1.TO INVESTIGATE OF
DIFFERENT TYPE OF CELL TO THE FIXED SHAPED OF THE CELL
Does plant cell and animal cell have fixed shape?
Plant cell has a fixed shape but not animal cell
MV : type of cell/plant cell and animal cellRV : fixed shape of cellCV : One drop of methylene blue solution and distilled water
Apparatus and materials
Glass slide,cover slips,forcep,knife,microscope,toothpick,white tile/cutting board,methylene bluesolution,iodine solution,iodine solution,filter paper,distilled water,onion scale leaf,cheek cell
A scale leaf from an onion bulb are obtained2.
By using a forcep .the inner surface of onion scale leaf is peeled off 3.
One drop of distilled water was placed in the middle of glass slide4.
With a needle ,the cover slip is dropped slowly at 45
to the glass slide so that no air bubblebeing trapped5.
A drop of iodine solution was dropped at one side of the cover slip6.
A filter paper was placed at the opposite end of the opposite end of the cover slip to allow thespreading of solution absorbing excess solution7.
The slide is observed under a light microscope using a low power objective lens then high powerobjective lens8.
The plant structure is then drawn and recorded by using a microscope9.
This experiment is repeated using a cheek cell10.
The mouth is rinsed before starting with experiment11.
By using a toothpick, the inner mouth were scrapped to get some cheek cell12.
Then the cheek cell was placed onto a glass side13.
A drop of methylene blue solution was added14.
Slowly the cover slips was dropped, then the filter paper were placed at one end of the coverslip for irrigation15.
This slide is then observe and the structure was recorded by using a microscope16.
All the results are tabulated in a table
