d) eponychium

Solutions

Expert Solution

To solve this problem the terminology needs to be understood and you have to know the parts of the nail the question is referring to.When  it comes to nails, it  composed of tightly paked epidermal  keratinocytes, which grows from the nail bed known as a matrix. The lunula  is the visible part of the nail (halfmoon) and it will appears white due to the vascular tissue underneath not being visible. 

 


The correct answer is b) mail matrix, this is the tissue region that nails originate from.

A vertically oriented square loop of copper wire falls from rest in a region in which the field B is horizontal uniform, and perpendicular to the plane of the loop, into a field-free region, see (Figure 1). The side length of the loop is s and the wire diameter is d. The resistivity of copper is pr and the density of copper is pm If the loop reaches its terminal speed while its upper segment is still in the magnetic...

Lipoproteins in Lipid Transport Lipids either enter the body through diet, are released from storage in adipose tissue
Lipoproteins in Lipid Transport Lipids either enter the body through diet, are released from storage in adipose tissue, or are manufactured in the liver. All lipids are transported in the blood. Because blood is aqueous and lipids are nonpolar, lipids must form associations with other molecules to form lipoproteins that can be transported in blood. Chylomicrons, very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDLs), intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDLs), low-density lipoproteins (LDLs), and high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) are five types of lipoproteins. Chylomicrons exclusively carry lipids from the...

A 2.67 g sample of plant tissue was analyzed for its zinc content. 23.25 ml of a standardized 0.010 Molar solution of EDTA was used to titrate the sample (by complexing with the zinc ions), determine the mass of zinc in the sample and express the value as;a. ppm zinc?b. ppb zinc?c. What mass of zinc product would form if the zinc (2+) ions were instead allowed to precipitate as zinc phosphate?3Zn2+(aq) + 2PO43-(aq)Zn3(PO4)2(s)
