What are the seven life processes?

The seven life processes are movement, respiration, sensitivity, growth, reproduction, excretion, and nutrition.

Define the process of movement in living organisms.

Movement is the ability of an organism or its part to change its position or place.

Explain the process of respiration in living organisms.

Respiration is the process of taking in oxygen from the environment and releasing carbon dioxide as a waste product.

What is sensitivity and why is it important for living organisms?

Sensitivity is the ability of an organism to detect and respond to changes in its environment. It is important for survival and adaptation.

Describe the process of growth in living organisms.

Growth is the permanent increase in size and dry mass of an organism over time.

Explain the process of reproduction in living organisms.

Reproduction is the biological process by which new individuals of the same kind are produced, either sexually or asexually.

Define excretion and its significance in living organisms.

Excretion is the process of removing waste products from the body. It helps maintain homeostasis and get rid of harmful substances.

What is nutrition and why is it important for living organisms?

Nutrition is the process of obtaining and using food to provide energy and materials for growth, repair, and maintenance. It is essential for the survival and functioning of organisms.

Give examples of autotrophs and heterotrophs.

Autotrophs are organisms that can produce their own food through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis, such as plants and some bacteria. Heterotrophs are organisms that obtain food by consuming other organisms, like animals and fungi.

What are the components of the human respiratory system?

The human respiratory system consists of the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, lungs, and diaphragm.

Explain the process of photosynthesis.

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants and some other organisms convert light energy into chemical energy, producing glucose and releasing oxygen as a byproduct.

What is the purpose of the circulatory system?

The circulatory system transports oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and waste products throughout the body, maintaining homeostasis and supporting the functions of other organs.

Describe the process of digestion in the human body.

Digestion is the breakdown of food into simpler substances that can be absorbed and used by the body. It involves mechanical and chemical processes in the digestive system.

What is the role of enzymes in biological processes?

Enzymes are biological catalysts that speed up chemical reactions in living organisms. They lower the activation energy required for reactions to occur.

Explain the concept of homeostasis.

Homeostasis is the maintenance of a stable internal environment within an organism, despite changes in the external environment, through various physiological processes.
