The Effect Of Temperature On Beet Cells

197 Words1 Page
The importance of the experiment is to determine the effects temperature has on beet cell membranes, and to understand why certain cells are best suited for certain environments or in this case certain temperatures. Cell membranes play a vital role in selectively allowing substances such as proteins, nutrients, and other chemicals into and out of the cell. The cell membrane is also a line of defense against harmful chemicals and other agents that try to enter the cell. We hypothesize that increasing the temperature will increase the fluidity of the membrane thus making it less permeable. When the temperature of the cell increases it will cause the phospholipids that make up the plasma membrane to move apart from one another and become more
