Activity: to classify animals according to their feeding habits [lo 2.2]

(i) Consumers of food (animals) are also grouped according to their eating habits:

Macro-consumers include:

Herbivores (plant eaters), e.g. whales and goats

Carnivores (meat eaters), e.g. lions and snakes

Omnivores (plant and meat eaters), e.g. humans and rats

  • An organism is an individual plant or animal.
  • Most animals spend the greatest part of the day searching for food and eating!
  • Population is a group of individuals from a species living together in a certain area, e.g. Yellowwood trees, squirrels, fruit flies, marigolds and yellowfish.
  • The teeth, paws, nose and ears of every animal are specially adapted to what it eats (especially the jaws, mouth and teeth!)


Learning Outcome 2: The learner will know and be able to interpret and apply scientific, technological and environmental knowledge.

Assessment Standard 2.2: We know this when the learner categorises information.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
