Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, organisms doing respiration take in oxygen and produce carbon dioxide, right? And organisms doing photosynthesis take in carbon dioxide and produce oxygen?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. Would you like me to explain my understanding of the Q, too?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what would the graph look like if the two were exactly in balance?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(and nothing else was changing the amount of carbon dioxide present)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A balance between oxygen/photosynthesis/respiration?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't the graph just be a straight line?

whpalmer4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we would have a horizontal line, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1glad we are in agreement. But we don't have a horizontal line, we have something that is gradually increasing, and not as a straight line, either. What does that suggest to you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It means that they are unbalanced, correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or one is more than the other

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes. and is the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere increasing or decreasing?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Definitely Increasing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if we want to keep the carbon dioxide concentration about the same, do we need to plant more forests, or chop them down?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Plant more forests because they produce oxygen and take in CO2 via photosynthesis.

whpalmer4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right. there are some who think we should repeatedly plant forests and chop them down, burying the results, but that seems a bit impractical to me!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, looking at the graph, which class of organism is expanding more rapidly?

whpalmer4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1relative to the other, I guess

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would be whatever organism that produces carbon dioxide. (What is their class called?)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Aren't there other factors such as pollution that contribute to the rapid increase of Co2 in the atmosphere though?

whpalmer4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, but the problem asks for the relationship between the respiring and photosynthesizing organisms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. Would you like me to share my notes with you on this lesson? You can use it as a reference to your answers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, it looks to me like the plants are not keeping up with the carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere. sure, go ahead...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0…I have very limited time to complete this homework assignment and I'm not sure if you're reading the notes or multitasking @whpalmer4 :) I don't mean to have that come out as rude or disrespectful because everything you've told me so far has truly helped me understand the concept a little better.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, a bit of both. I think the graph shows that the photoautotrophs are not keeping up with the amount of carbon dioxide being produced. I don't know what to conclude from the graph about the effects, other than something will change — perhaps the plant life is going to grow like crazy in the CO2 rich air, but it seems like that probably isn't it (it's not like they are stripping the atmosphere of all of its CO2 now, right?) And my understanding is cyanobacteria produce their energy by photosynthesis, so if their population goes up, the carbon dioxide concentration curve should stop increasing as rapidly as it is That's about all I got for you...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you have anything to add to this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or do you agree/disagree? What are your thoughts? @whpalmer4

whpalmer4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, I don't, other than to caution that you might have to go pretty far to get to the point where either class had trouble breathing...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0True, and it is around a specific area anyway. But I think they're asking worstcase scenarios? I'll be sure to mention that, too. Thank you so much for your help! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1worth about as much as you paid for it, I fear :)
