In which two ways will a dog contribute to the carbon cycle? pick 2 choices 1.it will release carbon dioxide in the atmosphere through respiration. 2.it will take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. 3.its feces will contain carbon that will enter the geosphere. 4.it will convert carbon to a form that will be used by plants for energy. 5.it will decompose the body of plants to release carbon dioxide.
Among the given options, the two ways dog will contribute to the Carbon cycle are :
1. It will release carbon dioxide in the atmosphere through respiration.
3. Its feces will contain carbon that will enter the Geosphere.
The correct answers are:
1.It will release carbon dioxide in the atmosphere through respiration.
3.Its feces will contain carbon that will enter the geosphere.
The dog is a consumer and cannot perform photosynthesis. They take up oxygen and release carbon dioxide. This way, the carbon present in his food products is transferred to the atmosphere as a byproduct of the cellular respiration process. The feces of the dog contain the complex wastes of food, which can be decomposed by the bacteria and other decomposers and the carbon present in it enters the geosphere.
The dog cannot convert the carbon in a form of energy used by plants and dog also cannot decompose.
A & C
Explanation: Animals are consumers and all of they food they eat contains carbon which is then passed out in feces and returned to the earth through what is essentially a lesser form of decomposition. Dogs also breathe just like us by taking in oxygen and breathing out co2 which contributes to the carbon cycle as well.
Option A and C
Explanation: The animals take oxygen from the atmosphere and performs the process known as cellular respiration.
This process releases carbon dioxide which is expelled out of the body. This carbon dioxide from atmosphere is take up by plants and in this way the dog will contribute in carbon cycle.
Dog will also also excrete feces containing carbon into the environment that will enter into the geosphere and contribute in carbon cycle.
a and c
A and D seem like the best answers
The correct answer is A. It will release carbon dioxide in the atmosphere through respiration and C. Its feces will contain carbon that will enter the geosphere.
The carbon cycle implies different mechanisms that allow carbon to flow in the biosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, etc. This cycle similar to the water cycle is necessary for life and implies the interaction between biotic and abiotic factors.
In the case of animals, they contribute to the carbon cycle in two main ways; the first one is through respiration because this process involves taking oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; on the other hand, the second mechanism is through waste products or decay materials that includes feces or the body of the animal once it dies. This is because these materials are broken down by bacteria that release carbon into the soil. According to this, options A and C describe the way a dog will contribute to the carbon cycle.
The correct answers (two) are A and C
