Virtual Lab 1: Virtual Microscopy
A. Estimate the size (length and width) of these microscopic objects in micrometers (microns):
1. An E. Coli cell. 3x 0.6 μm = 1.8 μm
2 A mitochondrion. 4x 0.8 μm = 3.2 μm
3. A Red blood cell. 8 μm
4. A virus. 220 nm = 0.00022 μm
5. A water molecule. 275 pm = 0.000275 μm

B.
1 Describe three differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
The three differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells are: Eukaryotic cells contain a nucleus inside their cells, while prokaryotic cells have genetic material condensed in a nucleoid region. Organelles such as mitochondria, Golgi apparatus, chloroplast, and endoplasmic reticulum are present in eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic don’t have. However, the mitochondria and chloroplasts found in eukaryotic cells have larger ribosomes as compared to the ribosomes found in prokaryotic cells.

2. Describe three differences and three similarities between plant and animal cells.
The three differences: Plant cells have cell walls present while animal cells do not. Animal cells do not have chloroplasts and plant cells have. Plant cells contain larger vacuoles while animal cells may contain smaller vacuoles.

The three similarities: Plant and animal cells have a nucleus. They both have mitochondria present. Lastly, they both have organelles.

    Plant Cells have cell walls, which makes them appear rectangular or square in shape,, plant cells have chlorophyll the light absorbing pigment required for photosynthesis. First, animal cells don't have central vacuoles or cell walls. Cell Walls are composed of cellulose, hemicellulose and other material Animal cells do not have cell walls they only have a cell membrane, this makes their shape round/fluid they have lysosones which plants do not, versus the plant cell which is more angular/rigid. Plant cells have chloroplasts to convert light into energy, animals do not. Animal cells contain centriole, lysosome, and flagellum, where as most plant cells do not. Both contain DNA unique to their species or type of plant.…

    There are two different types of cells, there are prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Within eukaryotes there are different structures and similar structures. For example; in a plant cell they have a nucleus, mitochondria an ER, and a Golgi body. These are the same as animal cells; however they differ because plants cells have a cellulose cell wall, chloroplasts, large central vacuole and they use starch for storage whereas an animal cell has lysosomes, rough ER, smooth ER and ribosomes. Eukaryotes differ from prokaryotes because prokaryotes have no nucleus, they just have a loop of DNA and they also have no membrane-bound organelles. Prokaryotes also have a cell wall, along with a slime capsule, flagellae and plasmids.…
