Essential knowledge 2 a 3

Essential knowledge 2.A.3:

Organisms must exchange matter with the environment to grow, reproduce and maintain organization.


Molecules and atoms from the environment are necessary to build new molecules
Molecules and atoms from the environment are necessary to build new molecules.

  • Carbon is at the base of all life

  • Carbon-most versatile building block of molecules. Why?

    - 4 valence electrons

  • Can form 4 single covalent bonds

  • Capable of forming double and triple covalent bonds

  • Can combine with atoms of many different elements


Carbon moves from the environment to organisms where it is used to build carbohydrates, proteins, lipids or nucleic acids.


Carbon moves from the environment to organisms where it is used to build carbohydrates, proteins, lipids or nucleic acids.


Nitrogen moves from the environment to organisms where it is used in building proteins and nucleic acids.


Nitrogen moves from the environment to organisms where it is used in building proteins and nucleic acids.

Nucleotides – monomers of

DNA and RNA


Phosphorus moves from the environment to organisms where it is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.

Phospholipid

Phospates make up the backbone of DNA and RNA


Properties of water
Properties of Water is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.

With a partner, write a few sentences about the properties of water that were observed in the weird water activities.

Compare and Contrast the following terms as they apply to the properties of water:

  • Cohesion

  • Adhesion

  • High specific heat capacity

  • Universal solvent supports reactions

  • Heat of vaporization

  • Heat of fusion

  • Water’s thermal conductivity


What makes water so weird
What makes water so weird? is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.

  • Most properties of water emerge because water is polar and hydrogen bonds form between adjacent water molecules.


Cohesion and adhesion
Cohesion and Adhesion is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.

  • Cohesion: Water is attracted to water

  • Adhesion: Water is attracted to other substances


Surface tension
Surface Tension is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.

  • The cohesive forces between liquid molecules are responsible for the phenomenon known as surface tension.

  • The cohesive forces between molecules in a liquid are shared with all neighboring molecules. Those on the surface have no neighboring molecules above and, thus, exhibit stronger attractive forces upon their nearest neighbors on and below the surface.


High specific heat capacity
High specific heat is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.capacity

  • This is why it takes so long to boil water!!


Universal solvent supports reactions
Universal solvent supports is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.reactions


Heat of vaporization
Heat of is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.vaporization


Heat of fusion
Heat of is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.fusion

  • water has a high heat of fusion, or the heat you need to take out of water to get it to solidify (freeze).

  • What all this means is that water can hold a lot of heat energy before it changes temperatures and states (solid to liquid to gas).

  • This property of water is great if you are an organism that lives in the water. Why, you might ask? A high heat of fusion means that, even if the temperature of the air changes a lot, water will shelter you from those changes and provide a pretty stable environment.


Water s thermal conductivity
Water’s thermal is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.conductivity

  • Even though only the bottom of the pot is heated, the temperature of all the water will quickly rise.


Lastly
Lastly … is used in nucleic acids and certain lipids.

Thanks Water!!

Surface area-to-volume ratios affect a biological system’s ability to obtain necessary resources or eliminate waste products


Why can t cells be extremely large
Why can’t cells be extremely large? ability to obtain necessary resources or eliminate waste products

  • As cells increase in volume, the relative surface area decreases and demand for material resources increases; more cellular structures are necessary to adequately exchange materials and energy with the environment.

  • These limitations restrict cell size.


Examples of tissues and cells that increases their surface are to maximize absorptions of nutrients and the elimination of waste.

Root hairs

  • Root hairs

  • Cells of the alveoli

  • Cells of the villi

  • Microvilli


What have we learned today about cells
What have we learned today about cells? are to maximize absorptions of nutrients and the elimination of waste.

  • The surface area of the plasma membrane must be large enough to adequately exchange materials;

  • smaller cells have a more favorable surface area-to-volume ratio for exchange of materials with the environment
