In determining the dry weight of an organism, how would you know that it is completely dry?
Dry it for a long period of time.
Dry it until no more steam is produced.
Dry it until smoke does not appear.
Dry it at 100 degree celcius until its weight does not decrease anymore.
What is growth?
It is the quantitative change in form in an organism over a period of time
It is quantitative increase in size in an organism over a period of time
It is the change in the degree of specialization of tissues
It is a measure of an increase in size of an object
The figure shows the growth phases of an organism. Describe what happen during log phase?
