Methyl Bromide Uv Radiation
627 wordsOzone is a form of oxygen that is a human-made pollutant in the troposphere but a naturally produced, essential component in the stratosphere, which encircles our planet some 6 to 28 miles above the surface. The stratosphere contains a layer of ozone that shields the surface from much of the ultraviolet radiation coming from the sun. If ozone was to disappear from the stratosphere Earth would be uninhabitable for most organisms. The primary cause for this substantial ozone loss is a group of com...

E T C Plasma Membrane
448 wordsThe way in which a membrane is assembled decides what is allowed in and out of a cell and how it advances through the cell membrane. Certain molecules can simply pass through the cell membrane through diffusion. Diffusion is a type of passive transport meaning no energy is used for the substance to enter or leave the cell. Another way for molecules to enter the cell is through facilitated diffusion. When a molecule is simply to large to diffuse through the cell membrane it can enter the cell thr...
