Flashcards in Cell Parts and Organelles Deck (11):
1

What is an organelle?

An organelle is a part of a cell located between the cell wall and the nucleus, surrounded by membrane

2

What is the function of the cell membrane?

The cell membrane controls what enters and exits the cell

3

What is the function of Mitochondria?

Mitochondria is the site of respiration - they release energy. This is where the oxygen in respiration is used.

4

What is the function of Ribosomes?

Ribosomes are the site of protein synthesis (it is where proteins are made)

5

What is the function of the cell wall?

The cell wall gives the cell structure and supports it

6

What occurs in cytoplasm?

Cytoplasm is where the chemical reactions occur

7

What is the function of Chloroplasts and what do they contain?

Chloroplasts absorb light for photo synthesis and contain chlorophyll

8

Which parts of the cell are not organelles?

The nucleus,
The cell wall,
The cell membrane

9

What is a cell?

It is the smallest unit of life that can replicate independently

They help us function properly and when a vast amount of them are combined they form an organism

10

Are these found in an animal cell, a plant cell, or both?:

Nucleus
Vacuole
Mitochondria
Cell wall
Cytoplasm
Cell Membrane
Chloroplast
Ribosomes

Nucleus: both
Vacuole: plant
Mitochondria: both
Cell wall: plant
Cell membrane: both
Chloroplasts: plant
Ribosomes: animal

11

Where does the chemical reactions occur?

The chemical reactions occur in cytoplasm
