dead plant cells
the smallest units of life ina ll lliving things are
when the volume of a cell increases, its surface area,
increases at a slower rate
surface area is a n important factor in limiting cell growth because?
the cell may become too large to take in enough food and to remove enough wastes.
teh size to wicha cell can grow is limited by its
cell that can change its shape would be well suited for
moving to diffferent tissues through narrow openings
