    1.What is the human internal pond?

    This is most likely the circulatory system because it is the system that delivers metabolites, oxygen, cell signaling molecules, water, and other nutrients to the cells. This is the "pond" or the aqueous environment that supplies all the organs and cells.

    2.Define homeostasis.

    It is the maintenance of a stable internal environment.

    3.Define physiology.

    It is the science/study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of living organisms, ...
