Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Scientist"

The meaning of "Scientist" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does in coldplay'song the scientist
chris martin said" Heads on a science apart"
what does that mean ?? mean?
A: So, in that part of the song he says "Running in circles, coming up tails, heads on a science apart"

First thing to note: he is referencing playing "heads or tails." the game where you flip a coin to make a decision. If the coin lands on the side with a face, its heads. If the coin lands on the side without a face, it's tails. usually you do this to make a random decision. Like if you and a friend can't decide if you want coffee or tea. You get the coin and say "heads, we get coffee. tails, we get tea." and you flip the coin and see which wins.

This song is about a relationship that isn't doing well. So they keep "running in circles" meaning that they keep getting into arguments and doing the same things. They keep "coming up tails" meaning they keep making the same bad decision to stay together.

"heads on a science apart" means that splitting up is the logical choice here. It's the winning choice (heads).
Q: What does A scientist turned a bat loose in a pitch dark room. mean?
A: I assume you know what a bat is (a small animal with wings). Bats fly in the evening or even at night and catch insects. They locate their position and their prey (insects) by echo-location rather than by sight, so the point of this experiment or demonstration by the scientist was to see this echo-location in action. Bats do not bump into anything even when it is pitch dark. What's echo-location? It is a clever thing done by bats: they send out little sounds (too faint for us to hear) and wait for them to bounce off anything. This tells them where they are and what they are surrounded by.
Q: What does He's also wired like a scientist mean?
A: It means he also thinks like a scientist. (Wired, in this sentence, refers to the connections inside the brain.)
Q: What does He's wired like a scientist mean?
A: In this case, it means he has a problem with misinformation and loves facts.

Apologies my above answer was wrong I didn't have enough information.
Q: What does scientists figured out that human body temperature sits at 98.6 degrees so that our bodies are hot enough to ward off fungal infections while still being cool enough to keep us from eating all the time just to maintain metabolism. mean?
A: is hot enough to ward off infection BUT AT THE SAME TIME is cool enough.

If we were too cold, we would have to eat more to maintain our metabolism.

So 98.6 is not too hot, not too cold.

Sorry, I don't know these words in Japanese!

Synonyms of "Scientist" and their differences

A: The difference is that the sentence “The scientist laid out the apparatus on the table” means that the scientist has put/laid out the (in this context, most likely whole/already built) apparatus on the table

The sentence “The scientist arranged the apparatus on the table” means that the scientist is building the apparatus on the table. Or, it could also mean that the the scientist is moving the apparatus’ placement on the table so that it’s in an ‘arranged’ placement.

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? scientists can maneuver through the ocean depths and, with he aid of electronic lights, directly observe # and ~.

in this sentence 'manever' means move(D) why? and why can't be (A)transfer,it also means 'move'
A: “Transfer” is a specific kind of move where something goes from one place to another. So you transfer pictures from your phone to your computer or you transfer pancakes out of the pan and onto the plate when they are done cooking. There has to be a source and a destination. Since the scientists aren’t really going from one place to another, they are just going around wherever, “transfer” is not appropriate here.

Other questions about "Scientist"

Q: scientist "named" or "called" albert
A: named sounds better in this context to me, both are correct though
Q: What is the more properly. A scientist named or called?
A: A scientist named
Q: Some of the most renowned scientists are also far-famed in another field of specialty.
Does this sound natural?
A: I would use, "...in other specialty fields." opposed to what said, as it allows for them to be renowned in more then two fields (which is what you would be saying if you had "...in another field" or "another field of specialty").
Also, 'far-famed', while technically correct and a good use of the word, is an uncommon word that people may assume is incorrect ( I know I had to double check). A more natural phrase to use would be 'well known'.

Putting that together, we get.

"Some of the more renowned scientists are also well know in other specialty fields."


Hope that helps :)
Q: If you were a competent scientist and able to invent a medicine which could cure only one disease, what medicine do you want to make and why? Does this sound natural?
A: "Which" is not correct. This is a restrictive clause and the sentence wouldn't mean the same thing if you took it out. This medicine can cure anything and is unlike any other. It is unique, and you need to use "that" to set it apart from all other medicines.

"Which" and "that" both perform similar functions, but the former just adds information about something that can be omitted, and the latter introduces a description that sets the noun apart.

1. Today I washed my car which has a spoiler.
2. Today I washed my car that has a spoiler.

In 1, you can take out the which part and the sentence means the same thing as it did before (I only have one car, and I washed it today.) In 2, you have multiple cars, and today you washed the one with a spoiler. If you take out the that clause, this meaning is not preserved.

Example sentences highlighting the difference between that and which might seem a bit contrived, and I think it's because we tend to focus on what sets things apart because it is more interesting.

Here is an example using both:
Mammals are animals that have live young. However, echidnas and platypuses, which are also mammals, lay eggs, and they are the only mammals that do.

1. All animals do not have live young, so we use "that" to set mammals apart from the rest of the animals.
2. Echidnas and platypuses are both also mammals. We are just adding extra information so we use which. Notice if you take away "which are also mammals" the meaning stays intact.
3. Echidnas and platypuses are the only mammals that lay eggs. This sets them apart from all other mammals and makes them unique. So, we use "that."

Honestly "that" is much more common, and we don't really use "which" outside of as a question word (e. g. Which one do you want?) because the nature of it is to add (mostly) superfluous information that doesn't have an effect on the meaning of the sentence. Unless you are clarifying something, you're going to be using "that" in the vast majority of cases.
Q: Either if I will be a scientist or not, I should be studying about all of the world for my interesting.

내가 과학자가 되든 되지 않든, 나는 내 흥미를 위해서 이 세상의 모든 것을 공부할 것이다.

If it is wrong, please comment the correct answer on it. Does this sound natural?
A: You use whether here because you are not introducing a strong point. it doesn't matter towards your study.

Either I will be a scientist or not, so I will need to study more about the world. (To help me become a scientist)
