  • Cell Structures Cells From A Living Thing
    4,961 words
    Living things make up the world as we know it. Living things are involved in our life constantly, seeing that we are alive. There are five characteristics that are common to all living things. Living things are made up of one or more cells. Each cell is made up of living matter and is separated by a barrier that encloses the cell from its surroundings. However, there are many different kinds of cells that make up living things. A single cell can be one organism. These organisms are known as unic...
  • Extra Electrons On The N Side
    1,711 words
    Photovoltaic cells are solid state devices that convert light directly into electricity. Photovoltaic literally means "light electricity". These devices can be commonly found providing power for small scale devices such as calculators, watches, and small radios. However, they are not limited to small scale systems. They are also used to power satellites, communications equipment, houses and many other things, especially in remote locations where a power grid is not readily available. In isolated...

A: Aerobic - Oxidative formation of ATP by the use of O 2. Anaerobic - Formation of ATP via the PC pathway and glycolysis that doesn't involve the use of O 2. (Exercise Physiology Theory and Application to Fitness and Performance by Scott K. Powers & Edward T. Howley pg 29) 2. Discuss the function of glycolysis in bioenergetics. What role does NAD play in gly...
  • Active Transport The Cell
    563 words
    1.) Cellular Transport. Osmosis Osmosis is the diffusion of water molecules across a differentially permeable membrane from a region where water molecules are more concentrated to one where they are less concentrated. The transport of water is simple the cell being selectively permeable will allow water through it until an equilibrium is reached and at that time water will flow both in and out of the cell maintaining the equilibrium. For example a red blood cell is placed into a isotonic solutio...
  • Fuel Cell
    399 words
    Fuel Cell: Fuel cells have been known to science for 150 years and have become the subject of intense research since World War II. A fuel cell generates electricity by producing a chemical reaction. It consists of two electrodes (cathode and anode), which is also where the reaction occurs. Hydrogen is the basic fuel cell, but all fuel cells also require oxygen, and both are supplied from external reservoirs. Most of the hydrogen and oxygen used, combine to form a harmless byproduct, namely water...
  • Energy To Every Cell In Our Bodies
    2,194 words
    Melatonin And The Pineal Gland Set deep in our brains is a tiny gland called the pineal gland. This tiny gland is in charge of the endocrine system, the glandular system that controls most of our bodily functions. The pineal runs our OE body clocks', and it produces melatonin; the hormone that may prove to be the biggest medical discovery since penicillin, and the key to controlling the aging process. The pineal gland controls such functions as our sleeping cycle and the change of body temperatu...
  • Valence Electron Substitution From Atom To Atom
    1,186 words
    Solar cells Solar cells today are mostly made of silicon, one of the most common elements on Earth. The crystalline silicon solar cell was one of the first types to be developed and it is still the most common type in use today. They do not pollute the atmosphere and they leave behind no harmful waste products. Photovoltaic cells work effectively even in cloudy weather and unlike solar heaters, are more efficient at low temperatures. They do their job silently and there are no moving parts to we...
  • Cell Organization
    903 words
    RED 1. Chloroplasts are small containers, which hold chlorophyll. 2. Endo symbiosis is the hypothesis which states that mitochondria started as bacteria absorbed by single celled organisms. 3. The cell theory is a theory that tells of information known about cells. 4. When reproducing, to create offspring you must pass on your own DNA. 5. Gamete is the reproductive cell, which contains half the chromosomes to create life. 6. Cytokinesis is the process of cell division, which splits the cytoplasm...
  • Second Stage Of Cellular Respiration
    809 words
    Mitochondria Mitochondria are tiny organelles found in nearly all eukaryotic cells. They are rather large organelles ranging from 0.5 um to 10 um in length and 1 um in diameter. The mitochondria are the energy factories of the cell and are located in the cytoplasm. They are the sites of cellular respiration. The mitochondria are responsible for generating ATP from such organic fuels as simple sugars and fats in the process of cellular respiration. This doubled-membrane organelle has its own DNA ...
  • 3 1 A Fuel Cell
    2,051 words
    Introduction 1.0 "Renewable Energy" is the term used to describe those energy flows that occur naturally and repeatedly in the environment, e.g. from the sun, wind and the oceans, and from plants and the fall of water. It also refers to the energy available from wastes and to the emerging clean technology of fuel cells. There are wide ranges of renewable energy sources / technologies, varying in technical and commercial viability. These include: o Solar Power (Photovoltaic) o Hydro - electric Po...
  • 2 Oxidation Of Fat Acids
    570 words
    I. Introduction Out of all the organelles there are two that have fascinated microbiologists for the past hundred years. The first is the mitochondria, nicknamed the 'powerhouse of the cell. ' The second is the chloroplast in plant cells that have functions similar to those of the mitochondria. What do these organelles do? What are the similarities and differences of these organelles? This essay will help you to understand these two fascinating organelles. II. Mitochondria Mitochondria are small...
  • Reactions Transfer Electrons And Energy
    2,232 words
    By GERARD CHRETIEN BIOLOGY Cellular Pathways Several principles govern metabolic pathways in the cell: A. Complex chemical transformations in the cell do not occur in a single reaction, but in a number of small steps that are connected in a pathway. B. Each reaction is catalyzed by a specific enzyme. C. Metabolic pathways is catalyzed by a specific enzyme. D. Many metabolic pathways are compartmentalized, with certain steps occurring inside an organelle. E. Metabolic pathways in organisms are re...
  • Photosynthetic Proteins
    474 words
    Summary: Researchers have developed a solar cell that converts sunlight into energy through the photosynthetic's of plants. Grounded and purified spinach to harvest photosynthetic proteins. They did this because this released a necessary protein. Proteins act as cell membranes, allowing the functioning of proteins outside their natural environment. Proteins absorb light and deflect electrons in order to create an electric current. When the photosynthetic proteins are taken out of their environme...

  • Outer Membrane Of The Mitochondria
    1,038 words
    Mitochondria are the cells power sources of the cell. They are distinct organelles with two membranes. Usually they are rod-shaped, however they can be round. The mitochondria are organelles enclosed in a double membrane of phospho glycerides. Between the two membranes of the mitochondrion lies a region known as the intermediate space. The inner membrane is folded inward, producing what is known as cristae. These folds increase surface area, and enclose the mitochondria matrix. There are enzymes...
