This term speaks to the situation where tiny spaces in geologic structure (pores) are filled with a fluid, be it water or petroleum (crude oil or natural gas). The quality and the microstructure of a geologic mass, and the presence of fluids in it, will determine how seismic waves are both propagated through it and reflected by it.

Describe the Fluid Mosaic Model of cell membrane structure?

The fluid mosaic model states that proteins float in a sea of lipids. A cell membrane is composed of lipids arranged with their hydrophobic tails touching each other, with proteins scattered throughout. The proteins may either be integral, meaning that they span the entire membrane, or peripheral, meaning they stay outside of the cell only loosely associated with the membrane. This membrane fluidity can be experimentally showed using a technique called FRAP (florescent recovery after photobleaching). Things that effect membrane fluidity include: lipid tail length - shorter tails = more fluid at low temps degree of saturation - less saturation = more fluid at lower temps Also, cholesterol tends to keep membranes at an intermediate fluidity.

What is power steering fluid made out of?

The main component of power steering fluid are petroleum products. Each brand of power steering fluid will have slight variants on the makeup of the ingredients. It is important to make sure that the fluid you are buying is compatible with your car.

What is compress liquid?

A compressed fluid (also called a subcooled fluid) is a fluid under thermodynamic conditions that force it to be a steam. In a plot comparing absolute pressure and specific volume (commonly called a P-v diagram), of a real gas, a compressed fluid is to the left of the liquid-vapor phase boundary; that is, it will be to the left of the vapor dome.Some of the conditions that cause a fluid to be compressed are the following:§ A specific volume lesser than the specific volume of a saturated liquid§ A fluid temperature below the saturation temperature§ A pressure exceeding the saturation pressure§ An enthalpy smaller than the enthalpy of a saturated liquid

Will petroleum jelly conduct electricity?

No, it is a petroleum/wax/oil based compound. Electrons do not freely travel between molecules, in that, it's a dielectric. Similarly to the dielectric fluid in a transformer, petroleum jelly can be used as an insulator. It's thermal conduction isn't as good.
