2.2 Osmosis

We are learning how to: • explain why water molecules move between regions of different concentration during osmosis

2.2

2. Cut the outside of each half to make a flat surface for it to stand on. sugar distilled water

Osmosis Osmosis is a special kind of diffusion that is concerned only with the movement of water molecules. Like other substances, water diffuses down a concentration gradient from a place where water is in high concentration to a place where it is in low concentration.

3. Stand the two halves of the fruit on their flat parts in a shallow bowl of distilled water so that the well is at the top. In one of the wells, just cover the bottom with a layer of sugar but do not fill the well.

partially or selectively permeable membrane

4. Do not put any sugar in the well of the other half of the fruit.

This can sometimes be a little confusing, because water is in a higher concentration in a dilute solution and in a lower concentration in a concentrated solution. What we are saying, therefore, is that under suitable conditions, water will move from a dilute solution to a concentrated solution.

5. Leave the halves of fruit in the water for 30 minutes. 6. After 30 minutes, record your observations. 7. Explain your observations in terms of osmosis. water molecules

A partially or selectively permeable membrane is a membrane with holes that are large enough to allow small molecules like water to pass through, but small enough to prevent the movement of large molecules. Fig 2.2.1 shows what happens if we separate pure water from a solution of a compound by a differentially permeable membrane. Notice that the water molecules move in both directions through the differentially permeable membrane. However, to start with more water molecules pass from the dilute solution to the concentrated solution than pass in the other direction. Eventually the concentration of the solution reaches an equilibrium situation and equal numbers of water molecules pass in each direction.

In Activity 2.2.1 the sugar dissolves in one half of the fruit, forming a sugar solution. The concentration of water in the dish is greater than the concentration of water in the sugar solution, so water passes from the dish into the fruit, through the fruit cells, by osmosis.

partially or selectively permeable membrane

Water passes into and out of all living cells by osmosis. The process of osmosis controls the concentration of substances in the cell.

Here is what you need: • Fresh fruit – mango or paw-paw •

Knife

Shallow dish

Sugar.

1. Peel the fruit with a knife and cut it in half. If you are using a mango or a paw-paw, remove the seeds to make a well.

osmosis the movement of water from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration passing through a partially or selectively permeable membrane partially or selectively permeable membrane a membrane that allows some particles to pass through it but not others equilibrium a situation in which the movement of particles in one direction is equal to the movement of particles in the opposite direction

Check your understanding 1. Visking tubing is a partially or selectively permeable membrane. Fig 2.2.3 shows a bag made of Visking tubing, filled with 20% sugar solution and then suspended in a beaker of distilled water.

The value and relevance of history

We are learning to:

The value and relevance of history

• define and use correctly the terms past, present, future, decade, century, generation • describe the value and relevance of history to myself and my country.

We need to know what we can learn from the past and what we need to cherish from the past. We need to know what is special about our nation and ourselves. Here are some ideas about why history is valuable in our lives: •

Why is history important to me?

History is the study of the past. Most of us are so involved with our modern world that we forget to stop and think about the past. Yet, how can we really understand who we are if we do not value our past?

Our understanding of history helps us to understand the present, and to understand and find answers for problems that we may face in the present.

History helps us to understand who we are. It is part of our identity or collective memory. History encourages us to express our own points of view on matters of personal, family and national concern. History is interesting and helps to explain why things have happened: for example, why there are so many people of African, East Indian and Chinese ancestry in the Caribbean. History teaches us that we need to respect our cultural heritage. History teaches us to reflect on events and lives. Why, for example, was Eric Williams respected as leader of Trinidad and Tobago? History teaches us to look at both sides of a problem – there are always two sides to a story. This is a useful skill to apply when we face practical problems in our everyday lives.

Past, present and future When we talk about history, we are really talking about time – the past, the present and the future. When we talk about the past we are talking about the history of a person or a place, or events that happened before the present time. The present is what is happening now and the future is what might or will happen in a time that is still to come. A century is a period of 100 years. We are currently living in the 21st century. A decade is a period of 10 years. So, for example, the year 2000 was the first year of the first decade of the 21st century. The year 2010 was the first year of the second decade, and so on.

