AP Biology Name _Adeesh Jain_____________ Chapter 7 Guided Reading Assignment 1. What is resolving power and why is it important in biology? Resolving power is how far a two objects have to be (distance between two objects) to be able to recognize them as two objects. It is important in biology because everything we study in it is very small, and misunderstanding two things for one can lead to incorrect observations. 2. How does an electron microscope work and what is the difference between a scanning and transmission electron microscope? Electron microscopes send beams of electrons on the surface of the specimen or inside it. A scanning electron microscope (SEM) can see the surface of specimen whereas transmission electron microscopes (TEM) see the inside of a specimen, or the internal ultrastructure. 3. Describe the process and purpose of cell fractionation. Cell fractionation is the taking a cell apart and getting the individual organelles inside.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
