Where Do the Pollen Grains of Flowering Plants Develop?

The place of production of the pollen grain differs according to the plant: In gymnosperms (seed-producing plants), the pollen grain is produced in strobiles. While in angiosperms (flowering plants), the pollen grain is produced in flowers, specifically in the anther (the part of the stamen where pollen is produced). The anther is a kind of tissue-covered pouch that… Continue reading Where Do the Pollen Grains of Flowering Plants Develop?

Highest and Lowest Temperature in the Universe?

Highest and Lowest Temperature in the Universe.

We will start by explaining the physical phenomenon on which the temperature that something can have depends. When the particles of an object move a lot, they generate heat, and the entity has a higher temperature. When particles move less, there is less heat, and the thing is colder. We can imagine a point where… Continue reading Highest and Lowest Temperature in the Universe?

Can We Breathe in an Environment of Pure Oxygen

What happens if you breathe pure oxygen?

What happens if you breathe pure oxygen: take a look at Divers Alert Network guidelines. Scuba equipment works by forcing compressed air into the lungs at the same pressure as the pressure of the surrounding water. The deeper you dive, the more air you use. For every 33 feet / 10 meters that you descend,… Continue reading Can We Breathe in an Environment of Pure Oxygen

Why Are Some Metals Attracted to Magnets and Others Are Not?

Why are some metals are magnetic and others are not?

To keep it simple, when it comes to magnetism there are three main types of materials: Ferromagnetic: Which are strongly attracted by magnetic fields, and are mainly alloys of iron, nickel and cobalt; note that these three metals are adjacent in the periodic table. Paramagnetic: Which are weakly attracted by magnetic fields, such as oxygen.… Continue reading Why Are Some Metals Attracted to Magnets and Others Are Not?
