Essential Question: How and why do substances move across a cell membrane???

Questions: Notes:
Cell theory: well tested description made from multiple scientists
and discoveries from observations
Summarize the cell
theory Microscopes were used in 1600s
Level 1 Robert hook studied cork and saw that it looked like cells

of a phospholipid 3. New cells are produced from existing cells.
Level 2 Prokaryotic-no nucleus ex: bacteria
Eukaryotic- nucleus ex: animals, plants

What kinds of
macromolecules are found
in the cell membrane and
what are their uses?

Level 4 cell.
The membrane includes:
A lipid bilayer- a double sheet of phospholipids that provide a
flexible cell structure. Hydrophilic polar phosphate head and

world? push large polar objects through the cell membrane.
Level 5 Cholesterol makes it flexible
Carbohydrate chains- act as a chemical ID card
Fluid mosaic model: membrane is made up of many different
parts that freely move.

The cell theory is made from multiple observations and discoveries and explains what cells are. The cell
membrane is semi-permeable and made up of lipid bilayers. A lipid bilayer is made up of phosphate, polar,
hydrophilic heads and fatty acid, hydrophobic, non- polar tails. The bilayer serves as a flexible barrier for the cell.
There are also proteins and carbohydrates that make up the cell membrane.
Questions: Notes:
*A solution is the mixture of a solute and solvent.
Diffusion-molecules moving from areas of low concentration too areas of high
concentration. Ex: a sugar cube dissolving in water

Three kinds of diffusion:

1. Simple diffusion- particles move freely to reach equilibrium

osmosis. 3. Osmosis: diffusion of water across a cell membrane.
Level 3 Osmosis
Hypertonic-more solute outside of cell, cell shrinks
Hypotonic-more solute inside of cell, cell swells
Water either leaves, enters, or equally flows in both directions

real world? Requires apt energy
Level 5
There are two ways molecules move across a membrane- passive transport and active
transport. Passive transport is when molecules diffuse by following the concentration
gradient. This requires no atp. There is osmosis, simple diffusion, and facilitated
diffusion. There is hypotonic, htpertonic, and isotonic solutions in osmosis. Active
transport requires atp and the molecules move against the concentration gradient.
