Srinivasa Kadamati Bio 311C Homework #1 1. Cell theory explains the ability for us to identify patient zero because one of its fundamental principles states that new cells can only be created from existing cells. This means that the individuals who were infected later were infected with bacteria that were created from original existing bacteria, and that existing bacteria was created from earlier existing bacteria, and so forth. Therefore, there must have been an original bacterial cell which can be identified as patient zero otherwise these newer bacteria would not exist. 2. No they probably did not because doing so would not provide the most accurate data or results from observation, thus they would not be able to reach a credible conclusion. For accurate data and a more credible conclusion, they should and probably did use lots of giraffes to produce data and observations that are more accurate and more representative of the entire population of giraffes. Using more than one male and female giraffe represent using more trials in an experiment, which is known to give more

Unformatted text preview: accurate results. Lastly, using only one female and male giraffe is not a good idea since these two might be rare cases or exceptions to the general conclusion that describes all giraffes as a whole. 3. The reason that these elements (also known as Noble Gases) do not form larger molecules is because all of their electrons are already paired. For a larger molecule to form, there needs to be valence electrons which are readily available to form ionic or covalent bonds with other elements / molecules. 4. Every water molecule can form Hydrogen bonds with up to 4 other water molecules. This is because the oxygen in each water molecule has two lone pairs, allowing it to form bonds with 2 more water molecules, and each hydrogen in the water molecule can form a bond with another water molecule and because there are two hydrogen atoms in a water molecule, a total of 4 bonds with other water molecules can be formed. 5....
