What is the nucleus?
Contains DNA
1 of 39
What is the cytoplasm?
Chemical reactions happen here controlled by enzymes
2 of 39
Whats the cell wall?
Supports the plant and gives it is shape
3 of 39
What the cell membrane?
Controls what goes in and out of the cell
4 of 39
What is ribosomes?
Protien made here
5 of 39
What is chloroplast?
Containing chlorophyll which traps sunlight durning photosynthesis
6 of 39
What is the digestive system made up of?
Different organs working together to digest food
7 of 39
Function of the mouth
Food is chewed and mixed with salvia
8 of 39
Function of gullet
Contracts and relaxes to move food down to the stomach
9 of 39
Function of stomach
Acid and enzymes are added to food here to start digestive protein
10 of 39
Function of liver
Makes bikes which is released into the small intestines.
11 of 39
Function of pancreas
Produces pancreatic juice and releases it into the small intestine which breaks down starch, protein and fats
12 of 39
Function of small intestine
More enzymes are added to food here to complete the digestion of fats, proteins and starch. Digested food is also absorbed into the blood
13 of 39
Function of large intestine
Water is absorbed from the undigested food into the blood here
14 of 39
Function of the rectum/anus
Faeces are stored here before passing out of the anus
15 of 39
What 2 tissues are found within a vein of a leaf?
Xylem and phloem
16 of 39
What does mesophyll mean?
Middle leaf
17 of 39
What 2 layers of a plant contain chloroplast?
Palisade and spongey
18 of 39
Whats the outermost layer of cells know as in a leaf?
19 of 39
Whats the waxy covering of a leaf known as?
20 of 39
What cells function to open and close the stomata of a leaf?
Guard cells
21 of 39
Whats part of the vein transports sugar in a leaf?
22 of 39
What the opening that allows for gas exchange in a leaf?
23 of 39
Whats the tubes called in a leaf that transport water?
24 of 39
Whats is discussion?
Movement of particles of a gas from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration , until evenly spread out
25 of 39
What do all living thing rely on to survive?
26 of 39
What is meant by a partially permeable membrane?
Let's small particles pass through
27 of 39
What do we mean by the term 'net movement'?
Overall movement of particles from high concentration to low concentration
28 of 39
How do cells adapt to facilitate diffusion?
1. Cells are permeable 2. They are thin to make it easy for substances to pass through 3. They are moist
29 of 39
What are the factors that effect the rate of diffusion?
Temperature-particles move faster at high temperature, state-particles in a liquid diffuse slower than in a gas, difference in concentration-greater the difference the faster grey rate of diffusion, size of the particles-larger particles, slower rate
30 of 39
What is light energy used for during photosynthesis?
Converts carbon dioxide and water to glucose. Oxygen is produced as a waste gas
31 of 39
What are the limiting factors of photosynthesis?
Light intensity, carbon dioxide concentration and temperature
32 of 39
Do all plants grow at the same rate?
33 of 39
Why is the sun important to plant?
To make food
34 of 39
What does chlorophyll do?
Traps sun light
35 of 39
In the stem, what are sugars converted into?
Oils, protein, celula
36 of 39
What do plant foods/fertiliser provide?
37 of 39
Is carbon dioxide lighter or heavier than air?
38 of 39
What happens when carbon dioxide is added to the leaf?
Photosynthesis goes up
