My teacher told me that the plasma membrane refers only to the membrane of organelles, however my specification seems to imply that it refers to the cell surface membrane. So, what does plasma membrane mean?
Thanks

It means both, cell surface membrane of the the whole cell is a plasma membrane but organelle membrane is also referred to as a plama membrane
