You also learned about cellular metabolism and what the human body uses as a fuel source. This all seems simple at first glance; however, it can be difficult to determine whether or not we are getting what our body needs. Even when we know what our body needs, it becomes even more difficult to make sure we are supplying our body with those needs. The car you drive most probably requires gasoline in order to function properly. When you need to go somewhere, you make sure you have enough gasoline in the tank to reach your destination. If you do not, you probably stop at a gas station and fill your car’s tank with gas. You do not pour cola in the tank or jelly donuts; you put gas because that is what it needs. Why do we put cola and jelly donuts in our bodies when we do not need them? Often time, it is difficult to determine what is in the foods that we eat. Sometimes it is hard to determine if the food contains the correct nutrients or processed foods that our body does not need. This lab exercise will help you learn how to read nutritional labels and determine what your body needs to function properly.Objectives1. Analyze nutritional information based on what the body needs to function properly.2. Calculate BMR, BMI, and caloric burn.MaterialsYou will not need any extra materials other than your textbook and your computer (with internet access) to complete this lab.Directions· Type or paste all answers directly on this data sheet.· Use the following nutritional label and answer the questions that follow.

Save the document using your last name and student ID. Once complete, upload your assignment and submit your File Response Plant TranspirationUnit VIII AssessmentIntroductionIf you have not already, you or someone you know will try to grow avariety of plants either inside your house or outside in a garden. What type of soil do you need? How often should you water the plants? Should you plant them in full sun? Why do some plants need less water and some more? These are questions that many people haveabout plants. In this activity, you will have a chance to manipulate different variables tosee how much water some plants use and how much some lose through transpiration.Objectives1. Conduct virtual experiments to determine factors that affect transpiration.2. Compare and contrast sustainable and unsustainable farming practices.MaterialsComputer with internet accessDirections1.

Each question is worth 2 points for a total of20 points.1. What are the three different variables that you tested?2. State your question.3. State your hypothesis.4. Describe the process of transpiration.5. What environmental factors that you tested increased the rate of transpiration? Was the rate of transpiration increased for all plants tested?6. Did any of the environmental factors (heat, light, or wind) increase the transpiration rate more than the others? Why?7. Which species of plants that you tested had the highest transpiration rates? Why do you think different species of plants transpire at different rates?8. What is your conclusion?9. Did your results support your hypothesis?10.State another question about transpiration that you would like to have answered that you did not answer in this lab.Results Table 10 points***You should include data for 8 different plants. Make sure you reset the lab (upper right corner) to receive 4 more plants.*** Amount of water transpired after 1 hour (mL)PlantNormalFanHeaterLampQuestion 11 is an extended response question and should be at least 200 words. Total: 20 points11. You want to reduce the amount of money that you are spending at the grocery store. You and your family decide to plant a small garden to provide a variety of foods. Since you completed the activity above, you know that plants require certain nutrients in order to survive. Read the information in the textbook concerning the future of agriculture (pages 586 – 592). What are some methods that you would implement into your garden? What would you try to avoid?
