Electron transport system Membrane potential Oxidation reduction reactions Terms Flow of electrons (ions) from one region to another is driven by a difference in potential energy Voltage: difference in electrochemical potential energy between two electrodes (V) Does not depend on size of the electrodes or amount of materials. AAA, AA, A all have 1.54 V All our cells have -90mV

Current: the rate of electron flow (amps) Major electrolytes Taken as minerals (along with vitamins) Several of them are needed for proper function of enzymes (cofactors) As for your body, the major electrolytes are as follows: sodium (Na+) - depolarization potassium (K+) - repolarization chloride (Cl-) balancing the charges calcium (Ca2+) trigger muscle contraction magnesium (Mg2+) bicarbonate (HCO3-) acid/base phosphate (PO42-) - bones

sulfate (SO42-) - bones Electrolytes and Water Balance Pure water vs electrolytes cells need to be bathed in fluids inside and out. the current enables electrolytes to regulate how and where fluids are distributed throughout the body, which includes keeping water from floating freely across cell membranes. Water follows the charged ions help maintain a state of fluid balance. transport nutrients into cells and wastes out of them. The difference in electrical balance inside and outside of cells also allows: for transmission of nerve impulses,

contraction or relaxation of muscles, blood pressure control, and proper gland functioning. Sodium levels 136 and 145 milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L) of sodium Sodium plays a key role in your body. It helps maintain normal blood pressure, supports the work of your nerves and muscles, and regulates your body's fluid balance. Hyponatremia: When the sodium levels in your blood become too low, excess water enters your cells and causes them to swell. Swelling in your brain is especially dangerous because the brain is confined by your skull and unable to expand. Hypernatremia, the body contains too little water for the amount of

sodium. The sodium level in blood becomes abnormally high when water loss exceeds sodium loss, as typically occurs in dehydration, typically causes thirst. The most serious symptoms of hypernatremia result from brain dysfunction, confusion, muscle twitching, seizures, coma, and death. Water and Mineral Availability Only minerals dissolved in water in spaces among soil particles are available -Organic soil particles tend to have negative charges, and so attract positive ions -Therefore, active transport is needed to move positive ions into root hairs 8

-Nine = C, O, H, N, K, Ca, Mg, P & S -Micronutrients: Used in minute amounts -Seven = Cl, Fe, Mn, Zn, B, Cu & Mo A deficiency of any one can have severe effects on plant growth 10 Plant Nutrients 11 Responses to Mechanical Stimuli http:// plantsinmotion.bio.indiana.edu/plantmotion/movements/
