Algebra Formulas: Cheat Sheet

Do you remember the quadratic formula? How about the equation of a circle? What about the formula for exponents and logarithms? Odds are you have heard of these mathematical concepts but cannot pull the formulas off the top of your head. Luckily for you, that's why we are here! Here is a cheat sheet with a number of common algebraic formulas that you might find in your math classes. Afterward, we will look at some specific examples of how to use these...

Prokaryotes Vs Eukaryotes: What’s The Difference?

The cell is the most basic unit of life. All living things are made out of cells and cells are where the most basic metabolic reactions necessary for life take place. All living things can be divided into two main groups, based on the fundamental structure of their cells. Eukaryotes are made of cells that have a membrane-bound nucleus and specialized organelles. Prokaryotes are made out of cells that lack a membrane-bound nucleus and lack specialized organelles. Plants, animals, and...

Boyle’s Law Formula & Equation

Boyle's law, sometimes referred to as Mariotte's law, is a mathematical law that describes the behavior of a sample of an ideal gas. Boyle's law states that for a fixed amount of gas at a constant temperature, the volume of the gas is inversely proportional to the pressure of the gas. In other words, Boyle's law tells us that as the volume of a gas decreases, the pressure of that gas increases. Mathematically, Boyle's law can be expressed in two...

The Photosynthesis Process: Step By Step

How do plants eat? They do not have mouths and they cannot forage or hunt, so how do they get their food? Unlike animals like humans, dogs, or cats who must get their food from external sources, plants are capable of creating their own supply of food from inorganic sources of carbon. Plants can take energy from the sun and use that energy to synthesize carbohydrates. The process by which plants convert solar energy into chemical energy is called photosynthesis. During photosynthesis,...

Political Map Of The World

Everyone knows what a map is. Maps, in general, are a pictorial representation of some place that allows people to better identify things and their relations in that place. A political map represents the geographical boundaries of nations, states, and cities. Political maps are a way to figure out which countries lie where, and which government is control of which territory. A political map can be contrasted with a geographical map, which shows the physical features of the different parts of the...

What Is Nondisjunction?

In every cell of your body exists strands of DNA, wound into tightly coiled structures called chromosomes. Chromosomes are packets of genetic information that contain the biological information for each living organisms. Chromosomes play an important role in hereditary as they contain the genetic information passed down from mother and father to offspring. Cells in the body reproduce by first creating a copy of their chromosome, then physically splitting into two distinct cells, each with a set of chromosomes. These...

What Are Enzymes?

Every second of each day, billions of chemical reactions are occurring in your body. These reactions extract energy from organic material to drive biological processes. In living cells, these reactions proceed extremely quickly, but when performed in the lab, they happen much slower. Why do metabolic reactions in the human body take place much quicker than the same reactions outside of the human body? The answer: enzymes. Enzymes are biological macromolecules that accelerate chemical reactions. Metabolic reactions happen at a quicker rate...

What Is A Response Variable?

Science is in the business of finding cause-effect relationships between things in the natural world—discovering how changes in one quantity cause changes in another. The quantities that scientists record and manipulate are called variables. Scientists elucidate the causal structure of the world by manipulating variables to see how changes in one variable affect changes in other variables. In the context of scientific experimentation, there are two main kinds of variables: The independent variable is the parameter that is changed by the scientist to...

NO2 (Nitrogen Dioxide) Lewis Dot Structure

Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) is a covalent compound that is composed of a central nitrogen atom single bonded to an oxygen atom and a double bond with another oxygen atom.  At room temperatures, nitrogen dioxide is a reddish-brown gas that has a density of 1.8 g/dm3. It is slightly toxic to humans, on account of its tendency to react in the human body and produce reactive species of nitrogen and oxygen, which can damage internal structures. Nitrogen dioxide does not have...

What Is The Charge Of CO3?

The substance with the chemical formula CO3 goes by the name carbonate. Carbonate is made of 1 atom of carbon and 3 atoms of oxygen and has an electric charge of −2. This negative charge means that a single ion of carbonate has 2 more electrons than protons. Carbonate is a flexible polyatomic ion and is characterized by its tendency to form salt compounds with alkali and alkali earth metals. Carbonate compounds are the main component of several types of sedimentary rock, the most...
