    Thin - less distance to diffuse
    Large internal surface area - air spaces in the spongy mesophyll layer mean there is more area for gas exchange
    Stomata - allow gases to flow in and out

    What happens in coronary heart disease?
    A high level of cholesterol/fat builds up in the coronary artery, restricting blood flow to the heart, which can lead to a heart attack.

    Describe the contributions of Galen and William Harvey to blood circulation and the heart.

    A contractile vacuole can be used so that any excess water is stored into it. The contractile vacuole attaches to the cell membrane and water is emptied out. It can be used to prevent water (e.g in a river) from diffusing too much into the amoeba.

    Give 3 ways in which leaves are adapted to increase the rate diffusion of carbon dioxide and water.

    Come on guys we're doing much faster question-answer stuff on google hangouts and we're sharing revision. We're only using chat though so don't be shy.

    Galen said blood was produced in the liver and moved in a tide between the liver and heart and he said that blood moved through invisible holes in the septum.

    Harvey said that the heart pumped the blood away from the heart through the arteries and blood travelled into the heart through veins which have valves to prevent back flow.

    What are the saprophytes role in decay? and how do they play their role?

    Not really a lesson, we're just asking each other questions on chat as practice for the exam. PM ryan your gmail if you're interested.

    Question and answer guys? if anyone's up for it :P


    Explain how the elbow joint acting as a pivot is an advantage (in terms of arm movement)?
    it increase the effort and therefore results to a great force...

    Saprophytes decompose dead materials release nutrients needed for plants to grow. They play their role by releasing enzymes to break food outside and when the food is digested they reabsorb the simple soluble molucle...

    Explain how DNA fingerprints are produced?

    this is true put I asked about decay not plant growth :P by breaking down detritus the saprophytes increase the surface area of the plant material making it easier for micro-organisms to feed on the particles, speeding up decay

    First a sample of DNA is extracted from human body tissue
    Then it is fragmented using restriction enzymes
    Then is is separated using electrophoresis
    Then the DNA finger print is visualised using a radioactive probe.

    There is shortage of housing, the medical use will be higher so will cause taxpayers to pay more and people will live to old so therefore more pensions will be given out which is a bad thing for the government.

    On a personal level, it can give you a longer retirement but can also increase the chances of receiving an age-related disease. From a national level, it can provide extra burden/pressure on medical supplies.

    Here's one: what do amniocentesis and chromosomal analysis do during foetal scanning and give an ethical issue that arises due to this.
