Is a celery stalk one rib or the whole thing?
The appropriate culinary terminology is "rib" for one piece/stick, and "stalk" for the entire thing/bunch/head. This does not reflect common usage, however, so use caution in interpreting recipes. These terms, however, are not used consistently even by food professionals. "Celery stalk," in American English, is commonly used to mean one piece/rib/stick of celery (in British English, correct me if I'm wrong, it seems more common to say "celery stick"). Also in American English, the whole thing may be referred to as a "bunch of celery." It is sometimes also called a "head" of celery. From my online research (after reading it in an older cookbook) it seems that the correct culinary terminology is "rib" for the single piece/stick, and "stalk" for the whole thing/bunch/head. I was not able to find any botanical terminology describing "rib" and "stalk" (but I'll keep working on it). I would be cautious in interpreting recipes. If the recipe calls for a chopped carrot, a small chopped onion, and a chopped celery stalk... I would go with a rib. Consider the proportion of ingredients when deciding if the author of the recipe meant a rib or the whole bunch. On the other hand, in authoring a recipe, I would choose the more correct term "rib" (which never means the whole bunch) to describe a single piece. The term "bunch" of celery, while maybe not elegant, seems unlikely to cause confusion either. When using the term "stalk," though, it seems prudent to describe exactly what you mean.

When you do a capillary action experiment with a stalk of celery with leaves and a stalk of celery without leaves which one pulls up water faster?
The stalk of celery with leaves pulls up water faster, as water evaporates from the leaves, creating an area of low pressure, and the water moves up from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure.
Yes colored water can change the color of celery, because celery has xylem tubes witch transports the water throughout the entire plant, therefore changing the celery's color
A stalk (or some people call it a rib) is one of the long pieces that are attached at the bottom of the head of celery.. U. S. Department of Agriculture grades . What most people call a "bunch of celery," the USDA calls a "stalk;" and what most people call a "stalk of celery," they call a "branc…h." One other term needs describing: "node," which is the point at which the first leaves or leafstems appear on a branch of celery. ( Full Answer )
Stalks of celery come in many sizes and shapes. Your best bet would be to get a scale and weight the stalk of celery in question your self.
It is a myth that any food can "burn" calories. In fact, all foods and drinks (except for water) have caloris in them. A celery stalk has about 6 calories in it.
I need to know the answer to this for my homework. I heard it was 'plasmolysis' but we haven't learned about that yet and it is not one of my options. Hope it's one of yours, though!
Hahahah no. But there are 4 floating ribs (2 each side). These are the bottom of the 12. Their posterior attachment is to T11 and T12 and they have no anterior atachment, they are not connected to the sternum by cartilage.
Essentially, the salt draws about the water from the pores in the celery's cell wall.

A celery stalk is placed in a solution it begins to wilt what is a likely componet of that solution?

There is no set number of stalks.. "A head of celery" is as the way celery is grown, harvested, and sold in much the same way as "a potato" or "an apple" or "a globe artichoke".. A bunch or "head" of celery consists of approximately a dozen or so individual ribs also called stalks.
Osmosis.. The celery stalk will try to equalize internal salt content with the salt water. It will do this first by transporting fresh water from inside itself to the salt water.
What holds all plant cells rigid is osmotic pressure - which sucks water into a cell. When the water is lost, so is the rigidity.
According to what I have read a "stalk" of celery is the whole bunch....a "rib", is one of the many that make up the "stalk"....so many of the recipes are really wrong when they say "one stalk"....you would have way too much celery.
Because of something called capillary action. Capillary action is the tendency of water to move upward in a capillary or thin tube, it's the same reason as to why when placed in a solution of water and red dye, the celery will turn red as well. The action causes the celery to absorb the salt water i…nto it thouroghly and thus, it wilts. ( Full Answer )

Long stalks can go on for hours or even weeks. Rabbits run faster than hairs but not as quickly as hares, ha..... Good luck with the race....
Spying and stalking are similar. People who spy may only do so on occasion, but a stalker seldom gives up. Spying and stalking are both invasions of privacy and anyone caught doing so can cool their heels in jail. Added: If the questioner is using the word "spying" to describe a " Peeping Tom " typ…e activity - - THAT kind of behavior could definitely be included under the term "stalking." ( Full Answer )
7 and 1/16 cups.... Unless it is an afican stalk of celery then it would be just 1. First you need to clarify "stalk of celery".

You mean how many cobs of corn on one stalk. That number varies with the cultivar and species of corn. The GMO corn typically has only one cob per plant, while other non-GMO varieties can have up to three or four cobs per plant. Certain exotics (such as the kind that makes "baby corn" like you woul…d find in a US restaurant salad bar) have been known to have as many as 18 ears on one plant, though this is an extreme example.

Yes it can be the case when there is more than one person stalking you. You just have to beware and protect yourself. Also accept the fact that there can be more than one person.
One rib of celery would equal about 1/4 tsp. celery seed but, be aware that celery seed does not have the exact same flavor as celery stalk so only use it in a pinch.
Because the moisture in the celery stick is absorbed by the salt, which weakens the celery stick, which kills it and by doing that weakens even more therefore becoming soft.

If you place a stock of celery into a glass of water it will absorb some of the water and become stiff again because celery is mostly water and when it gets older the water starts to leave the stock and it wilts
Have you noticed celery comes in a variety of sizes . How would we know if you are looking a t large or small celery, with a weight differential of 2-4 oz.
Both are correct. Stock and rib are used interchangeably in recipes that call for celery.
Yes...this should be an OK diet for your hamster. Do not treat the celery like an every day diet though. I am not sure this will be good for your hamster. So do not feed him/ her celery every single day of her hamster life.
