diffusion
the movement of a substance from an area of higher / greater concentration to an area of lesser concentration. This movement will continue until the two areas have equal concentrations of a substance.
osmosis
diffusion of water through a membrane.. to maintain the balance of water inside and outside of a cell
cell respiration
a life process of using oxygen to release stored energy by breaking down sugar molecules -- takes place in the cell's mitochondria -- both animal and plant cells
fermentation
a life process to allow a cell to get energy when oxygen is not available; some cells get energy from sugar by only partly breaking down the sugar
photosynthesis
a life process by which light energy is used to make food in plant cells only
Vacuole
Found in plants and some single-celled organisms- filled with liquid.
nucleus
This is bound by a double membrane- it contains the cell's DNA.
chloroplast
This is found in all higher plant cells- contains chlorophyll- -- where photosynthesis takes place.
mitosis
a cell divides into two exact copies of itself
cell transport
a process of diffusion where substances move into or out of a cell
chloroplasts
an organelle inside of which the process of photosynthesis takes place in a plant cell
theory
an explanation of events or of relationships in the natural world
cell theory
an explanation of the parts of a cell and the explanation of the functions and processes inside of a cell

osmosis
diffusion of water through a membrane.. to maintain the balance of water inside and outside of a cell
Centrioles
Made from Microtubules- form a pair of structures- located near the nucleus.

This provides a skeletal structure to a cell.
