    d. This lab clearly demonstrated that cells maximize surface area to volume ratios. With a greater surface area, diffusion takes place over a larger surface and is much more effective. Cells rely on movement of particles through diffusion to carry out activities. If cells were too big, diffusion would take too long because although there is still a large surface in which diffusion can occur, the large volume catches up to the surface area and requires more diffusion. The .5x.5x.5 cm agar cube demonstrated using the ratio of 12:1 as an advantage; the cube completely changed color, meaning diffusion successfully occurred, in only an average of 3.17 minutes. Having a greater surface area than volume in this ratio allowed diffusion to occur over…

  • Gas Exchange

    Gas Exchange Gas exchange is the process in which gases enter and leave a body by diffusion across gas exchange surfaces. Gas exchange is important as it transfers oxygen from surroundings of an organism to individual cells in the organism’s body, needed by the cells for respiration to occur. Carbon dioxide is released. This process produces energy which is essential to an organism for survival. Group 1 – Insects The definition of an insect is any of a group of small and often winged animals…

  • Water Concentration Lab Report

    As stated in the introduction the hypothesis for this experiment was that the solution beginning with the higher concentration of KMnO4 and placed in water with the warmer temperature will diffuse through the artificial membrane quicker than the solutions beginning with the already diluted solutions and placed in water at a cooler temperature. This occurring because all of the solutions are trying to diffuse to where it is less concentrated because they are eager to diffuse down its…

  • Cell Transport And Permeability Essay

    Ribosomes are the actual site of protein synthesis (Marieb P44). The packaging of proteins and other substances that are being ready to be exported out of the cell and into the plasma membrane is done by the golgi apparatus. From there, the plasma membrane has two processes of exportation, active and passive processes. Passive transport has two important processes known as diffusion and filtration, diffusion being most important because it is the means of transportation for every cell in the…

  • Endocytosis And Osmosis

    different ways that it allows molecules and ions to cross its membrane, including bulk transport, osmosis, passive transport, and active transport. The purpose of the cell membrane is to protect the cell and only allow specific substances to cross the membrane, such as amino acids or water. Lipids hold the membrane together, along with proteins and carbohydrates. These lipids are saturated or unsaturated, and have a hydrophilic head. The tails hold the membrane together due to their fear of…

  • Diffusion And Osmosis

    Particles can move. One type of movement is diffusion. Diffusion is when particles move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. The particles can move throughout a liquid, an area , or through a semipermeable membrane. Diffusion can be facilitated or non facilitated. When no other factors are involved in diffusion the particles are moving down their concentration gradient so that the amount of particles can be evenly distributed. if proteins or helpers are…

  • Diffusion And Osmosis Lab Report

    Amber Rosales Marco Avalos Lab Section 2011. 21 1 October 2015 Diffusion and Osmosis There are many processes and systems that help maintain our body’s homeostasis and ability to function. These processes can be traced right down to a cellular level. However, if a process at this level were to be disrupted, it can create a ripple affect that can target major life functions or cause a long-term illness. It is processes such as Osmosis and Diffusion that contribute to our state of being and…

  • The Importance Of Diffusion

    Diffusion is important because it is how particles are moved into a cell and out. Diffusion is the movement of a particle from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration (Reasoner 2011). Passive diffusion and facilitated diffusion are the two major types of diffusions. Passive diffusion, also known as simple diffusion, is when particles move freely through the lipid bilayer of the plasma membrane (Tortora and Derrickson 2014). Facilitated diffusion is when and integral…

  • What´s Multiparticulate Drug Delivery System?

    Reservoir Systems consist of a hollow inner core and a polymer membrane, there to control the rate of drug diffusion. Drug diffusion across the membrane is rate limited and controls general drug release rate (Bajpai et al. 2008). For reservoir systems drug release normally remains steady resulting in a zero order profile (Raval, Parikh and Engineer, 2010). Another technology is called the Multiparticulate drug delivery system which consists of microencapsulated granules/beads containing drug…
