The presence of a non volatile solute in the solution decreases the vapour pressure of the solvent.So, when a spoonful of salt is added to boiling water,

the temperature at which the water in the solution state boils is increased.

Why is it beneficial for organisms to produce sexually and asexually?

Sexual reproduction allows for genetic diversity. This may be helpful to allow an organism to better adapt to its environment. Asexual reproduction produces offspring that are identical to the parent. This may be helpful in that the offspring are born already adapted to the environment. If there is suddenly a shortage of one sex for a species (ex. 90% of males are wiped out due to illness), to prevent the species from dying out, it would be handy if the organism could reproduce without a mate.

What will bacteria do with products for starch hydrolysis?

Let me guess, this question is for a lab write up in your microbiology class? When your bacteria, probably Bacillus cereus, act on starch they produce glucose. You have probably already done this lab but the bacteria will ferment the glucose. E.coli does not hydrolyze the starch because it does not produce amylase (which break down the starch into simple sugars).

What is the difference between primary and secondary nondisjunction?
