1 Life Sciences 2 Cells: The Working Units of Life Chapter 5 Dr. Joseph Esdin What Are Cells Made of? The Basic Unit of Life • Life requires a structural compartment separate from the external environment in which macromolecules can perform unique functions in a relatively constant internal environment • These “living compartments” are cells Robert Hooke • Hooke’s Law: F = -Kx • Most famous for his study of thin slice of cork under the microscope
