How can you distinguish between living organisms and nonliving materials in a water sample?
Basic characteristics that distinguish living and non living things are many.They include 1 cells , 2 DNA or genetic material , 3 reproduction , 4 metabolism , 5 use of energy… , 6 sensitivity , 7 responsiveness and others .
Answer You have eucaryotic procaryotic and viral cells. Procaryotic cells are primitive cells with hardly any organelles. eucaryotic cell are modern living c…ell that exist in our bodies that have many organelles Now, Viruses have no organelles ,they are a non living antigen which is reconized by the boby as foreign, These viruses can take over a good eucaryotic cell in the body and then take over and multiply its own DNA but without the good cell It cannot multiply.
Ability to move independently and ability to reproduce.
Living organisms must be able to grow, to adapt to their environment, to reproduce, and to use energy. They must also have to be composed of cells.
A soil sample contains living and nonliving materials. Which material was once living?
What is answer in Explain the difference between living organisms dead organisms and nonliving things?
1-Living organism are things that have not yet died. They will permanently transform into dead organisms at some point. 2-Dead organism were once alive (living organisms) an…d are no longer living. They never will be again. 3-Non-living things are things which never were alive. They never will be. 1-You are a living organism, and so is my cat. Organisms (like you and the cat) can go up to someone and scratch them if you please. They may also eat/drink and think and walk. They can move by themselves. All animals/insects/germs etc. are living things. Organisms have a mind of they're own. They will die at some point though, but that's a whole different party. 2-Wooden furniture would be a dead organism. So is bacon and that dead spider on the basement floor. Or take my grandmother who died a year ago of a heart attack. Alive one day, died the next. She's never coming back to life. 3-A rock is a nonliving thing. As well as a pencil. These two objects were never alive, or ever will. Want me to prove it? They do not eat, move by themselves or reproduce etc. Basically they DO NOT have a mind of their own, never did, never will
All things that are living hare certain characteristics. These are: Metabolism (taking in and using energy, and getting rid of waste) Reproduction (creat…ing more of itself, offspring) Movement (can be walking or drawing energy, etc.) Adaptation (changing based on a changing environment) Response to Stimuli (doing something involuntarily based on something. example: being hungry=stimulus eating=respose)
living things are called biotic and non living aviotic ecosystem
What is the study of relationships between organisms and living and nonliving factors in the environment?
How do you determine if something is living or nonliving and what are some qualities of living organisms and like how are they distinguished from nonliving things?
You can determine if something is living or nonliving by these simple things: 1. They have to be able to reproduce, either asexually or sexually. 2. They have to be able to r…espond to stimuli. 3. They have to have cells, either as a unicellular organism or as a multicellular organism. 4. They have to grow and develop. 5. They have to have homeostasis. This means that they can maintain their own body temperature. Think of this as a thermometer for the body. 6. The last thing is that all living things also have to be able to do is move.
nonliving , but has stuff that are living inside such as inscet's ,arthropods; bacteria; cicada killers ; (insects such as) nematodes; protozoa such as amoebae. but generally …speaking . NO. oil its self is not .Donnieehh prince (face book) -
Viruses are not an organism at all. They are not alive. They are nonliving. They are like cockle burrs that "grab" hold of your clothing or a dog’s coat. They are hijackers…. Once they get attached to the cell of a living cell, they can take it over and "make" the living cell produce virus particles instead of cell parts. These particles can assemble into more viruses and then they break out of the cell (killing it) and begin the process again. They cannot make more viruses on their own.
Materials that are "organic" have been created by living things, such as leaves, wood, cotton cloth, and coral. In some cases, they may consist of compounds that also exist in…organically, such as the calcium carbonate in seashells.
Yes. Given the proper mixtures of carbon dioxide, water, ammonia, etc., you can add heat or an electric spark (energy), and get stable organic molecules, such as amino acids q…uite easily. Such is an example of the creation of organic material through nonliving means.
