#funscience #Sciencepedia #Topic of the day #Nutrition #Saprophytic Nutrition In saprophytic nutrition the #organisms obtain their #food from #dead and #decaying #organic matter of dead #plants, dead #animals and other #decomposing organic matter. And the organisms which obtain their food from dead and decaying organic matter of dead plants, dead animals and other organic matter are called saprophytes. Fungi, bread #mould, some #protists and many #bacteria are saprophytic in nutrition. In this type, the saprophytic organisms like fungi release #digestive #enzymes in their surrounding medium to convert the complex organic molecules such as sugars in simple forms such as #glucose. This simple food is then absorbed through the body surface, and utilized for various activities by #fungus. - See more at: http://www.funscience.in/study-zone/Biology/Nutrition/SaprophyticNutrition.php
#funscience #Sciencepedia #Topic of the day #Nutrition #Holozoic Nutrition A #heterotrophic #organism can obtain its #food from other organisms in following three ways: 1.Holozoic nutrition 2.#Saprophytic nutrition 3.#Parasitic nutrition Holozoic nutrition Holozoic nutrition takes place in those organisms which take #solid or #liquid food through the #mouth inside their #body Examples of organisms having holozoic mode of nutrition are #human #beings, #dog, #cat, #lion, #deer, #crow, #frog and #Digestion #process of a #Humanfish etc. This #process takes place in following steps: 1. #Ingestion The process of taking food inside the body is called ingestion. 2. #Digestion In digestion the #ingested food is converted into simple form with the help of digestive #enzymes. 3. Absorption In this stage the food digested in second step is absorbed into the #cells of #body. 4. #Assimilation Assimilation is the process of utilizing the food absorbed in third step by various cells of the body. 5. #Egestion Egestion is the final step of holozoic nutrition in which the undigested food is removed from the body. - See more at: http://www.funscience.in/study-zone/Biology/Nutrition/HolozoicNutrition.php
#funscience #Sciencepedia #Topic of the day #Autotrophic #Nutrition All the #organisms do not have same mode of nutrition, i.e. different organisms have different methods of obtaining and utilizing #food. Based on the mode of nutrition, all the living organisms can be classified in two groups: 1. Autotrophic and 2. #Heterotrophic Autotrophic nutrition Autotrophic Nutritional #Plant The term ‘#autotroph’ consists of two words ‘#auto’ and ‘#troph’. ‘Auto’ means ‘#self’ and ‘troph’ means ‘nutrition’. So , in autotrophic mode of nutrition the food is manufactured by the organism itself in the presence of #sunlight by taking in #raw #materials such as #carbon #dioxide or #water from the #surrounding All the green plants, blue green #algae and autotrophic bacteria have autotrophic mode of nutrition. Such organisms which can make their own food in the presence of sunlight by taking carbon dioxide and water from their surroundings are called autotrophs. Green plants and autotrophic #bacteria are the examples of autotrophs. These organisms contain a green colouring pigment called #chlorophyll which is capable of trapping #solar #energy. This solar energy is then used by plants to synthesize food in the form of starch by combining carbon dioxide and water taken from the surrounding by the process of photosynthesis. It should be noted that green plants are also called #producers because they prepare or produce their own food from carbon dioxide and water by using sunlight. - See more at: http://www.funscience.in/study-zone/Biology/Nutrition/AutotrophicNutrition.php
#funscience.in #Sciencepedia #Topic of the day #Nutrition All the #living #organisms need #food to get #energy to carry out their #activities, #growth and #repair. #Plants make their food by utilizing the #solar energy by the process of #photosynthesis. But, #animals depend on plants directly or indirectly for their food. Food which gives nutrition The process of taking food and utilizing it for growth, providing energy to the living #cells to carry out their activities and #repair is called nutrition. We know that food contains many different useful #substances, such as #proteins, #carbohydrates, #fats, #vitamins and #minerals. All these components of food are called #nutrient. Actually, the term ‘nutrition’ is derived from the word ‘nutrient’. A nutrient can be defined as a substance which provides nutrition - See more at: http://www.funscience.in/study-zone/Biology/Nutrition/Nutrition.php

#funscience #puzzle of the day.. #digital #king A ruthless king has a cellar of 1,000 bottles of very expensive wine. An assassin infiltrates the wine cellar to poison the wine. Fortunately the king’s guards catch the plotter after she has poisoned only one bottle. Unfortunately, the guards don’t know which one of the bottles is poisoned. The poison is so strong that no amount of dilution will make it safe to drink. Furthermore, it takes one month to have an effect. The ruthless king decides he will get some of the prisoners in his vast dungeons to test the wine. Being an intelligent, if ruthless, king, he knows he needs to sacrifice fewer than 10 prisoners and know for a certainty which one of the wine bottles was poisoned. How does he know that?

A farmer is standing on one bank of a river, with a fox, a chicken, and a bag of grain. He needs to get to the other side of the river, taking the fox, the chicken, and the grain with him. However, the boat used to cross the river is only large enough to carry the farmer and one of the things he needs to take with him, so he will need to make several trips in order to get everything across. In addition, he cannot leave the fox unattended with the chicken, or else the fox will eat the chicken; and he cannot leave the chicken unattended with the grain, or else the chicken will eat the grain. The fox is not particularly partial to grain and may be left alone with it. How can the farmer get everything across the river without anything being eaten?

Did you ever notice that drops of water are always spherical in shape? Have you ever seen insects floating over surface of water? These phenomenon takes place due to an interesting property of liquids called surface tension. Surface tension may be defined as the inward forces of attraction that act on the surface of a liquid and help to reduce the surface area of that liquid. Surface tension helps the liquid drops to maintain spherical shape. You may assume surface tension as an invisible stretchable film surrounding that liquid.
DRAGON VERSUS KNIGHT A dragon and a knight are trapped on a desert island. This island has seven poisoned wells, numbered 1 to 7. If they drink from a well, they can save themselves only by drinking from a higher number well within a few minutes’ time.Well 7 is located at the top of a high mountain, so only the dragon can reach it. In other words, if the dragon drinks from well 4, it will die unless it has a cup of poison from wells 5 to 7. The same is true of the knight. One day they decide that the island isn’t big enough for the two of them, and they have a duel. Both the knight and dragon are rational creatures. Each of them brings a cup of water to the duel, they exchange cups, and both drink the contents of the cup brought by his adversary. After the duel, the knight lives and the dragon dies. What strategy did the knight use to defeat the dragon?
