Remember that…

  • All living things are made ofcells.
  • Cells are always experiencing changing environments!
  • Outside ChangeInside Change
  • Cells need to maintainbalance….

review cell membranes
REVIEW:Cell Membranes

Continue Learning

  • REMEMBER:
    • Cell Membranes are the outer covering of cells.
    • Cell Membranes are semi-permeable… only some things can enter and leave!
    • Cell Membranes are a made of 2 lipid layers with channels!

Watch the animation below.

Questions to Think About:1. What do you think the dots represent?2. How many dots start in the corner, compared to the rest of the box?3. How do the dots move? Which direction?4. What is the end result?

diffusion equilibrium 1 5
DIFFUSION: Equilibrium (1/5)

Continue Learning

Re-TakeQuiz

  • Particles (Molecules and Atoms) need to be balanced out…

This is NOT balanced!

Notice all of the dye-particles

are concentrated in the

center and bottom of the water!

This IS balanced!

Notice the dye particles are

now spread out throughout

the water!

“Balance” = Equilibrium

diffusion definition 2 5
DIFFUSION: Definition (2/5)

Continue Learning

Re-TakeQuiz

  • Diffusion is the movement of particles from HIGH to LOW concentration, ultimately reaching equilibrium (without the use of ENERGY)!

BALANCED

Particles are claustrophobic, they like to be spread out and have their own equal spaces!

Remember to Think About:

  • What do you think the dots represent?
  • How many dots start in the corner, compared to the rest of the box?
  • How do the dots move? Which direction?
  • What is the end result?

The dots/particles move from an area with MORE (High Concentration), to an area with LESS (Lower Concentration)!

The dots/particles are evenly spread out and balanced (in Equilibrium)!

The dots are particles (molecules or atoms).

There are way more dots/particles in the one corner, than the rest of the box!

Re-TakeQuiz

Diffusion of Dye particles/molecules:

  • Dye particles all start on top of water….HIGH Concentration!
  • Dye particles need to be balanced…
  • Dye particles move to areas with LOWER Concentration (fewer particles)
  • Dye particles reach EQUILIBRIUM!

Re-TakeQuiz

DIFFUSION: Example (4/5)

End: The number of particles on the inside & outside of the cell is balanced! EQUILIBRIUM!

Start: There are tons of particles outside the cell, and none on the inside!

Particles move across the Cell Membrane from HIGH to LOW concentration!

OSMOSIS: Solutes & Solvents (1/4)

Solutes are the “stuff”

dissolved in solvents…

Most solvents can move

across a cell membrane…

Most solutes cannot!

Solvents are the “stuff” that hold the solutes (usually water)!

Osmosis is the movement of water from LOW solute concentration, to HIGH solute concentration (without the use of ENERGY)!

Particles move when

there’s imbalance!

Water molecules are great friends, they like to make sure solute particles are never lonely!

Questions to Think About:1. How is distilled water different from tap water?2. What would cause the Red Blood Cell to explode?3. How is this related to diffusion?

Distilled water has NO solute particles in it… Tap water has a variety of solute particles in it!

HIGH solute concentration inside the Red Blood Cell, LOW solute concentration outside… WATER rushes into the cell!

Water is diffusing into the Red Blood Cell from HIGH water concentration to LOW water concentration.
