Hi,

#7713. Name the British ecologist sometimes described as the "father of modern ecology" ( (January 30, 1903 – May 17, 1991).

Hi,

#7725. Name the geography term : A wide, flat, gently sloping plain created by the long-term deposition of alluvium from one or more rivers flowing from highland regions, and typically characterized by various fluvial landforms such as braided streams, terraces, and meanders.

Hi,

#7727. Name the term in physics : The theoretical lowest possible temperature, understood by international agreement as equivalent to 0 Kelvin or −273.15 °C (−459.67 °F). More formally, it is the theoretical lower limit of the thermodynamic temperature scale, at which enthalpy and entropy of a cooled ideal gas reach their minimum values and the fundamental particles of nature have minimal vibrational motion.

#7728. Name the term in physics : The tendency of dissimilar particles or surfaces to cling to one another.

Re: General Quiz

Hi,

#7729. Name the term in physics : A process which occurs without transfer of heat or mass of substances between a thermodynamic system and its surroundings. In this process, energy is transferred to the surroundings only as work. The process provides a rigorous conceptual basis for the theory used to expound the first law of thermodynamics, and as such it is a key concept in thermodynamics.

#7730. Name the term in physics : The fraction of the total light incident on a reflecting surface, especially a celestial body, which is reflected back in all directions.
