    What is diffusion?
    The movement of particles from an area of a higher concentration to an area of a lower concentration.

    What is active transport?
    The movement of particles against the concentration gradient. It require energy.

    How did the coeliac disease mean the person lost weight, had not enough vitamins and minerals and felt tired?
    Decreased surface area= less diffusion so less substances taken in by body- more excreted. Less capillaries= higher concentration of substances in blood so slower diffusion because less steep concentration gradient. Tiredness because of lack of glucose.

    Different parts of heart:
    Left ventricle
    Aorta

    Uses of valves in heart
    Prevent back flow so blood can be pumped around body

    Waste products 6 marker
    Carbon dioxide from respiration released by lungs during exhalation
    Urea from amino acids in liver released by kidneys during ultrafiltration, then send to bladder as urine and excreted
    Excess water and ions lost in ultrafiltration and selective reabsorbtion in kidneys then in excretion

    Warming up
    Vasoconstriction- vessels further from skin so less heat lost via radiation

    How shivering warms you up
    Muscles contract, which requires energy from respiration, which is an exothermic reaction, so releases heat and warms you up

    How brain detects temperature of blood
    Thermoregulatory centre in brain detects temperature of blood that flows past it through receptors

    How pancreas reacts to over supply of glucose
    Released insulin, which causes glucose to be taken up by cells and glucose to be converted to glycogen and stored in muscles

    Effect of sulfur dioxide
    Acid rain

    Uses of ventricles in heart
    Prevent back flow so blood can be pumped around body.

    Platelets:
    Small fragments of cells.

    Photosynthesis word equation
    Carbon dioxide+Water-->Glucose+Oxygen

    Why he thought it was plant D
    Lots of stomata means lots of water lost through diffusion, so biggest decrease in mass

    Parts of plant and what they transport
    Xylem- water
    Phloem- ions, glucose

    Waste products 6 marker
    Carbon dioxide from respiration released by lungs during exhalation
    Urea from amino acids in liver released by kidneys during ultrafiltration, then send to bladder as urine and excreted

    what was the question?
    Something like, which statement is true about platelets?
    - They have a nucleus
    -Can't remember this one
    -they are small fragments of cells
