Transcript

  • 1. Homeostasis Stable internal condition
  • 2. Three requirements of living things
    • Exchanging gases (CO2 out; O2 in)
    • Taking in water, minerals, and food
    • Eliminating wastes
    • These tasks require molecules to move through the cell membrane.
  • 3. Exchanging gases (CO2 out; O2 in)
    • Taking in water, minerals, and food
    • Eliminating wastes
    • These tasks require molecules to move through the cell membrane.
  • 4. Molecule movement through membrane
    • Passive transport
      • No energy used by the cell
      • occurs naturally
    • Active transport
      • Requires energy by the cell to move molecules
  • 5. Three functions of cell membrane
    • Separate contents of cell from its surroundings
    • Controls movement of materials into and out of cell
    • Interacts with the environment surrounding the cell
  • 6. Cell Membrane http://www.wisc-online.com/objects/index_tj.asp?objID=AP1101
  • 7. Diffusion
    • Movement of molecules from a region in which they are highly concentrated to a region in which they are less concentrated.
    • It will continue until the system reaches equilibrium, which means the molecules are randomly distributed throughout the system.

  • 8. Equilibrium
    • Static- occurs when there is no action taking place
    • Dynamic-occurs when two opposing actions occur at the same rate but in opposite directions
  • 9. Factors of diffusion
    • Amount of kinetic energy (temperature)
    • Size of the molecule
      • Smaller molecules will move faster than larger ones
    • Charges on the molecues
    • Nature of material molecules are moving through
  • 10. Molecules permeable to cell membrane
    • Small molecues like:
      • CO2
      • O2
      • H2O
    • More oxygen would move into the cell then out if there is more oxygen outside the cell
