Flashcards in Cells Deck (26):
1

Resolution

Resolutions is where an organism breaths in to brake the energy out of food

2

Specialised cells

A specialised cell is a cell that is only built for one job. So a nerve cell cannot take over a white blood cells job.

3

Magification

Magnification is where an object gets magnified

4

Cell wall

The cell wall surrounds the plant cell and supports it

5

Red blood cell adaptations

Red blood cell adaptations is where a red blood cell adapts to the job it needs to do so in this case carrying blood round the organism.

6

Diffusion

Diffusion is where something of a high concentration moves into an area of low concentration.

7

Nerve cell adaptation

Nerve cell adaptation is where a nerve cell adapts to the job it needs to do so in this case telling the brain if we hurt ourselves or touch something hot.

8

Organism

An organism is a living thing like animals and plants. The way to tell of it is an organism is using mrs gren

9

Chloroplast

Chloroplast is where photosynthesis happens inside a plant cell

10

Microscope

The microscope zooms in on objects to small for the naked eye it helps us see cells.

11

Nucleus

The nucleus controls the cell and carries round all your DNA.

12

Vacuole

Vacuole holds something called cell sap to keep the plant cell firm.

13

Egg cell adaptations

Egg cell adaptation is where a egg cell adapts to the job it needs to do, so in this case waiting for a sperm cell to come and bury itself in side the egg cell

14

Rate of diffusion

The rate of diffusion is increased when:
The distance is decreased
The surface area is increased
Rate of diffusion is the speed a particle travels.

15

Cytoplasm

Cytoplasm is a jelly-like substance, where chemical reactions happen.

16

Specimen

Specimen is what you call an object your going to look at through a microscope.

17

Sperm cell adaptation

Sperm cell adaptation is where the sperm cell adapts to the job it needs to do, so in this case it adapts to swim along and find an egg to bury itself in but the egg cellonly lets one sperm cell in

18

Slide

A slide is a small piece of glass in a rectangular shape that you keep your species on.

19

Cell membrane

Controls what can get in and out of the cell.

20

Cell

Cells are inside every organisms some more than others. Cells make us look like who we are because some cells have DNA stored inside them.

21

Multicellular

Multicellular organisms are are plants and animals with more than one cell. We are multicellular because we have billions of cells.

22

Mitochondria

The mitorchondria is where most respiration reactions happen

23

Root hair cell adaptation

Root hair cell adaptation is where the root hair cell adapts to the job it needs to do, so in this case it adapts to take in water and minerals for plants

23

Unicellular organisms

Unicellular organisms are organisms with just one cell so it will look a bit like that cell. They have adapted to their environment.

24

MRS GREN


M Movement All living things move, even plants
R Respiration Getting energy from food
S Sensitivity (Detecting changes in the surroundings

G Growth All living things grow
R Reproduction Making more living things of the same type
E Excretion Getting rid of waste
N Nutrition Taking in and using food

25

Binary fission

Binary fission is where cell duplicate then split in half to heal the body.
