What is the meaning of selecting permeable?
A feature and a function of the plasma membrane that is essentialto maintain homeostasis by regulating the passage of somesubstances while preventing others from entering the …cell.
it only allows specific things to enter.
Selective permeability refers to the function of plasma membranes that is needed to maintain homeostasis in a cell and prevent foriegn substances from entering through the… cells walls.
Permeable mean that it is full time. Semi-permeable is when it is only part of the time.
it allows some substances to pass through but blocks the passage of others.
A cell membrane is selectively permeable, often referred to as being semi-permeable because it only allows specific substances to enter the cell, and keeps others out. This …means that the cell membrane will allow certain molecules, but not others, through the cell. Small molecules can fit through the phospholipid bilayer passively (without requiring energy) and do not require any help to pass through the membrane. Other molecules (specifically large or polar ones) are not immediately permitted through the membrane and require active transport (using energy)
Selectively permeable describes a cell membrane that allows certain ions or molecules to pass through it by means of passive or active transport.
Because plasma membrane allows only certain solute to move into the cell and outside the cell
It only let's some materials pass in and out.
In biology, a selective permeable cell means the cell only allows certain molecules to pass through. This concept was first introduced to understand the process of osmosis, wh…ere solute molecules move along a concentration gradient through a semi permeable membrane (also known as a selectively permeable membrane) Cells allow water molecules and small ions to pass through their membranes without the expenditure of energy.
The property of a membrane or other material that allows some substances to pass through it more easily than others. Selective permeability refers to the control that a cell m…embrane has in terms of what it allows to cross it. This gives the cell membrane the ability to choose which molecules enter or leave.
If you break down the two words, selective means to only pick certain things, and permeable means to let pass through. When you talk about something being "selectively perme…able", it usually refers to a cell membrane because it only lets in certain nutrients and lets out proteins and what not. I hope this answers your question.
this means that cell membrane allows only selected substances to enter the cell.
It allows the passage for certain substances.
some substances can pass across them and others cannot
Selective permeability relates to the properties of a membrane. It allows the passage of some substances and not others. Theoretically, it can be thought of as a sheet with ho…les of a set size in it. Only objects that are smaller than these holes will be able to pass through the sheet. In a proper membrane the 'holes' are usually a type of protein channel that can control permeability by charge as well as size.
