                    How long would your DNA be if you stretch it out?

Each of us has 60 – 90 trillion cells so our DNA is very, very tiny when coiled up. 

If you could take it out of a cell and stretch it into a line, our DNA would be more than six feet long. 

That's almost two meters.

                    How many genes does a human being have?

Before the completion of the human genome project, many scientists were expecting to find 100,000 or more genes in our genome. 

This was based on the assumption that because we are one of the most complex creatures on Earth we should have lots of genes. 

However, it turned out we only have around 24,000 genes.

                    What is the electrical conductivity of acids and bases?

Acid and Bases have different different electrical conductivity based on density of free ions present in it. 

A strong acid/base conduct electricity easily. More strong means more the number of ions. 

Let us suppose, if you are connecting a bulb in a circuit with strong acid/base solution, bulb will glow accordingly.. if you are connecting it with weak acid/base solution, bulb will not glow significantly.

It just depends on strength of acid/base.

Both can conduct electricity.
