Biology Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic cells

HideShow resource information

Animal cells 

Cytoplasm-liquid like substance, gives cell its shape, is a location for many chemical reactions for the cell.

Cell Membrane:

.stops cytoplasm seeping out

.semi permible- allows things into cell such as oxygen, glucose.

.allows certain things to leave cell- carbon dioxide, urea or any waste product

Nucleus- Encases genetic material

Mitochondria- Powerstaions of cell, release energy locked up in glucose in reations of aerobic respiration. 

Ribosomes- Make protein for cell 

.Animal cells very small in size, range from 10 micrometres to 30 micrometres. 

.1000 micrometres per millmetre. 

.could fit 100 10 micrometres in 1 mm.

.could fit 33 micrometres in 1 mm.

Plant cells 

.Have same as animal cells with a few extras. 

.Need to be as full up of water as possible as they dont have a skeletal structure, keeps them as
