Individual amoebae of the slime mold dictyostelium discoideum aggregate to form a spore-producing fruiting body. cheaters make spores, but do not contribute to the stalk. since many more spores with cheating genotypes are dispersed, they have higher fitness. why does directional selection not lead to fixation of the cheater genotype? o this is actually a case of frequency-dependent selection. with too many cheaters in a population, the fruiting body's stalk is not built well, and all individuals have lower fitness. individual amoebae form "slugs" only with other amoebae that have the same genotypes. individual amoebae compete against groups of multicellular predators; the noncheating genotype is favored during this competition. noncheating genotypes are maintained for the harmony and balance of nature. o reproductive success is independent of whether an organism exists as a single cell or as part of a multicellular "slug."

Consider the motion of the balloon and its air contents in terms of momentum. in step 1 above, the total momentum of the balloon and its contents was zero. recall that momentum = mv. both the balloon and the air inside it had a velocity of zero and therefore the total momentum was zero. now think about what happened when the air escaped from the balloon. a certain mass of air accelerated in one direction. in order to keep the total momentum of the system zero, the balloon itself (which has mass) had to accelerate in the opposite direction. use this scenario to you explain why the soda can rotates when the water squirts out of the escape holes. what was your hypothesis concerning the water-filled can? according to your data, do you think your hypothesis was correct? (be sure to refer to your data when answering this question.) summarize any difficulties or problems you had in performing the experiment that might have affected the results. describe how you might change the procedure to avoid these problems. give at least one more example of newton's third law in everyday life.
