Question Answer
Spontaneous GenerationThe hypothetical process by which living organisms develop from nonliving matter
Spontaneous Generation also, the archaic (primitive) theory that utilized this process to explain the or origin of life.
Cell Theory (3)(1.) All living things are made of cells, (2.) Cells come from other cells, (3.) Cells are the smallest unit of life.
Robert HookeFirst to View Cells
Robert HookeIn 1665, he used a microscope to examine a thin slice of cork (dead plant cell walls)
Robert HookeWhat he saw looked like small boxes
Robert Hookeis responsible for naming cells
They looked like the small rooms that monks lived in called CellsHooke called them CELLS because
Anton van Leeuwenhoeka Dutch microscope maker
Anton van LeeuwenhoekIn 1676, he was first to view organism (living things)
Anton van Leeuwenhoek used a simple, handheld microscope to view pond water & scrapings from his teeth
Anton van Leeuwenhoekanimalcules
19th Century AdvancementMuch doubt existed around Spontaneous Generation
19th Century AdvancementConclusively disproved by Louis Pasteur

Louis PasteurSwan neck flask
Louis PasteurNutrient broth
Swan neck flaskmeans to control environment
Nutrient brothis the liquid form of agar
Matthias SchleidenIn 1838, he concluded that all plants were made of cells
Theodore SchwannIn 1839, he concluded that all animals were made of cells
Theodore Schwann & Matthias Schleidenfounded the cell theory
Modern Cell Theory(1) All the different parts of plants and animals are MADE UP OF CELLS, (2) ALL LIVING CELLS IS COMPOSED OF 1 OR MORE CELLS
Rudolph Virchowobserved, under the microscope, cells dividing
Rudolph VirchowHe reasoned that all cells come from other preexisting cells by cell division
Rudolph VirchowPlagiarize Robert Remak


Question Answer
CellsAll organisms are composed of cells
Light microscopeuses visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of small samples.
Light microscopeare the oldest design of microscope and were invented in the 17th century.
Light microscopeCan be monocular or binocular.
Scanning Electron Microscopeallows scientists to view a universe too small to be seen with a light microscope.
Scanning Electron Microscopedo not use light waves; they use electrons (negatively charged electrical particles) to magnify
Scanning Electron Microscope creates a 3D view of specimen, but cannot view living specimens (process kills them)
Transmission Electron Microscopealso uses electrons, but instead of scanning the surface electrons are passed through very thin specimens.
5 Microscope Care(1) Always carry with 2 hands, one hand on the arm, one on the base, (2) Only use lens paper for cleaning, (3) Do not force knobs, (4) Always store covered, (5) Keep objects clear of desk and cords
Scanning Objective LensMagnification = 4x
Low Power Objective LensMagnification = 10x
High Power Power Objective LensMagnification = 40x
Cytological TechniqueUse dye / stain to directly observe living cells
Cytological TechniqueStains were taken up by living cells without killing them and selectively stain intracellular structure without affecting cellular metabolism

Question Answer
Bacterial cell wallPeptidoglycan or Murein which consists of a carbohydrate matrix (polymers of sugars) that is cross-linked by short polypeptide units
Bacterial cell wallgives the cell shape, protect the cell, maintain its shape, and prevent excessive uptake of water.

small &large subunitRibosome Structure has two sub-units which are_____________
Small subunitSubunit that reads the mRNA
Large subunitjoins the amino acids to form a chain of polypeptides.


Volume increases FASTER than the surface area
Therefore, the cells of an organism are close in size
Cells need a large surface area of plasma membrane to adequately exchange materials.
The surface-area-to-volume ratio requires that cells be small
Surface area (plasma membrane surface) : is determined by multiplying length times width (L x W)
Volume of a cell is determined by multiplying length times width times height (L x W x H)
