Purpose: The purpose of the experiment was to understand how strong a bessbug by using weights and observing the time the best bug takes to travel to a certain distance. Background Information: The horned Passalus; also known as the Bess Beetle, is widely known beetle that is easily recognized. The Bessbug is a shiny black insect with a hard shell. The bess beetle lives in damp rotten wood, which also serves as their source of food. Bess beetles can lift up to 100 times its weight. There are nearly 500 species of beetles in the family Passalidae. The Bessbugs are found in Eastern and south-central North America. The Bessbug Beetle ranges from 1.2 inches to 1.6 inches. The main body is broken into three sections. There is the abdomen, thorax, …show more content…
The bessbug weighed 1.76 grams. The bessbug and the tin combined weighed a total of 2.94 grams. The bess bug took a total of 1 minute and 42 seconds to reach 6 centimeters without any weights. The bessbug took a total of 3 minutes and 29 seconds to reach a distance of 6 cm with five weights on it. The bees bug took a total of 4 minutes and 7 seconds to reach centimeters with 8 weights. The bessbug took 5 minutes and 47 seconds to reach 6 cm with 10 weights. The weights have mass of 3.12 g, 3.23 g, 3.15 g, and 3.11 g. The mass of the ten weights were 31.46 grams. The bess bugs have six legs The bessbug is black. The bessbug walked slowly while carrying the weights. The bessbug did not move that much. In the beginning of the lab, it was hard to get the bessbug to move. The bessbug eats rotten wood. The eyes of the bessbug were beady The antennas were sticking out of the bessbug. The bessbug had furry antennas The shell of the bessbug was hard The bessbug had a thorax, abdomen, and head. When the bessbug did not have weights on, it moved fast. The bessbug tried as hard as it could (at times) to get onto the lab table surface and get off the carpet squares. Data: Quantitative Data Qualitative …show more content…
The bessbug was able to carry 6 weights which has the mass of 18.85 grams, while ten times the mass of a bessbug is 17.6 grams. The maximum amount of weights the bessbug was able to pull was 10 weights which is equal to 31.46 grams. The data shows the strength of the bessbug and how much the bessbug is able to carry in all. The data occurred because the capacity of the bessbug allows the bessbug to carry 10 weights. The data supports the hypothesis because the bessbug was able to lift ten times the weight of the bessbug which is 17.6 grams, and much more because the total amount the bessbug was able to pull was 31.46 grams. The knowledge acquired from this experiment teaches that a bessbug is capable of pulling much more than 10 times the weight of a bessbug. If the group were to repeat this experiment and change that would be made would be with collecting more data, that is more accurate, with a greater range. The changes could be done through multiple timers, experimenting with more weights on the bessbug, to test the capacity even more. Also, experimenting with multiple bessbugs instead of one bessbug, and having the bug go to multiple distances will make the range in data more minded and
You will now read two passages and answer the questions that follow. Some of the questions may ask you to compare the two passages. This passage is based on a tale from the Ashanti people of Ghana. Anansi is a famous character, a spider, who often tricks others. Passage 1 Stories from the Sky

Only the larva of this insect can actually eat cloth, the adults just don 't have the mandibles to do so. They have four life stages, the egg, larva, pupa and adult. The adults only live two to four weeks. The larva are attracted to animal products that contain keratin. This is a fibrous protein found in hair and skin.
The item is number 1306. The suggest portion weight range for this product is 4-8 ounces. To prepare this item a half of item number 306 is used. The tail length should be 3.0 inches or shorter when measuring from the ventral edge of the longissimus dorsi.
Use what you have learned to explain why the spring scale read 250 grams rather than 500 grams. 2. In the top picture (on the right), Robert is pulling upon a rope that is attached to a wall. In the bottom picture, Robert is pulling upon a rope that is attached to an elephant.
These parts are the elbow, forearm, knee, cannon, fetlock joint, pastern, foot, gaskin, and hock. The legs of a horse are the key part to a horse while showing the horse in showmanship. Their legs are important because they are what make them so tall and make them look beautiful and when their feet are set up they make the horse look strong and powerful. Even though the diagram that is shown that is not the only part in the horse’s foot. There are other parts under the foot and there is about ten parts in their foot (diagram in my first year’s essay of the foot).
Acrobates pygmaeus Description An Acrobates pygmaeus is a tiny gliding animal, also known as a feathertail glider or a sugar glider, that has a long skinny tail. An average feathertail glider weighs about ten to fourteen grams Its length can range from six and a half to eight centimeters. The color of a sugar glider is a blend between a light brown and a grey. The body of an Acrobates pygmaeus is symmetrical but bilaterally meaning it is symmetrical from left to right.
The Hercules beetle is very large, in fact it’s the biggest type of beetle in the world. Males can grow nearly 7 inches, but the average length is between 4 and 15 centimeters. The male Hercules beetles have giant pinchers that can grow longer than their own body. The Hercules beetle is an omnivore. They mainly eat rotting wood, fruit, small insects, and plant matter.
It is important to remember to make sure there is no excess water/potato puree. Too much water/potato puree could drown the pill bugs. The lightly wet filter papers were placed into the choice chambers. Gently, place all ten pill bugs into the middle of the choice chambers using the tweezers. The movements of the pill bugs in the choice chambers
Logically, a weaker, petite person would not need such heavy weights on their body as the ones described around George's neck, weighing "forty-seven pounds in a bag locked with a padlock. The weights are heavy objects that restrain the person, in turn preventing them from making normal human movements. The weights symbolize oppression. The
In the Penny Boat Lab, we made a boat to hold pennies in water. First, we collected materials we needed which were scissors, a ruler, water, pennies, aluminum foil, a triple beam balance and a container. Using the ruler, we measured the foil 15cm by 15cm, then cut excess pieces. Next, we had to fold the foil into a “boat”. After, we measured the mass of our boat using the triple beam balance.
Trypanosoma cruzi is a species of parasitic euglenoid protozoans. Trypanosoma cruzi can cause Chagas disease which is “a protozoan disease of the cardiovascular system”. (Tortora, G.J., Funke, B.R., & Case, C. L. (N.d.) Microbiology: An introduction.) originating from a triatomine bug.
