What is osmosis?
The movement of water through diffusion
1 of 38
What type of membrane is required for osmosis?
A partially permeable membrane
2 of 38
Does it require energy?
No, it doesn't require energy
3 of 38
What is active transport?
Uses energy to move molecules across a partially permeable membrane against the concentration gradient
4 of 38
How does it work?
The protein grabs hold of a molecule and then rotates to face inside the cell using energy. The molecule is then released into the cell. It then uses energy again to rotate back to the outside

What do sport drinks contain?
Mineral ions, Glucose and Water
6 of 38
When are sports drinks actually useful?
After a very intense workout as sweat causes a great loss of water and mineral ions. Glucose is also used in respiration. Otherwise, water can be as effective during regular exercise
7 of 38
If the concentration of the sports drink matches the body fluids, what is the solution called?
8 of 38
Why do large organisms have exchange surfaces?
To obtain all the food and oxygen to keep the organism alive
9 of 38
What exchange are the lungs used for?
Gaseous Exchange
10 of 38
What is breathing in and out called?
11 of 38
What is the small intestine lined with?
12 of 38
What are villi?
Hair like structures inside lining of small intestine. They have thin walls with many capillaries close to them, making it easier for diffusion to happen. Sometimes active transport it used
13 of 38
What are stomata?
Tiny holes at the bottom of the leaf that allow gas to move in and out of the plant. Controlled by guard cells
14 of 38
When do guard cells close?
When too much water is being lost
15 of 38
Where are ions obtained from in plants?
Roots obtain ions from soil
16 of 38
What is transpiration?
Evaporation of water through the stomata in a leaf
17 of 38
What is a double circulation system?
A system that pumps blood twice in a cycle. Once to the lungs and once to the body in large animals
18 of 38
Name the 4 chambers of the heart
Right and left atria, right and left ventricles
19 of 38
Where does the pulmonary vein deliver blood to?
Left atrium
20 of 38
Which blood vessel delivers blood to the right atrium?
Vena cava
21 of 38
What blood vessel does the right ventricle deliver blood to?
Pulmonary artery
22 of 38
What blood vessel does the left ventricle deliver blood to?
23 of 38
What do valves do?
Prevent backflow of blood
24 of 38
The pulmonary artery carries blood to...
The lungs to be oxygenated
25 of 38
The aorta carries blood to...
the rest of the body
26 of 38
Have thick walls containing elastic tissue and muscle with a small lumen. They carry blood away from the heart
27 of 38
are one cell thick and carry blood through the organs
28 of 38
have a large lumen and valves to prevent backflow. They carry blood to the heart
29 of 38
What does blood contain?
White and red blood cells, platelets and plasma
30 of 38
What does plasma transport?
Waste, soluble products of digestion and urea
31 of 38
Red blood cells...
are bionconcave discs with no nucleus and contain haemoglobin
32 of 38
White blood cells...
are part of the body's defence system
33 of 38
are fragments of cells that clot blood at the site of a wound
34 of 38
What does oxygen + haemoglobin form?
35 of 38
Xylem is...
a plant tissue used to transport water and minerals up a plant
36 of 38
Phloem is...
a plant tissue that carries sugar from leaves to rest of plant
37 of 38
What is homeostasis?
Keeping all the of the internal conditions of the body at optimum level
