What Are Some Examples of Gaseous Living Organisms?

In summary, the conversation revolves around finding examples of living beings that exist in the form of gas. The person asks for examples like water vapor, smoke, or other gaseous forms. However, the other person mentions that finding such an example may be difficult as DNA, the building block of life, is not a gas. They suggest checking a website for information on airborne diseases. It is also clarified that jellyfish and humans are not examples of living beings in gas form, as they are made of solids with varying amounts of water.

Jellyfish is not liquid, it is solids that make it keep the shape. It is not made of water - it contains a lot of water. So do humans (even if the proportions water/solids are different).

2. How do gaseous living organisms survive?

Gaseous living organisms survive by absorbing and metabolizing gases in their environment. They use these gases for energy and other essential processes, such as respiration and reproduction.

3. Can gaseous living organisms be harmful to humans?

While most gaseous living organisms are harmless, some can be harmful to humans. For example, certain bacteria and viruses can cause infections and illnesses when inhaled. However, our immune system is usually able to protect us from these organisms.

4. Where can gaseous living organisms be found?

Gaseous living organisms can be found almost everywhere in the atmosphere, including indoors and outdoors. They can also be found in bodies of water, soil, and living organisms themselves.

5. How are gaseous living organisms important for the environment?
