Defien “Sodium-Potassium Pump?

The membranes of nerve cells have carrier proteins in the form of sodium-potassium pump. In resting nerve cell this pump spends energy to maintain higher concentrations of K+ and lower concentration of Na+ inside the cell. For this purpose the pump actively moves Na+ to the outside of the cell where they are already in higher concentration. Similarly, this pumps moves K+ from outside to inside the cell where they are in higher concentration.

When a transport protein moves a substance ffrom higher to lower concentration, the process is called facilitated diffusion. Facilitated diffusion is a passive diffusion because there is no expenditure of energy in this process. The rate of facilitated diffusion is higher than simple diffusion.
Why cell membrane is called semi permeable membrane?

The cell membrane functions as a semi-permeable barrier, allowing a very few molecules across it while fencing the majority of chemicals inside the cell. In this way wthe cell membrane maintains the internal composition of the cell.

Xylem tissue is responsible for transport of water, while phloem tissue transport food in plants body.
Why endoplasmic reticulum is called rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum?

Rough endoplasmic reticulum is so-named because of its rough appearance due to the numerous ribosomes that are attached to it.
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (SER): lacks ribosomes and have smooth surface.
What si the fifference between primary cell wall and secondary cell wall?

Primary wall: The outer laer of the plant cell wall is known as primary wall and cellulose is the most common chemical in it.
Secondary wall: Some plant cells such as xylem cells also have secondary walls on the inner side of the primary wall. It is much thicker and contains lignin and other chemicals.
Differentiate between Transmission Electron Microscope and Scanning Electron Microscope?

Transmission Electron Microscope: TEM is used to study the details of the internal cell structure. In TEM electrons are transmitted through the specimen.
Scanning Electron Microscope SEM:  In SEM electrons are reflected from the metal-coated surfaces. SEM is used to study the structure of cell surfaces.
