The following video explores the functions of the organelles within the cell. It will also describe the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. 


Osmosis is the diffusion of fluids through a porous, selectively permeable membrane. In this animated video, osmosis demostrates how fluids travel through a permeable membrane and causing  isotonic, hypotonic and/or hyertonic state. 

A diffusion is a process when passive movement of molecules move along a concentration gradient. Usually from a high concentration to a lower concentration until evenly distributed. The video shows the difference between how diffusion occurs in hot and cold water. 

The term pH (power of hydrogen) can be defined as a measurement unit by which acids and bases concentration are measured accordingly to 0 to 14 scale. The pH scale from 0 to 6 are consider acidity. Water is consider to be a neutral with a pH 7. The pH scale from 8 to 14 consider basicity. In the following video explains how pH with an increase of hydrogen causes aciditic solutions and lower concentrations creates basicity solutions. 

The circulatory system is soley responsible for the transporting  blood, nutrients, oxygens and many more throughout the body. The circulatory system help aid in fighting diseases and maintaining homeostasis.  The video below focusing on blood typing. Karl Landsteiner discovered blood typing in 1902, which is consider a great medical discovery of our time. The video will focus on eight main types of blood and what fuctions they peformed such as specific antigens and antibodies. Furthermore what blood type/plasma can specifically can donate and receive. 


One of the five sensory organ is the eye. The video below describes the anatomy structure of the eye. 

The ear is consider a sense organ that enables us to have two main functions. The ears assist with our balance and provides us the sounds to hear our surroundings. The overview of this video focuses on the anatomy portion and help understand its function. 


Cells is the basic building block in living organisms. In the living organisms, we have many different types of cells such as nerve, muscles, immune, gland, red blood and so forth. The cells have their own shape that makes them unique. The pictorial figure of an animal cell below shows the organelles that help the cell function as one unit.
