent variable along the vertical axis. This is purely a convention but is why, for instance, we usually plot the time

3.2 Penguins

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes) are an ancient and distinctive group of flightless, short-legged birds that evolved in the Southern Hemisphere, probably around New Zealand, about 65 Ma ago in the late Cretaceous, although the oldest known fossils date from about 45 Ma ago.

At a maximum body mass of more than 40 kg, the emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri;Figure 10a) is the largest living penguin (some fossil species were much bigger) and is found further south than any other v

Introduction

Graphs are a common way of presenting information. However, like any other type of representation, graphs rely on shared understandings of symbols and styles to convey meaning. Also, graphs are normally drawn specifically with the intention of presenting information in a particularly favourable or unfavourable light, to convince you of an argument or to influence your decisions.

Nuclear power: Friend or foe?
Are you for or against nuclear energy? The necessity to respond to climate change has put nuclear energy back on the politial agenda as an alternative energy source. This is part of approaches to 'decarbonise' energy through a shift from coal to natural gas, nuclear energy and renewables. Yet, the recourse to nuclear energy is hotly debated. Opponents are rife, as you are supporter. Can you adopt each position in turn? This unit challenges you to do so.Author(s): Creator not set
