Would it be safe to say that, Europeans colonised the world because of industrialisation. As only then they had to get raw materials for new industries and create artificial markets in the colonies by taxing local production? So now that they don't have those colonies how are they still able to...
Is it alright to mess up the brain chemicals by taking all these drugs?
The brain might get confused into believing that there are higher levels of such chemicals and stop its own natural production. This might cause reduced cognition, memory etc. during periods of non-use
Can any action be classified as good or bad?
Like say, two people equally good are vying for a job. The manager chooses A instead of B, it is good for A but bad for B isn't it?
Also if one wanted to create some good, like say set up and industry to give jobs to the local populace he has to...
I'm India, and I'd like to know if I pass USMLE, and study in the US. Will I be allowed to practice medicine over there after my education or should I have to come back to India then apply for visa again and then come to US inorder to practice?
But if a person ate lots of fruits, due to rapid accumulation of ATP, NADH the body will switch to lipogenesis. This will happen even before the utilsation of that ATP
However if a person took more glucose, due to regulation of glucose utilisation, the rate of formation of ATP will be slower...
A wild guess:
Maybe there's not much space for all that HCO3- in the RBC, its m.wt. being 61 and for Cl- it is 35 ?
A better guess I think would be the altered pH of the RBC cytosol due to HCO3- accumulating in it causes it to become more basic?
Maybe the HCO3- may try to displace the H+ from...
I read in Harper's Illustrated Biochemistry, that since fruits have fructose and fructose isn't all that well regulated as glucose metabolism they can make you overweight!
Are there any studies that prove/disprove these?
For example, fructose can be metabolised without regulation and form...
In my physiology examination, I came across this question:
Find the Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR), when
Urine Concentration of Urea (U) = 70 (I don't remember the exact values, but it is of no importance),
Urine flow rate (V) = 1ml/min
Blood level of Urea = 20 ( or something)
Lesser of trigonometry and calculus
Branch which has less trig and calculus? I'm afraid of those two, coz they(in my school, in India) give u an equation and for no apparent reason u multiply by something, divide by something, separate the term into two, and viola u get the answer. Its too...
What does an MBA graduate do?
I've always wondered that coz, if u get an MBA from Indian Institute of Management u get a salary of like Rs.1 crore(I think that's roughly USD250,000. Not sure if that's a high salary in US but definitely high according to Indian standards ).
What do they...
Electro magnetic Induction problem. Simple one, but please check wehre I am wrong.
A magnet moving down, goes through a coil and exits it below. Plot the graph showing variation of induced emf in coil with time.
emf = - Flux/Time
During qualitative analysis of Barium, Strontium, Calcium, why do we use NH4CO3, NH4OH, NH4Cl. Even if we were to apply common ion effect, two NH4+ ions are enough right? What is the need for third one?
Why are the tuition fees in colleges so high in US, UK? (>$20000)
The people at education fairs tell me that you can work part time and pay a substantial part. I can't believe that by working part time I can pay my tuition while my full time working father cant. Can you really pay the tuition...
My book says self pollination maintains the parental characters or purity of the race indefinitely and is used to maintain pure lines for hybridization experiments.
How can that be true. Coz, meiosis takes place in micro & mega spore mother cells. So there is crossing over which will lead to...
Basically in India, we now have the Forward castes and Backward castes. The forwards basically have the rich folks/ educated/ well off (of course there are some poor there too). The backward castes were full of suppressed people. Not allowed to even cast their shadows on the FCs coz even their...
While registering for the SAT exam I had the option to send my SAT scores to 4 colleges. I have not yet started applying for college, so can I send my SAT scores to any college even though the college doesn't know that I'm applying?
If 6.8 * 10-4 is ionisation constant(IC) of HF, what is the IC of its conjugate base.
HF +H2O -----> H3O+ +F-
So F- is the conjugate base(CB)
I figured the IC of CB would be the reciprocal of IC of HF. But the answer given is the same but multiplied by Ionic product of water i.e. 10-14
What exactly is electromagnetic flux?
In wikipedia I read it is the " surface integral of a vector field" what is a vector field?
Is it the electric field.
What exactly is the electric field? Please explain it to me with using gravitational peotential, etc. as an example.
How is the...
It happened in Tamil Nadu too!
Few couples were sitting in a park and this police people thrash them.
In some schools and colleges, boys are not allowed to talk to girls (you're fined/suspended)
In a private party, a couple kissed each other, a reporter happened to take a photo and displayed it...
There's too much of interdependence between huge economies like US EU China Japan India.
China would never hit developed economies like US since they are the primary consumers of Chinese goods. It'd probably try invading Taiwan. Taiwan is a little chummy with the US I believe and Bush is...
