  2. 2. 27/05/13DiffusionDiffusionDiffusion is when something travels from an area of highconcentration to an area of low concentration. For example,consider the scent from a hamburger…The “scent particles” fromthis hamburger are in highconcentration here:Eventually they will“diffuse” out into this areaof low concentration:
  3. 3. 27/05/13DiffusionDiffusionCells use diffusion to swapthe oxygen they need forthe carbon dioxide theyno longer want:Other examples of where diffusion happens in humans:Alveoli in the lungs Villi in the intestinesOxygendiffuses inOut goeswaste CO2
  4. 4. 27/05/13The digestive systemThe digestive systemThe whole point of digestion is to break down our food sothat we can get the bits we need from it…The main foodsaffected areCARBOHYDRATES –these are broken downinto GLUCOSE

  7. 7. 27/05/13Gas exchangeGas exchangeAlveoli are very good at exchanging gases because…1) They have a LARGE surface area2) They have a good blood supply3) They are moist
  8. 8. 27/05/13RespirationRespirationRespiration is the chemical reaction the cells in our bodiesuse to release ________. The equation:Glucose + _____ Carbon dioxide + _____ + ENERGYGlucose is provided by ______ and oxygen is provided whenwe __________.

  15. 15. 27/05/13Three factors can affect photosynthesis:Three factors can affect photosynthesis:1. Temperature – the best temperature isabout 300C – anything above 400C will slowphotosynthesis right down2. CO2 – if there is more carbon dioxidephotosynthesis will happen quicker3. Light – if there is more lightphotosynthesis happens faster
  16. 16. 27/05/13Drawing graphs of these factorsDrawing graphs of these factors1. TemperaturePhotosynthesis is controlled byenzymes – these are destroyedat temperatures above 400C2. Carbon dioxide3. LightPhotosynthesis increases atfirst but is then limited by alack of increase in temp or CO2Photosynthesis increases atfirst but is then limited by alack of increase in temp or light
  17. 17. 27/05/13HomeostasisHomeostasisHomeostasis means “controlling internal conditions”:Waste products that need to be removed + howCO2UreaInternal conditions that need controlling + howTemperatureIon contentWater contentProduced by respiration, removed via lungsProduced by liver breaking down amino acids,removed by kidneys and transferred to bladderIncreased by shivering, lost by sweatingIncreased by eating, lost by sweating + urineIncreased by drinking, lost by sweating + urineSome of these processes are controlled by HORMONES. Hormones arechemical messengers produced by glands and transported in the blood.
  18. 18. 27/05/13KidneysKidneysBlood inBlood outUreter (tube that takesurine down to bladder)Kidneys are made up of twoimportant tissues – BLOODVESSELS and TUBULES.Kidneys are responsible for controlling ion, urea andwater content.
  19. 19. 27/05/13KidneysKidneysKidneys work in 3 stages:1. ULTRAFILTRATION - Lots of water andproducts of digestion are squeezed out ofthe blood and into tubules under pressure.3. WASTE – excess water, excess ions andany urea are now removed through theureter2. SELECTIVE REABSORPTION – the bloodtakes back the things it wants (e.g. glucoseand ions) even though this means goingagainst a concentration gradient.Blood vessel Tubule
  20. 20. 27/05/13Controlling water contentControlling water contentThe amount of water reabsorbed into the blood vessels inthe kidney is controlled by the hormone ADH:
  21. 21. 27/05/13Controlling body temperatureControlling body temperatureBody temperature is controlled by the thermo-regulatorycentre in the ________.

  39. 39. 27/05/13AlkenesAlkenesAlkenes are different to alkanes; they contain DOUBLECOVALENT bonds. For example:Ethane EtheneButane ButeneThis double bond means that alkenes have the potential to joinwith other molecules – this make them REACTIVE. We cantest for alkenes because they turn bromine water colourless.ALKANESALKENES
  40. 40. 27/05/13Carbon dioxide in the atmosphereCarbon dioxide in the atmosphereThe amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is affected by 3 things:1) Geological activity moves carbonate rocks deep intothe Earth and they release ______ _______ into theatmosphere during volcanic activity.2) When fossil fuels are burned the carboncontained in them reacts with _____ to form CO2.3) Increased CO2 in the atmosphere causes a reactionbetween it and _______.

These circuits may be needed to operate a device that takesa much _____ current, e.g. a _________. To do this the circuit wouldneed a RELAY switch, a device made of an _______ that can operate aswitch. A relay switch is activated by the small current and the switchpart is placed in the circuit needing a large current:Symbolfor relay:Words – motor, larger,electromagnet, smallM
