Asked in Drifting
The supercontinent that separated into present day continents due to continental drift was called?
It really depends on just how far back you really want to go, but the evidence gives an age of about 250 million years ago for the most recent time that all of the continents were joined into one supercontinent. This given name for this most recent supercontinent was Pangaea, but drift and collision seem to be cyclical over time and there are quite a few names of prior supercontinents going back much futher in the Earth's history.

Why is this era given the name paleozoic?
The word paleozoic comes from the Greek "Palaio" which means ancient and "zoion/zoe" which means animals or life. It literally means ancient life. It was coined by Adam Sedgwick in the early 19th Century. At this time it was thought that this was the earliest life on earth. He was also a very religious man and a great opponent to Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.
Asked in Paleontology
What times would be the longest a paleozonic b carboniferious period c Jurassic period d mesozoic era?
According to the newly released Geologic Time Scale (June 2012) these are the durations of the given options: a) Paleozoic: 258.8 million years b) Carboniferous: 60.0 million years c) Jurassic: 56.3 million years d) Mesozoic: 186.2 million years Its not surprising that the Carboniferous and Jurassic are the shorted as both are Periods one of the given Eras. So the Paleozoic is the longest of the four options.

What is an argument paragraph?
An argument paragraph is a paragraph in which one states his or her opinion on a given issue and then supports that argument/opinion with facts, counter-arguments, and explination. For example, one might state that smoking should be banned in all public buildings, and then cite statistics and public opinion polls to bolster that opinion.
Can a solid melt into a solid?
This cannot happen literally or chemically but an explanation similar to the question is given below. A solid can melt into a solid but this can happen only when we are making alloys. Suppose we are making the alloy bronze ( Cu + Sn). Then these metals are melted and mixed in different proportions. Then the mixture is cooled and the atoms freely mix and lock together to form bronze. In this process, copper is melted into tin and vice versa.

Does the melting point of aluminum change with the thickness?
When ice melts heat is?
32 degrees Fahrenheit IF it is melted at sea level and is pure (distilled) water. +++ The question contains a mistake in the science - let alone grammar. It asks for the 'heat' but that should be 'temperature', given correctly in the answer as 32ºF (or 0ºC). Heat is energy, temperature is its level.

What would happen if you melted diamonds?
If you heated diamond in air it would turn to graphite - a more stable form of carbon - long before it melted. However, it can be melted if subject to 10 million times normal atmospheric pressure. When the pressure is reduced the diamonds will crystallised again. This has led scientists to speculate that there might be "seas" of molten diamonds on Neptune and Uranus because their atmospheres generate intense pressures and also are carbon-rich.

How do you mold melted plastic?
The industrial shaping of melted plastic is almost exclusively done in molds. The process is called injection molding. A screw drives feed stock through a heater, and the molten plastic is forced out the "business end" into molds. It is possible to mold plastic by hand, but precautions absolutely must be observed. The plastic is hot and the fumes given off by hot plastic are toxic. Additionally, heating the plastic is something that must be carefully done as you can overheat it and pyrolyze the material. You can also cause it to catch fire. If you are not at ease with any ideas here, you should not be trying to mold melted plastic. Set yourself a learning curve and get up to speed before attempting anything like this. Safety is your first mission.
