VR Tour For Std. 9 Ch. 5. The Fundamental Unit of Life
What's Included in Virtual tour of this chapter
The whole body of animals and plants is made up of different tissues. The tissue is made up of small building blocks that are the cells. The fundamental organizational unit of life is the cell. The cell is made up of three main parts: cell membrane, nucleus, and cytoplasm. We will also understand the structure of a plant cell and the various organelles and learned about their functions. Lastly, we will also learn about the cells in the human body. Humans have millions of cells, such as red blood cells, cells that make up muscles, and cells that form nerves. Their shapes vary according to the functions they perform.
Virtual tour 1: Basic structure of Animal cell
The cell is made up of three main parts: cell membrane, nucleus, and cytoplasm. Many organelles are present in the cytoplasm. All organelles have their own functions. Like, Protection, protein synthesis, permeability, genetic information, packaging, transportation, energy production, and cleaning of the cell.
Virtual tour 2: Basic structure of Plant cell
A typical plant cell is somewhat rectangular in shape. The Cell wall is primarily made up of cellulose. Inner to the cell wall is a cell membrane. Inside the cell membrane is present a thick transparent jelly-like substance known as cytoplasm. Inside the cytoplasm, there is the nucleus. The nucleus also contains thread-like structures called chromosomes.
Virtual tour 3: Different cells of Human body
A human body possesses more than 200 different types of cells. There are various cells of which few are blood cells, smooth muscle cells, and Nerve cells found in humans. Blood cells are of three types: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The smooth muscle cells are involuntary muscles and are controlled by the brain while Nerve cells carry nerve impulses and transfer messages.
