The scientific study of biology covers all of the bases of life, looking at bacteria, animals, plants and oh so much more, but in the following quiz, we’ll be taking a closer look under the microscope to see what little building blocks are used to make up all of these organisms; the cells! What do you know about the cell, its structure, and its many functions? Take the quiz to find out!
Double bond "kinks" in the unsaturated fatty acid layer
None - there is no cholesterol in a phospholipid bilayer.
The cholesterol helps keep the membrane fluid.
The cholesterol helps stabilize and keep the bilayer warm and fluid at colder temperatures.
They do not allow any substances to pass through.
They allow all substances to pass through.
They allow some substances to pass through.
The tendency for particles to spread out evenly in an available space.
A chemical process that releases energy.
Another word for the photosynthesis process.
The red dye will stay on one side of the membrane.
All of the red dye will move to the other side of the membrane.
Some of the red dye will move to the other side until both sides of the membrane are equally filled with red dye molecules.
More water will migrate through the membrane towards the side with MORE glucose molecules
More water will migrate through the membrane towards the side with FEWER glucose molecules
A solution with a solute concentration lower than that of a cell
A solution with a solute concentration higher than that of a cell
A solution with a solute concentration equal to that of a cell
Transport certain solutes through the cell membrane
Transport DNA instructions to ribosomes
Turn the phospholipid bilayer inside-out
A type of blood cell
A base solution
A membrane protein that allows the rapid entry and exit of water molecules.
Thermal energy (random movement of atoms/molecules)
Light energy (used for photosynthesis)
Both A and B
The rhythmic breathing of a cell
Energy conversion (converting "food" energy to ATP)
