      1. Use the concept of interacting systems to explain how oxygen from the atmosphere is able to reach cells deep within the body.

      2. Explain how the acidity of blood controls breathing rate.

      Please do your own homework. This can be easily found in any physiology textbook

      Oh piss on me with Diabetic urine and have ants crawl all over it, you rude pathetic bastard!

      If you can’t tell who I am by now, you are obviously brainless! I copied those questions out of my sophomore bio book from THREE years ago! I didn’t have them for homework!

      Listen. This is the WORST site I have ever been on. You egotistical mods have nothing better to do than sit on your fat asses and cut people down for asking homework questions. Whether you or a text book explain, they still learn. At least you said please in this last one. That’s a step up!

      I’ll have to agree with MrMistery here, these are basic questions that you can easily find the answers to, using Google or a book or anything, and I can understand why he wouldn’t want to spend time answering them.

      We could always ignore you if that’s preferred.

      If someone needs help with homework questions don’t take your precious time to reply with "do you own homework". If you have time to type "do your homework" you have time to type both "diffusion" and "homeostasis". I know you did, which is great, but I don’t see why everyone is making a big deal out of it. If you don’t want to answer people’s question’s than don’t. If you do, than do.

      Anyways, in regards to your question, "diffusion" and "homeostasis" while being correct are really ball-park answers. Diffusion of oxygen into your cells is a very extensive process. And, lest we forget, homeostasis is an even more extensive process. At least now you have a starting point. Good luck!

      @Oscerot,

      Is it so wrong that we want to encourage students to learn from textbooks rather than being spoon fed answers?

      Is it so wrong that we would rather not have the forum repeated filled with junk that really contributes nothing to understanding or discussion but rather attracts more of the same types of rude posters who expect this to be a homework forum?

      Is it so wrong that we remind people to read the forum rules where it specifically states thread titles should be descriptive and homework problems should go through the student first?

      Is it so wrong to make a big deal out of principles?

      Well you certainly cannot expect everyone to be as knowledgable of science as some of you. You could think of it as a compliment. People come here because they expect answers because they peg everyone here as highly intelligent.

      Yeah but force feeding rarely works…and textbooks may not necessarily have all the answers. At least not all my questions are answered in my textbooks.

      People come here and sign up for quick answers hoping to never having to return. I highly doubt they’re going to read the rules.

      It’s a forum.

      Anyways, I don’t really want to debate this. All I’m saying is it seems pointless to waste your time writing a reply to something more pointless just because the guy incited you.

      No textbooks don’t have all the answers, note that we’re not telling everyone to go read the text.

      Why is having a forum in conflict with having principles?

      Wow….I hope when I post a question and ask for help understanding a ‘concept’ I dont get shot down….I read and reread my book and lecture notes, and notes from all kindds of websites, but its still a foriegn language to me.

      Many of us realize that ‘visitors’ are looking for answers … and they come here because they think that we may have answers. But the thing is, we didn’t learn all of this ‘stuff’ by being spoonfed, instead we studied memorized and figured it out. So it is REALLY unfair to you if we just give answers without encouraging you to try on your own.

      The point is… if you have a homework question that you don’t quite understand. You SHOULD say something to show that you’ve TRIED to answer the question.

      For instance, if you teacher were to ask:
      "what are 3 functions of the endoplasmic reticulum?"

      And you were to say:
      "I think the endoplasmic reticulum functions by: Providing an environment for protein folding, a location for glycosylation, and it .. provides ATP for the cell"

      Someone would respond and say (somethign like…)
      " Reasons 1 and 2 are correct, however ATP is ‘made’ by mitochondria … An example of 3rd function could be directing and transporting proteins to other organelles or to the secretory pathways."

      … there is nothing wrong with being incorrect. I make mistakes EVERYDAY, there are things that I come across EVERYDAY, that I don’t understand. But, I make it a point to try to teach myself … so that I can learn, and be better prepared in the future.

      I did get shot down… When I posted a question on this website I was given some very stupid replies to my post and was rudely told that they don’t answer ‘homework questions’… I was very insulted by this… Never mind that I’m 21 and half way through medical school and it has been a good few many years since I’ve ever been set ‘homework’… I found it completely patronising and it has put me off posting any of my questions in such a forum… I also find that some people here have a lot of attitude and think they are a lot more intelligent than you and then they give you extremely unhelpful replies when answering your posts – there are too many of these… The only reason I post is because there are a few nice intelligence posters (such as Darby and Dr Stein 🙂 ) and it is hard to find active biology forums at university level… but yet, i’m put off by posting because of stupid rules and millions of unhelpful people… I mean, you’ve only just joined and you no doubt can see how PATRONISING people can be… :roll:… I’m just glad I’m not the only one to notice…

      @ Revenged

      I replied to one of your messages … and gave you my honest opinion (with no intention of being mean or rude), and because you didn’t agree with my response … your response was full of ‘sarcasm/attitude’ …

      So, if you’re going to give attitude … don’t complain when your receive attitude.

      have an exceptional weekend!

      yes, i hope so too…

      but tbh i’m still put off posting any questions in this forum… especially if i’m going to be treated as though i’m a 14 year old trying to cheat on my homework…

      I think that on no account people who come here for homework questions should be insulted, even if they have not tried to solve them on their own. We should encourage them gently to try to solve the problems.

      What is asking a teacher after class for help? I did that a lot in high school. whatever!

      Ok, I totally see your point in wanting kids to look in the text book first, I just don’t necessarily agree with it. But you know, if you would just ASK them if they have tried a text book and THEN if they have you try to help them, it would be a lot better. But I have seen so many posts that are rude to the people asking! You can even see that other members feel the same way.

      and don’t assume that they have not looked in a textbook! ASK them first! Don’t just make a post saying "Look in a text book!" What if they did? Instead say "Have you looked in a textbook for the answer? If so, what have you found? Have you found anything at all?" Now THAT would be appropriate. Sometimes, I just like to ask questions! I look up stuff on biology for fun! Its not homework, its just fun! I may go on a bio forum and ask something that sounds like a homework question, but in reality, its just me wanting some info on something I am curious about. If I got told to look in a textbook, I would think "What? I don’t have a textbook! This is not my homework!"
