What is a microscope with two
lenses called?

a compound microscope

1

What is another name Hooke gave
for cells?

it is called "small rooms" and "cells"

2

Describe a convex lens.

-it has a center thicker than that is the thicker than the edge
-when light passes through a convex lens and into your eye, the image you see is magnified

3

What cell parts do plant cells have
that animal cells do not have? What
are their functions?

chloroplasts- makes food for plant cells using energy from sunlight
cell wall- supports and protects

4

What is the major difference
between a compound microscope and an
electron microscope?

compound microscope- uses two lenses at once and light
electron microscope- uses a beam of electrons

5

A microscope makes close objects
look?

bigger

6

What are some functions of a cell
wall?

A plant's cell wall helps protect and support the cell

7

What are the 3 parts of the Cell
Theory?

- living things are composed of cells
- cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things
- all cells are produced from other cells

8

How do you find the total
magnification
Of a microscope?

first you multiply the eyepiece times the nosepiece and then your answer is the eyepiece times the nosepiece with a x after it

9

What is the nucleus’ function?

the nucleus acts as a cell's control center, directing all of the cells activities

10

What is resolution?

It is the degree to which two separate structures that are close together can be distinguished, better resolution shows more detail

11

What are the basic units of function and
structure in living things?

cells

12

What is the function of a cell
membrane?

a cell membrane controls which substances pass into and out of a cell

13

What are the three ways cells are
organized in a multicellular
organism?

tissue, organs, organ system

14

an organism's functions are the processes that enable it to live, grow, and reproduce, those functions include _________ ____________, ________, __________, and _________ ____ ____ _________.

-obtaining oxygen
-food
-water
-getting rid of wastes

15

you need _______ to live

cells

16

Mitochondria and chloroplasts are two types of _________

organelles

17

smallest to largest level

cell, tissue, organ, organ system, organism

18

A certain cell can no longer package and release materials out of the cell. Which of the cells organelles is not working?

Golgi Apparatus

19

true/false
(Telescopes) are instruments that can magnify very small objects

False microscopes

21

True/false
Cells were first observed by (Robert Hooke)

True

22

True/false
(Light microscopes)use beams of electrons to produce magnified images

False Electron microscopes

23

True/false
(Resolution)is the condition when objects appear larger than they really are

False. Magnification

24

True/false
(Magnification) is the ability to distinguish details on an object

False. Resolution

25

True/false
If a compound microscope has a 10x lens in its eyepiece and a 20x lens in it's nosepiece, it's total magnification is (100x)

False 200x
