Discussion Question 1
Imagine a scenario in which you recently attended a friend’s birthday dinner. From the food served at the dinner, list three menu items that might have been present.
- Identify the food groups that are represented in your menu items.
- Find out how many grams of protein, , and carbohydrate are present in a single serving of each item; then calculate the kilocalories that are present in each.
- Identify all the food groups that form a part of a balanced along with their sources.
- Assess the approximate amount of protein, fat, and carbohydrate that comprises a balanced in different body types. What are the effects of the consumption of each of these on the human body? Why?
Discussion Question 2
Kinetic energy causes disposition in the state of a substance. For instance, heat energy on a block of ice changes it first into water and finally into water vapor.
- Describe the process that ice on Mount Everest goes through when being heated from 10o Fahrenheit to 305o Kelvin. Explain how the energy requirements change at different steps of the heating curve. What are the energy transfers that happen in the ice on Mount Everest?
- How might temperature changes in the human body have an impact on human health? (Use an example to help illustrate your understanding). The human body goes through various temperature changes during a single day. Would you agree? Would this mean that the temperatures are not normal? Also, study the various temperature states that are commonly called, for example, fever.
