Closed Population And Exponential Model

Good Essays
It is a group of individual organisms belonging to the same species which are living in the same area at the same time. or The Population can be defined as the group of inhabitants (individual) among the same species which are occupied a specific geographic area i.e. community of animals, plants, country, place, and humans etc.
Closed population:
Closed population is defined as a population in which neither immigration nor emigration occurs which is governed by rates of birth, growth, reproduction and death.
Metapopulation:
The group of populations that are separated by space but consist of same species. These spatially separated population interact as individual members which move from one population to other population (species). or a group of population

What is the relationship between intrinsic rate of increase and body weight
The relationship between an intrinsic rate of increase and body weight is calculated by the given equation rm=aWn whereas rm is the intrinsic rate of increase per day and W reveals average body weight in grams. a is a constant variable which takes three different values for unicellular organisms and heterotherm and homoiotherm animals respectively. The constant n has a value of about-0.275 for all three groups (Fenchel, 1974).
5. What is the main difference between geometric and exponential models?
In geometric models, there is a constant rate of increase in values like as birth rate increases in number forms i.e. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64….. But in the exponential model, there is itself change in value like 2, 4, 16, 256…… because the exponential model has quite different increases exponentially in the power of ℮.
6. What is the relationship between the two constants r and λ?
Lambda λ is the ratio of the population size (population change) at one time to its one time unit earlier. We calculate λ from population counts at successive times, even when we do not know about per capita rate of birth and death. r is intrinsic rate of

    Lastly the density was calculated using the formulas mass/volume and that was 569.77 kg/m^3. Then using the uncertainties provided the maximum area, volume, and density using the same formulas as before. Those values were 257.55 cm^2, 978.69 cm^3, and 546.55 kg/m^3. Next the uncertainty was calculated by subtracting the max from the measured value of the area, volume, and density. Those values were 3.6 for area, 25.3 for volume, and 10.8 for density.…

    11) Compare and contrast the processes of mitosis and meiosis. Your answer should not only include a summary of each process, but should discuss both the similarities and differences between them. Mitosis is an asexual process that results in identical offspring. There is no crossing over or homologous pairs in this process. There is only one division in this process and two diploid cells are formed at the end of it.…

    Firs is to multiply the number of days, which in this case is 32.17 days by 24 hours over 1 day. Then the days cancel out because they are the same unit measure and hours stay. Then again this process is repeated for minutes and hours until eventually what stays remaining is seconds. Finally, what stays remaining is multiplied across which should be 32.17 times 24 times 60 times 60 and then it is divided by 1 giving the final answer. After these values are obtained and changed into the proper unit of distance and time, meters and seconds, they can be plugged into Kepler’s Third Law: The first step to calculating the equation is to take the first half and multiple across.…

    At the beginning in the acceleration phase, the birth rate surpasses the death rate, then it turns into deceleration phase where the death rate roughly equals to the birth rate through the inflection point, a point that the growth rate is constant. At equilibrium, the steady state occurs that the birth rate and the death rate are equal. The growth of the Paramecium caudatum and Paramecium aurelia in separate media should fit the logistic population…

    The daily calorie intake is based on basal metabolic rate (BMR) of 1789. The BMR was calculated with a BMR calculator entering height, weight, gender and age for a total of 1154. The daily calorie needs calculated included the BMR times 1.55 to include moderate active exercise three to five times a week. A total for 1789 BMR is needed to maintain current weight. The average calorie intake from the three day diet history was 1881 BMR.…

    Instead of the substitution of values into equation (1), a graph with the gradient of 1 divided by the square root of the acceleration of gravity is used. The length of the pendulum rod is increased every 2cm from 17cm until it reaches 25cm (i.e. five values). Ten oscillations are measured for each length and divided by ten and this is repeated ten times for each length. An average period is found for each of these lengths along with their uncertainties using the equations (3) and (4).…

    Firstly, illiquidity from microstructure data which use two measures of illiquidity, the price impact measure and the fixed cost component (Brennan and Subrahmanyam, 1996). According to Yakov Amihud (2000), illiquidity is negatively correlated with variables that are known proxy measures of liquidity. Besides, the turnover ratio, is calculated for each stock and the calculation from daily data accounts for mid-year changes in the number of shares outstanding due to the stock splits, stock dividends, stock issues and stock repurchase. The dollar volume of stock is the sum over the year of the daily product share volume by the price, and also previous study shows that size is the market capitalization of stock at the end of the year. According to Harris (1994), the stock price at the end of the year, should be related to liquidity because the lower tick affects the lower bid-ask spread as % of…
