Solution 1
Answer: necessary and sufficient

When we have a factor, it will always cause a disease. This sentence shows that the factor is sufficient. If you have the factor, you will have the disease.
The disease cannot occur without that factor. This sentence shows that the factor is necessary. If you don't have the factor, you will not have the disease.

What size (internal diameter) endotracheal tube should be used to intubate a newborn with an estimated gestational age of 26 weeks (estimated birth weight of 800 g)?
Solution 1
The size of endotracheal tube that should be used to intubate a new born with an estimated gestational age of 26 weeks is 2.5 mm (internal diameter).  An endotracheal tube serves as open passage through the upper airway. The purpose of endotracheal intubation is to permit air to pass freely to and from the lungs inorder to ventrate the lungs.

The only property listed that is not a characteristic of gases is that they have very high density. Gases are easily compressible, they have no definite shape or volume, they expand to fill their container, they occupy more space compared to liquids and solids since their molecules are far apart due to weak intermolecular forces between the molecules.

What is critical to the synthesis of thyroxin, the hormone that controls the rate of oxygen use by cells, and whose deficiency causes the condition known as goiter?
Solution 1
I believe that the mineral iodine is critical to the synthesis of thyroxine.  The hormone thyroxine is secreted in to the blood stream by thryroid hormone. It plays an important role in heart and digestive function, metabolism, brain development, bone health, and muscle control. This means it affects almost all of the body's systems and thus proper levels are vital for health.

Question
What are the resources the human body needs to survive? what role does food play in the human body? what role does water play in the human body? what role does oxygen play in the human body? what human body systems work to create, process, or distribute the body's main power sources? how do personal factors and environmental factors impact the body's ability to survive without air, food, or water?
Solution 1
1. The resources the human body needs to survive include food, water, and oxygen. Food includes macro-molecules, as well as vitamins and minerals. Water- can be taken in through foods or drinks, 3/4 of the body is water and oxygen is the air around us is about 20% oxygen and the gas humans need to survive. 

2. The role that food play in the human body depends on the type of food; (there are three types of food, carbohydrates, lipids and proteins). Carbohydrates act as a quick source of energy, lipids are long term source of energy, cushioning of organs, and also makes up much of the brain. Proteins mainly build and repair body tissues.

3. The role of water in the human body includes;
Dissolves other materials and allows them to flow in the blood, it gives the cells structure, just the right amount needed to prevent shrinking and exploding, allows food to digest and pass through the intestinal walls in the blood stream, carry waste products out of the body in the urine and regulating homeostasis of body temperature by evaporating and sweating. 

4. The role of oxygen in the human body is that it allows human to bur food, creating energy through the process of respiration. Each cell in the body needs oxygen to survive. Cells turn glucose and oxygen into energy (ATP) within their mitochondria through cellular respiration process. Therefore; without oxygen, food can not be processed and energy won't be made.

5. The human body systems that work together to create, process or distribute the body's main power sources include; the digestive system and the cardiovascular system, Food is taken through the digestive system, passes through cardiovascular system for the distribution to all cells where its let into the cells by insulin and processed within the mitochondria. Also the respiratory system and cardiovascular system, Oxygen is taken through the respiratory system, and passes to the cardiovascular system for distribution to all cells, where its processed within the mitochondria. Water goes through digestive system, cardiovascular system and the urinary system to remove wastes and also maintain homeostasis.

6. Personal factors and environmental factors impact the body's ability to survive without air, food or water. Environmental factors include the presence of dangerous animals, temperature of air, humidity of air, presence of protective clothing among others. Personal factors on the other hand include; Fitness level, age, will to survive, amount of fat, genes, metabolism, etc.

Question
The half life of Carbon 14 is 5500 years. How many years will pass for a 30 gram sample to reach 3.75 grams
Solution 1
Half life is the time taken by a radioactive isotope to decay by half of its original mass. In this case the half life of carbon-14 is 5500 years. 
The original mass is 30 g and the new mass is 3.75 g. 
New mass = Original mass × (1/2)^n, where n is the number of half lives; 
3.75 = 30 × (1/2)^n
 1/8 = (1/2)^n
 n = 3 
Thus, the time taken will be; 3 × 5500 = 16500 years.

The study of evolutionary relationships among organisms is called - phylogeny or phylogenetics

Phylogenetics

is the study of the evolutionary relationships among organisms

  • The evolutionary relationship refers to the similarities of the living organisms evolved from the common ancestors in
  1. structure,
  2. breeding behavior,
  3. geographical distribution,
  4. chromosomes,
  5. biochemistry
  • It shows how closely related two organisms are in evolution.

Thus, the study of evolutionary relationships among organisms is called - phylogeny or phylogenetics

Solution 1
The three domain system divides organisms into groups based on similarities in their ribosomal RNA. The three domains in the three domain system are the archaea, eukarya and the bacteria. The domains Archaea and bacteria are all prokaryotic microorganisms, or single-celled organisms whose cells have no nucleus. Domain Eukarya on the other hand has organisms whose cells have nucleus.
