    Scientific knowledge is both durable and open to change. In your own words, explain why scientific knowledge may be open to change. Include two examples where this might occur." This is asking you to explain why some things in science can be added to or changed. For example, Newton discovered the concept of gravity. When you let go of something, it falls to the ground because of gravity. However, later in time, Einstein added that gravity is a result of the curvature of space-time. See how the idea of gravity changed because one person discovered it and another person added to it? Even though everyone knew about gravity because of Newton, people understood gravity better because of Einstein. The second question: "Scientists have a theory about the shape of the Earth's surface that is accepted worldwide. A group of scientists have proposed a new theory about the shape of Earth's surface. In your own words, explain the impact of the proposed theory on science" Okay, first I'll explain what this question is telling you. Scientists have an idea about the shape of Earth's surface and scientists all over the world accept that this theory is probably true. But now, other scientists have a different idea about the shape of the Earth's surface. So that means scientists are going to have to study what they already know about the shape of the Earth's surface and try to figure out with theory is more true. The question wants to know what you think this means for science. Is it a good thing? Will it change what we know about how the world works? Will it change what we know about the Ozone layer? Will it change what we know about the weather? How do you think this affects science?

    did you have this question? Scientists earlier believed that the lowest measurable temperature is the freezing point of ice. However, modern scientists believe that temperatures below the freezing point of ice can also exist. What best accounts for these different opinions? A. scientists propose contradictory ideas to include all possibilities B. scientists come up with different hypotheses without enough evidence C. scientists propose different ideas to avoid repetition of scientific knowledge D. scientists having different interests may interpret the same data in different ways
