1 Cell Size From Smallest to l a rgest + Prokaryotic Cells

2 Size Comparison

3 Kind of CellSize (approximate) Bacteria(E. coli) 1 um Red Blood Cell 8 um Elodea epidermal cell 65 um Amoeba 700 um Hen's egg 50,000 um

4 Smallest Cells Mycoplasmas bacteria µm

5 Largest Cells *Ostrich Egg Chicken Egg

6 Metrics 1 cm = 0.01 m (10 -2 )m centimeter 1 mm = m (10 -3 )m millimeter 1 µm = m (10 -6 )m micrometer 1 nm = m (10 -9 )m nanometer 1 Å = m ( ) Angstrom

7 Longest Cells Muscle and Nerve Cells

8 Form and Function Nerve Long to send impulses

9 Form and Function Muscle Move bones

10 Form and Function Blood Cells Smooth, travel through blood vessels

11 Form and Function Skin Cell Flat top for protection Cube for cushion

12 As cells get larger, the surface area to volume ratio ______________________ (increases/decreases). decreases

13 Prokaryotic Cells
