anonymous one year ago What is the function of the cell membrane?

1. anonymous

What is your understanding of the cell membrane?

2. anonymous

?

3. anonymous

Refer to my "Plant and Animal Cells Tutorial" for your answer ;)

5. anonymous

do you know what the answer is?

6. anonymous

Yes.

7. anonymous

can you tell me please? i really need to finish fast .. thx

12. anonymous

@elxation Please don't give the DA.

13. anonymous

ok fine :)

14. anonymous

doesnt it like protect the cell

15. anonymous

@geny, do you know where the cell membrane is located? In order to understand the function, we can first start by getting other information, such as it's location, to help.

16. anonymous

i think its the outer wall of the cell

17. anonymous

is it the cell membrane? @Aureyliant

18. anonymous

what do you think geny55?

19. anonymous

20. anonymous

it says exactly what needs to be known`

21. anonymous

22. anonymous

just take the time to find it @geny55

23. anonymous

You should learn.. not seek out the answer.

24. anonymous

@Aureyliant i think i know it

25. anonymous

Finding the answer on your own will help in the long run, especially if you have to write an essay or take a test on it one day.

26. anonymous

@Aureyliant The basic function of the cell membrane is to protect the cell from its surroundings.

27. anonymous

yup u got it

28. anonymous

thanks

29. anonymous

no geny thats not the answer

30. anonymous

the cell membrane controls what flows in and out of the cell...the cell wall is what supports and protects the cell of all material that is unwanted

31. anonymous

so the answers is........... The function of the cell membrane controls what flows in and out of the cell. The cell wall is what supports and protects the cell of all material that is unwanted. @Aureyliant is that correct?

32. anonymous

@geny55 i dont think @Aureyliant is as smart as he is...dont mean any direspect but i already told you the answer so you wouldnt have to view the tutorial

33. anonymous

The cell membrane, also called the plasma membrane, surrounds the cell. The membrane serves as a selective barrier for the cell, meaning that it allows some things to pass into or out of the cell but not others. For example, oxygen and nutrients pass into the cell through the membrane, and waste products pass out of the cell. Each organelle inside a eukaryotic cell is also surrounded by a membrane. These membranes serve as a selective barrier for the organelles and determine what can enter or leave. Each of these membranes, like the cell membrane, is made up of lipids and contains a variety of proteins.

34. anonymous

yes that is correct...you copier and paster

35. anonymous

Dont insult me because I not only give him the answer but i explain the reasoning to help him understand the material and hopefully he will learn from that instead of reading a big article where the answer is only 2 sentences in it and try to use your own words next time :)

36. anonymous

@Aureyliant ^

37. anonymous

This isn't a conversation. This is a question. Reported.

38. anonymous

I answered his question and thanks for reporting lol just trying to help @geny55 in the fastest way possible
