SC121 Unit 4 Assignment PART 1 Do not forget to add your references and citations. The references will go on the last page. 1. Why are cells important to the body? What do they do for us that makes them indispensable? (75-word minimum) Life without any working cells is impossible. Every living thing needs cells. They provide: protection from viruses and infections, help heal wounds, grow your hair and nails, they come together to help function (like writing this paper or combing your hair or even sleeping.), Controls what happens in/out the body, break down food to be able to “let it go”, provide energy to the body to be able to function, help with viewing yourself in the mirror or viewing anything in general, helps see different pigments, provides proteins to the body. 2. Which cell organelle do you think would kill you the fastest if you lost it? Include an explanation of the normal functioning of the organelle in the body when it is present and connect that to what would happen if we lost it. Defend your logic and thoroughly explain. (75-word minimum) Loss of the Mitochondrion would have the ability to kill you the fastest. They are the power generators of the cell, converting oxygen and nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP). APT is a chemical in the mitochondrion that has the ability to power the cell's metabolic activities. The process of this is called aerobic respiration, which is the reason animals breathe oxygen. Higher people (or animals) wouldn't be able to function because they would only come into possession of energy from aerobic respiration when there is no oxygen present. 3. In our lives, many things have a certain form and shape that help with their function (ex. the nozzle of a spray bottle). Choose anything (does not have to be related to the body) and discuss that relationship. Then think about your cells – they too have certain forms that help with function. Discuss this relationship. Then further discuss the examples provided below. (100-word minimum) a. Sperm cell b. Red blood cell c. Nerve cell I hope I'm doing this one right. Please, let me know if I have done this incorrectly and describe more in detail how I am supposed to answer the 1st part of this question and ill give another example via email just for fun and to make sure I am getting it correctly. The tip of a marker is what I chose to describe how many markers/pens/pencils/crayons provide different functions when guiding them to write. It depends on the size and/or shape of a marker to be able to color/write the way you would want.
