3.I just need someone to look over my paper for anatomy and to just let me know what I need
t or add. I'll attach the questions, my rubric, as well as my answers I made. It would really help me out please.
1.) Choose two somatosensory receptors. Please include a description of each receptor, what they sense, and which part of the brain processes the information from the receptor.
2.) Provide a discussion of the thyroid gland. Include the following:
Description of the thyroid gland's structure and location.
Description of the cells of the thyroid gland.
Description of the hormones secreted by the thyroid gland and their functions.
Description of how thyroid hormones are controlled by hormones secreted by the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary gland.
Description of how the feedback system works in the cases of high or low thyroid hormone levels.
3. Describe the cardiac cycle. Include descriptions of the 3 phases, the pressure changes in each of the heart's chambers, valves are open and closed, and blood flows during each step.
My answer: 1.) Exteroceptor - receives external stimuli from outside of the body. An example, the skin (Thermoreceptors) detects the temperature of the outside area of the body.
Interceptor - receives stimuli from inside of the body. An example would be blood pressure as well as blood oxygen levels.
2.) Thyroid Gland is located near the front lower part of the neck, beneath Adam's apple. Its structure includes Thyroid Epithelial that form follicles filled with colloid - a protein-rich reservoir of the materials needed for thyroid hormone production. The cells are responsible for releasing hormones that control metabolism (Energy levels). The thyroid gland releases triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones regulate weight, energy levels, internal temperature, skin, and growth. When the hypothalamus and pituitary function well, they can detect when hormone levels are low, which causes them to produce more TRH and TSH, which stimulates the thyroid to produce hormones. When the hormone levels exceed their limit, they then have less TRH and TSH, which results in reduced hormone production by the thyroid. Feedback is when a product feeds back into its initial cycle. The Feedback includes both positive and negative feedback. Positive Feedback is when a product provides back to increase production: an example, milk production by a mother for her baby. As the baby suckles, nerve messages from the nipple cause the pituitary gland to secrete prolactin. Prolactin, in turn, stimulates the mammary glands to produce milk, so the baby suckles more. Which causes more prolactin to be secreted and more milk to is made. Negative Feedback is when a product feeds back decreases production; it brings down show if they increase past their limit. It also controls insulin secretion by the pancreas.
3.) The Cardiac Cycle takes place from the beginning of a heartbeat to the next. It contains two periods: One is when the heart muscle relaxes and refills with blood, called diastole, following a time when it begins contraction and pumping of blood, systole. Once emptied, the heart then relaxes and expands to receive another inrush of blood coming back from the lungs and other areas of the body. The atrioventricular valves remain open while the semilunar valves are closed. During the middle part of the diastole, a small amount of blood flows into the ventricles. The blood flows from the veins and passes the atria fills the ventricles. The pressure in both ventricles is close to zero as a result.
5.Suppose the heights of 18-year-old men are approximately normally distributed, with mean 65 inches and standard deviation 6 inches.
nd standard deviation 6 inches.
A button hyperlink to the SALT program that reads: Use SALT.
(a) What is the probability that an 18-year-old man selected at random is between 64 and 66 inches tall? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
Correct: Your answer is correct.
(b) If a random sample of seven 18-year-old men is selected, what is the probability that the mean height x is between 64 and 66 inches? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect.
(c) Compare your answers to parts (a) and (b). Is the probability in part (b) much higher? Why would you expect this?
The probability in part (b) is much higher because the standard deviation is smaller for the x distribution.
The probability in part (b) is much higher because the standard deviation is larger for the x distribution.
The probability in part (b) is much higher because the mean is smaller for the x distribution.
The probability in part (b) is much higher because the mean is larger for the x distribution.
The probability in part (b) is much lower because the standard deviation is smaller for the x distribution.
6.I need answers on 2 questions based on the text of Waltz, Susan. "Reclaiming and Rebuilding the History of the
ory of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights." Third World Quarterly 23, no. 3 (2002): 437-48. (in the file attached) This are the questions:
Question 1 Waltz discusses four political myths about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and demonstrates they are misleading. What is her main argument? In your answer identify the hypothesis that Waltz targets.
Question 2 Does Waltz discredit this hypothesis or not? Keep in mind that a hypothesis aims to explain something.
7.1) Employees in 2012 paid 4.2% of their gross wages towards social security (FICA tax), while employers paid another 6.2%.
ers paid another 6.2%. How much will someone earning $34,000 a year pay towards social security out of their gross wages?
2) The population of a town increased from 3350 in 2005 to 4800 in 2010. Find the absolute and relative (percent) increase.
3)A company's sales in Seattle were $400,000 in 2012, while their sales in Portland were $295,000 for the same year. Complete the following statements:
a. Seattle's sales were
% larger than Portland's.
b. Portland sales were
% smaller than Seattle's.
c. Portland sales were
% of Seattle's.
4) A store has clearance items that have been marked down by 55%. They are having a sale, advertising an additional 30% off clearance items. What percent of the original price do you end up paying?
5) A friend has a 83% average before the final exam for a course. That score includes everything but the final, which counts for 15% of the course grade.
What is the best course grade your friend can earn?
What is the minimum score your friend would need on the final to earn a 75% for the course?
Give answers accurate to at least one decimal place.
6) A car is driving at 50 kilometers per hour. How far, in meters, does it travel in 3 seconds?
Give your answer to the nearest meter.
8.I'm checking my answers for a practice ACT exam I did, and I am confused by this question on probability...
"As part of a probability experiment, Elliott is to answer 4 multiple-choice questions. For each question, there are 3 possible answers, only 1 of which is correct. If Elliott randomly and independently answers each question, what is the probability that he will answer the 4 questions correctly?"
Solving the question I keep getting 1/256. My reasoning is that each question has a 1/4 chance of being right if you guessed, so 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/256.
But my answer choices are as follows, with the correct answer being E:
Am I missing something? Or am I just completely solving this wrong?
