What do most human/animal cells contain?
Nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes.
1 of 31
What is a nucleus?
Where the cell's activity is controlled.
2 of 31
What is cytoplasm?
Where chemical reactions take place.
3 of 31
What is a cell membrane?
Where he movement of materials in and our of a cell are controlled.
4 of 31
What is mitochondria?
Where energy is released during aerobic respiration.
5 of 31
What are ribosomes?
Where protein synthesis takes place.
6 of 31
What do plant and algae cells contain?
Nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria, ribosome, chloroplasts and a permanent vacuole filled with sap.
7 of 31
What is a cell wall?
A rigid wall for support that is made of cellulose.
8 of 31
What do chloroplasts contain?
Chlorophyll for photosynthesis. The chloroplast absorb light energy to make food.
9 of 31
What size are bacteria?
Very small and can only be seen with a powerful microscope. They can be seen by the naked eye when they form a colony.
10 of 31
What do bacteria contain?
A membrane and a cell wall which surround cytoplasm. They do not have a nucleus so the genetic material is in the cytoplasm.
11 of 31
What is yeast?
A single celled organism. They have a nucleus, cytoplasm, and a membrane surrounded by a cell wall.
12 of 31
Why would a cell have many mitochondria?
It must need a lot of energy e.g. muscle cells.
13 of 31
Why would a cell have many ribosomes?
It must be making a lot of protein e.g. gland cells.
14 of 31
Why would a cell have a tail?
So it can move fast.
15 of 31
What do receptor cells have?
Specialised structures which enable them to detect stimuli.
16 of 31
Why are neuron cells specialised?
So they can carry impulses from the receptor to the CNS.
17 of 31
Why would a plant leaf cells have many chloroplasts?
So it can photosynthesise.
18 of 31
What do root hair cells do?
Increase the surface area of the root so that it can absorb water and mineral ions efficiently.
19 of 31
What is diffusion?
The spreading out of the particles of as fas, or any substance in a solution.
20 of 31
What does the net movement into or out of cells depend on?
The concentration of the particles on each side of the cell membrane.
21 of 31
Why is there a net movement?
Because the particles move randomly from an area of high concentration to an area of lower concentration.
22 of 31
What is the concentration gradient?
The difference in concentration between two areas. The larger the difference in concentration, the faster the rate of diffusion.
23 of 31
What is an example of diffusion?
The diffusion of oxygen into the cells of the body from the bloodstream as the cells are respiring.
24 of 31
What is a tissue?
A group of cells with similar structure and function.
25 of 31
What happens during the development of multicellular organisms?
The cells differentiate.
26 of 31
Give examples of animal tissue?
Muscle tissue - which contracts to move. Glandular tissue - produces substances such as enzymes or hormones. Epithelial tissue - covers some parts of the body.
27 of 31
Give examples of plant tissue?
Epidermal tissue - covers the plant. Mesophyll - photosynthesises. Xylem and Phloem - transport substances around the plant.
28 of 31
What is the stomach made of?
Muscular tissue to churn the stomach contents. Glandular tissue to produce digestive juices. Epithelial tissue to cover the outside and inside of the stomach.
29 of 31
Why must food be changed from insoluble molecules to soluble molecules?
So that it can be absorbed in the blood. The digestive system is responsible for this.
30 of 31
Describe the digestive system?
Glands - produce juices. Stomach and small intestine - digestion. Liver - produces bile. Small intestine - absorbtion of soluble food. Large intestine - water is absorbed from undigested food to produce faeces.
