Topic: **Homework assist****Question:**
its due on Monday, and I really need help with it, I've managed to do some, but I'm stuck on the rest. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
1) How does the excretion of nitrogenous waste as uric acid assist the budgerigar to maintain water balance in arid regions?
5) Identify the net water movement (gain or loss) by osmosis in fish in: freshwater and salt water.
9) Describe problems of maintaining water balance for: a freshwater fish and seawater fish.

1) uric acid does not require the excretion of much water to dilute the waste. If the organism excreted urea, more water would have to be used and in an arid region water is difficult to find. Hence, it helps the organism retain water thus maintaining homeostasis. 5) This one is easy. Osmosis is movement of water from an area of high concentration to one of lower concentration. Freshwater will have a higher concentration of water (lower concentration of solute or salt) than the fish. Hence, the net movement of water will be into the fish. The opposite is true in salt water. 9) Not sure how much detail your professor wants on this one. The last answer will help you understand the problem though. The freshwater fish has trouble expelling all the water as he is receiving a higher concentration of water than is optimum for his body. The opposite is true of seawater fish.

you take italian in eighth grade? I'm in 10th grade, my teachers don't like giving us weekend HW, sometimes I get math though. last weekend I made a cake for a project, it took like six hours, but I think I had too much fun with it to count it I don't have any this weekend

Ugh, yeah. I have to read a couple chapters for Civic Education and answer questions, write a paper for AP Lang (although it should be relatively easy), read a section and do problems in Pre-Calc, and read something and take notes for Advanced Bio. How long it will take depends on how much effort I put into it. If I do it last minute and just try to get it done right away, I can probably do it in an hour and a half or less. If I take my time, it could be 3+ hours.

Yes, I've got tons :( I've got a art project on Francis Bacon Two pieces of science course work on health and safety I've got to get my food tech ingredients (We're making flapjacks!) I've got to find a news paper article about diversity in Britain I have two pieces of Maths Something for food tech about why we need water in our body Writing a poem for guidance Answer about 7 weeks worth of questions for english I don't know how long this will take me, more than a day though. I'm in Year 9 (UK) which I think would be 8th grade

Let me see... I have 600 pages of reading in Geography, Government, Mythology (most of it is playing catch up...) 7 hours I have spanish homework- reading answering questions, doing grammar and vocab activities (1 hour) I have a geography and government test to study for (4 hours) I have an online quiz that goes with a reading assignment (45 minutes) So almost 13 hours of homework-- I am in freshmen year of college

1. Condense and then write in exponential form a) log((x - 1)/(x + 1)) = 1 --> 10 = (x - 1)/(x + 1) --> 10x + 10 = x - 1 --> 9x =-11 --> x = -11/9 b) e^-1.147 = x c) ln(x) = ln[(8^(2/3) * 9^(1/2))/6] --> ln (x) = ln((4 * 3)/6) = ln(2) --> x = 2 d)log5[x(x - 4)] = log5 (21) --> x(x - 4) = 21 --> x^2 - 4x - 21 = 0 --> (x - 7)(x + 3) = 0 --> x = 7 or -3 but x = -3 is extraneous so x = 7 e) log4(3x/(x^2 -1)) = log4(2) --> 3x/(x^2 - 1) = 2 --> 3x = 2x^2 - 2 --> 0 = 2x^2 - 3x - 2 --> (2x + 1)(x - 2) = 0 --> x = -1/2 or 2 and -1/2 is extraneous, x = 2 2. a) equate exponents since the base is the same 7x + 1 = 4x - 5 --> 3x = -6 --> x = -2 b) Rewrite as 2^(3x) = 2^(x - 6) --> 3x = x - 6 --> 2x = -6 --> x = -3 c) log(3^(x + 2)) = log(5) --> (x + 2)log(3) = log(5) log(3)x + 2log(3) = log(5) --> log(3) x = log(5) - 2log(3) --> x = [log(5) - 2log(3)]/log(3) d) 2^(2x) = 2^(3x + 4) --> 2x = 3x + 4 --> -x = 4 --> x = -4 e) ln(e^(x - 6)) = e^3.5 --> x - 6 = e^3.5 --> x = 6 + e^3.5 3.Let x be a side of the base and y be the length of the box 32 = x^2 * y --> y = 32/x^2 cost = 0.01x^2 + 0.03x^2 + 4(0.02)(xy) cost = 0.03x^2 + 0.08(x(32/x^2)) cost = 0.03x^2 + 2.56/x derivative of cost --> 0.06x - 2.56/x^2 = 0 --> 0.06x^3 = 2.56 --> x^3 = 42.60 --> x is about 3.49 second derivative --> 0.06 + 2.56/x^3 > 0 for all x in domain --> minimum cost Dimensions for the base are 3.49 inches by 3.49 inches and the length is 2.63 in
