    Describe the differences of arteries,veins and capillaies
    Arteries - away form heart, thick walls, strong, elastic, high pressure
    Veins- to heart, low pressure, thin walls, big lumen, valves
    Capillaries - one cell thick (for diffusion), supply oxygen and food, remoe co2, really close to every cell, permeable walls

    The arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the body, this takes place at very high pressures therefore they have a very a small lumen but thick elastic fiber walls. The veins however don't travel at high pressure so they have a bigger lumen however they usually carry blood against the force of gravity so they have valves to prevent blood back flow. The capillaries have very thin walls enabling substances such as glucose to diffuse into desired cells efficiently.

    What is meant by the term "sustainable food production"
    Sustainable food production is producing food which is the most effeicent and least effective to the environment. It can be achieved by: eating food which has greater biomass by directly eating plants (shorten food chains), and farmers controlling the movement of animals so less energy is watsed so there is greater biomass availiable and lastly, contolling external conditions so the animals don't use energy from respiration to mantain body temperature ...

    went on too much :cool:

    Question: How does the heart effectively pump blood around the body? (6 marks)

    Answer: The heart receives oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium via the pulmonary vein. The atria will contract, moving the oxygenated blood to the left ventricle. When the left ventricle contracts, it forces the oxygenated blood up the aorta to the rest of the body. The body cells will use the oxygen and will send the deoxygenated blood back to the heart. The heart receives deoxygenated blood from the body to the right atrium via the vena cava. The atria will contract, moving the deoxygenated blood to the right ventricle. When the right ventricle contracts, it forces the deoxygenated blood up the pulmonary artery to the lungs again so that it can be re-oxygenated.

    How many marks would you give that?
