### Difference between Bryozoan and Tunicate zooids?

I'm studying for a biology final right now and I have been having a hard time with the zooids of both of these phylums. My questions are

How are zooids and colonies organized? How do these animals feed? Is there zooid polymorphism and what kind? Do zooids coordinate/collaborate in certain structures and functions?

Also what are the major differences between both of these zooids. Are they anything like the sponge zooids?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

2 AnswersHomework Help6 years ago### How do you solve this sampling problem?

You collected a stratified random sample of oyster density (per m2) in a creek off of Cedar Key. You strata were broken into sub-tidal to mean low tide (low), mean low tide to mean tidal (mid), and mean tidal to mean high tide (high). In the area you surveyed low=1000m2, mid=200m2, high=300m2. You use the following number of 1m2 quadrats in each area low=10, mid=20, high=15. You calculate mean density in each area to be low=12.3, mid=35.6, high= 16.7 with variances of low=36, mid=30, high= 24. What is the overall mean density of oysters. Report your answer to 1 decimal place.

For safety reasons, electrical codes have been established that limit the amount of current a wire of a given size can carry. For example, an 18-gauge (cross-sectional area = 1.17 mm2 ), rubber-insulated extension cord with copper wires can carry a maximum current of 5.0 A.

Q) Find the voltage drop in a 12−ft , 18-gauge extension cord carrying a current of 5.0 A. (Note: In an extension cord, the current must flow through two lengths-down and back.)
