The chemistry of life

The movement of substance through a cell membrane only by using the cells energy Active Transport
A flexible covering that protects the inside of a cell from the environment outside the cell Cell membrane
A series of chemical reactions that convert the energy in food molecules into a usable form of energy Cellular Respiration
The fluid or liquid part of a cell membrane that contains salt and other molecules. Cytoplasm
The movement of substance from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration Diffusion
The process during which a cell takes in a substance by surrounding the cell membrane Endocytosis
Process during which the cell's visicles release their contents outside the c3ell Exocytosis
The process by which molecules are too large to travel through using diffusion so they use special proteins called transport proteins Facilitated diffusion
A reaction that eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell can use to obtain energy from food when oxygen levels are low Fermentation
A process by which glucose, a sugar, is broken down into smaller molecules Glycolysis
The movement of substance through the cell membrane without the cells energy Passive Transport
A series of chemical reactions that convert light energy, water, and CO2 into the food energy molecule glucose and give off oxygen Photosynthesis
The diffusion of water molecules only through a membrane. Osmosis
Deals with the structure and behavior of living organisms Life Science
