1. what happens to oxygen/nutrients which diffuse into multicellular organisms?

  • The substances diffuse
  • The substances diffuse into cells in all layers
  • The oxygen/nutrients are used up by the outer layers of cells and so will not reach cells deeper within the body
  • The substances diffuse first in the deeper layers of cells, working their way to the outer layers

2. Animals that do which 2 things need more energy?

  • Animals which keep themselves warm and which are very active
  • Animals which regulate their body temperature and have a fast metabolism
  • Animals which have a fast metabolism and which sleep a lot

3. To allow animals to grow larger they need what?

  • A range of tissues & structural support to give the body strength
  • Bones and Ligaments
  • A large amount of cells to duplicate via mitosis
  • A range of systems in the body which support the growth

4. Diffusion alone cannot support larger organisms because...

  • they have a smaller surface-area-to-volume ratio so the surface area is not large enough to allow enough nutrients to diffuse into the organism
  • The pores across which substances diffuse become blocked by new cells from mitosis
  • the cells lose mitochondria which produce energy fo diffusion

5. Large surface-area-to-volume ratio limits what in organisms?

  • Growth
  • Heat loss
  • Reproduction
  • Digestion
