DECAY- Why do holes in the side of a compost bin help waste materials to decay faster
Oxygen, let excess heat out, aerobic respiration of microorganisms
1 of 12
DECAY- Why does putting decayed compost on soil around a plant help it to grow quicker?
compost contains minirals/ ions/ nutrients
2 of 12
PHOTOSYNTHESIS- Some of the glucose is changed into insoluble starch during photosyntheses. What happens to the starch?
The starch is stored for use later
3 of 12
PHOTOSYNTHESIS- What factor limits the rate photosynthesis?
Temperature
4 of 12
BODY FUNCTIONS- Which organ in the body monitors the concentration of glucose (sugar) in the blood?
Pancreas
5 of 12
BODY FUNCTIONS- what happens to amino acids that cannot be stored in the body
(amino acids) broken down, form urea, (amino acids broken down or urea) formed in liver, (urea / broken down amino acids) filtered by kidney
6 of 12
CELLS- What makes a cell best adapted to increase diffision into or out of a cell?
larger surface area or larger membrane
7 of 12
CELLS- Name an enzyme found in the salivery gland
amylase, carbohydrase
8 of 12
CELLS- How are cells adapted to produce amylase?
Many ribsomes because they produce protein or many mitochondria because mitochondria provide energy to make protein
9 of 12
GENETICS- Why should more eggs be be taken if a parent has a genetic disorder?
higher change of healthy baby or greater chance of fertilisation
10 of 12
GENETICS- In someone who has cystic fibrosis the person’s mucus becomes thick. The diagram shows how, in a healthy person, cells at the lung surface move chloride ions into the mucus surrounding the air passages. The movement of chloride ions causes.
Diffusion, more concentration solution outside cell, partially permeable membrane
11 of 12
LIPIDS- How does bile help the digestion of lipids in milk in the body
acid neutralised or conditions made neutral, emulsification or greater surface area, lipase work better
