Q:

How can one make a 3-D plant cell?

A:

To make a 3-D plant cell, gather materials like yarn, salt dough, candy, cake, clay or beads, and then determine what plant cell that the model will be fashioned after and use the materials to make it. Making a 3-D plant cell is fun and provides the ability to see in detail the parts of a plant cell.

The following is how to make a 3-D plant cell out of modeling compound.

  1. Find image of plant cell
  2. Make sure to find a detailed image that shows all the properties of a plant cell

  3. Make parts of the cell
  4. Take a portion of the model magic and form the nucleus, cell wall, chloroplasts and other cell parts. Make sure to use different colors so it is easy to identify.

  5. Make cytoplasm
  6. Take school glue and apply in between nuclear envelope and cell membrane. Let this dry for at least 24 hours.

  7. Identify the cell parts
  8. Take construction paper and cut it into strips. Glue the model to a poster board. Take the strips and write down the cell parts. Glue the strips to the poster with the other end attached to a cell part.

    What is the equation for cellular respiration?

    A:

    The simplified reaction for aerobic cellular respiration is: C6H12O6 (s) + 6 O2 (g) ? 6 CO2 (g) + 6 H2O (l) + energy. The process of cellular respiration uses one molecule of glucose and, in the presence of molecular oxygen, turns it into adenosine triphosphate.

    What is a good analogy for the functioning of the nucleolus?

    A:

    The best analogy for the nucleolus in eukaryotic cells is a factory that makes tools that are used to build other resources. The primary function of the nucleolus is to combine and construct ribosomes. The primary function of ribosomes is to build proteins necessary for the cell.

    What is an electron?

    A:

    An electron is a negatively charged subatomic particle that orbits around the nucleus of an atom. The negative charge of the electrons is balanced by the positive charge of the protons in the nucleus. Electrons have a much lower mass than protons.
