Yep

And that's true
When an unstable nucleus emits gamma radiation, it's mass number stays the same and its atomic number increases by 1

Nah, for some reason we use conventional current (even though in a metallic conductor the flow of current is negative to positive, we just take it as positive to negative for the rule. Just one of those things I guess )

Do you do GCSE Physics or A Level?

I'm 99% sure for A Level we use the actual flow of current. (I think this is another case of GCSEs lying to you)

False that's beta it stays the same for gamma (:

GCSE but it seems legit, the rules are arbitrary and use the conventional current for some reason O_o

Gosh, I need to revise homeostasis, but I think that's true? It turns stored glycogen into glucose, right?

Charge is the flow of current.

False, they are then reabsorbed into the blood
Sodium lithium and francium are less dense than water

No.. Proteins aren't filtered out at all.
Also, I know sodium and lithium are, but not sure about francium?

Simple molecular substances have low melting points because not a lot of energy is required to break their covalent bonds.

Oh I thought amino acids instead of proteins lol yh francium is more dense
And false? I think it's the intermolecular bonds and te covalent bonds are very strong
Nuclear fission is used to heat water which drives turbines in a nuclear reactor

True...

Hitler treated women as inferior in 1933-45 Germany. (true/false + explain)
Nick. It's maths/English/science questions only.
18. Chlorine is more reactive than Bromine.
19. (Original post by AlphaNick)
ugh
Yup

Though I disagree with that statement- he didn't treat them as inferior. He valued (Aryan) German mothers and called them 'the mothers of the country'. He even went as far as to give them medals for having children.
I would go into more detail, but I don't really want to divert the thread.

Deforestation increases biodiversity.

Yes, I think.
