    Can sucrose pass a partially permeable membrane??
    it didn't go through the membrane, it went through the cellulose cell wall because the cell membrane was moved away form the cell wall as the cell plasmolysed which left the area for the sucrose solution to enter as the cell wall has gaps in it.....I think? At least that's what I thought

    How are you revising for chemistry?Just past papers?
    Pretty much and just recapping topics that I don't understand very well

    Oh...I wrote H2o because it was a condensation reaction...will I get the mark? :/
    Depends... I wrote ATP but you're right in the sense that a condensation reaction release H20..

    By facilitated diffusion or active transport only as it is a polar molecule.

    Ah sehr interessant...I'm clueless as to how I should revise

    As far as I'm aware, W was the sucrose solution, and Z was the vacuolar membrane due to there being another line that identified the vacuole itself.

    What I got for the potato question was:

    - Plot a graph of change in mass (y axis) against sucrose concentration (x axis)
    - Draw line of best fit through points
    - Where the line intersects the sucrose concentration axis, this is the sucrose concentration of the potato tuber cell.
    - Student should then compare with data values in literature (etc.) to find corresponding water potential.

    When did any of this stuff even come up in the exam????? I didn't think about diffusion or active transport or anything ARGH

    Oh what did you put for ytour maths questions? Word on the street is that you're good at maths
    Where'd you hear that?

    6600% increase in oxygen
    1005 cm^3
    28% guanine

    Were there any other maths questions?

    Sounds good I said do more readings between the values 0.2 and 0.3 to determine the concentration of sucrose where the change in mass is zero rather than plot a calibration curve. Do u think this would be accepted?

    x=cell wall
    y=plasma membrane as during plasmolysis the plasma membrane is drawn away from cell wall
    z=tonoplast/vacoule as they never made that clear so could allow either.

    The questions 21ai) was there was no consistency of sucrose concentration (from table it went from 0.4 to 0.45 where as throughout it was a difference of 0./1)
    the second answer was size\amount of potato disc was not stated or controlled.

    21aii) The question where you explain how it shows the water potential within the potato discs. You had to use the figures and explain that the percentage decreased in mass as concentration increased as concentration of sucrose increased so therefore higher water potential was in potato and by osmosis water left potato sacs(whatever they called them) resulting in decrease of mass of potato disc.

    Guanine was 28% method= 22x2=44
    100-44/2=28

    The question based upon red blood cells lacking cell content answer was: increased surface area to volume ration and therefore maximum level of 02 can be transported to respiring tissues.

    Then the one about why red blood cells never used up 02 was because they never contained double membrane bound organelles such as mitochondria which uses 02 for aerobic respiration. (dont know if im correct)

    The question about the conservation when asking about small groups were isolated advantages where:
    if a disease arise will not wipe out whole population
    isolated therefore protected from predators and human hunted rhinos.

    Another question was filling in missing gaps went in order like this : KINGDOM=ANIMALIA
    Phylum, Class, Order, Fishes, Genus, Species=(in the question it said D.S... it was to copy the s part of name)
    the second part to questions was why is binomial system helpful this was because it avoids confusion across the world when classifying species.

    Last question was= bohr effect.

    ii) active respiring tissues have lower saturation of 02 because aerobic resp. takes place releasing more co2 at faster rate which in return reacts with water to form carbonic anhydrase which then dissociates to form h+ ions causing haemoglobin to unfold as the bonds are broken such as hydrogen and ionic and 02 is released. Or active tissues have low p02 so Hhb dissociates to release 02.

    cant remember the letters for the question after.

    last question was based on mass flow. Cotransportation occurs where sap is actively loaded companion cell then diffuse through plasmodesmata, at top of sieve tube elements theres high hydrostatic pressure therefore creates a pressure gradient and moves along gradient towards sink where they are unloaded. Mention flow of sap in one direction to gain mark for mass flow.

    Didnt even know tonoplast was a thing lol. I just put it was a vacuole

    X-cell wall
    Y-plasma membrane
    Z-vacuole

    W-air (had no idea)
    I put intracellular fluids i.e. amino acids for W, i had no idea either!

    For the question regarding what was located in W, it was the sucrose solution (Slightly diluted however). This is because the cell wall is permeable, which means as the plasma membrane withdraws the sucrose solution can pass through the cell wall and fill the gap.