Workers harvesting cocoa beans on a cacao plantation in Grenada, 1934.

Research

Work in groups or as a class. With your teacher, discuss the value and relevance of history, and why history is important in your lives today.

Make a timeline of important dates in the history of your country. Here are examples from Saint Kitts and Nevis: •

1493 Christopher Columbus spotted Saint Kitts and Nevis. 1538 The first French settlers arrived on Saint Kitts. 1623 The first English settlers arrived on the island. 1783 British rule was finally established with the Treaty of Versailles. • 1834 Slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire. • 2005 The sugar industry closed down. When you have done your timeline, discuss the value and relevance of these events in your own life today. • • •

Exercise 1. In which century did each of these events occur? a) 1979 Saint Lucia gains independence. b) 1780 The Great Hurricane becomes the deadliest hurricane on record. c) 1980 Dame Eugenia Charles is elected Prime Minister of Dominica, the first woman to hold the office in the Caribbean. 2. In your own words define: ‘past’, ‘present’, ‘future’, ‘century’, ‘decade’ and ‘generation’.

Example 2 When a purple potassium manganate(VII) crystal is placed in water, it dissolves to produce a uniformly purple solution. The particles making up the crystal separate from each other and diffuse through the spaces between the water particles until they are evenly distributed.

Chemistry is the study of the composition, structure, properties and reactions of matter. Everything around us is made of matter. Matter is anything that has volume and mass.

purple potassium manganate(VII) solution gradually forms

All matter is made of particles and can exist in three different states: • The solid state

1 water particles move randomly and have small spaces between

• The liquid state • The gaseous state

The particulate theory of matter

3 crystal particles gradually separate from each other and diffuse into the spaces between the water particles

water

There are four main ideas behind the particulate theory of matter:

2 crystal particles packed tightly together

potassium manganate(VII) crystal

• All matter is composed of particles.

before dissolving

• The particles are in constant motion and temperature affects their speed of motion. • The particles have empty spaces between them.

4 the crystal gradually decreases in size during dissolving

Figure 1.2 Crystals dissolve

• The particles have forces of attraction between them.

Osmosis

Evidence to support the particulate theory of matter The processes of diffusion and osmosis provide evidence to support the fact that all matter is made of particles.

Osmosis is the movement of water molecules through a differentially permeable membrane from a solution containing a lot of water molecules, e.g. a dilute solution (or water), to a solution containing fewer water molecules, e.g. a concentrated solution.

Diffusion

Example 1

Diffusion is the net movement of particles from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration, until the particles are evenly distributed.

When a dilute sucrose solution is separated from a concentrated sucrose solution by a differentially permeable membrane, water molecules move through the membrane from the dilute solution into the concentrated solution, but the sucrose molecules cannot move in the other direction. The volume of the concentrated solution increases and the volume of the dilute solution decreases.

Particles in gases and liquids are capable of diffusing.

Example 1 When pieces of cotton wool soaked in concentrated ammonia solution and concentrated hydrochloric acid are placed simultaneously at opposite ends of a glass tube, a white ring of ammonium chloride forms inside the tube. Ammonia solution gives off ammonia gas and hydrochloric acid gives off hydrogen chloride gas. The particles of the gases diffuse through the air inside the tube, collide and react to form ammonium chloride: ammonia + hydrogen chloride NH3(g) + HCl(g)

glass tube 3 the level of the concentrated solution rises due to its increased volume

ammonium chloride NH4Cl(s)

differentially permeable membrane – has minute pores which only allow water particles through

Ammonia particles diffuse faster than hydrogen chloride particles, so the particles collide and react closer to the source of the hydrogen chloride particles. 1 ammonia particles diffuse very quickly along the tube

2 hydrogen chloride particles diffuse quickly along the tube

Digestive juice

Source

Main components

Functions of the components

Absorption occurs by both diffusion and active transport (see pages 37 and 39). The ileum is adapted to absorb food as efficiently as possible:

Small intestine (duodenum and ileum)

Bile

Cells in the liver. It is stored in the gall bladder and enters the duodenum via the bile duct.

• Bile pigments, e.g. bilirubin

• Excretory products from the breakdown of haemoglobin in the liver. Have no function in digestion.

• It is very long, about 5 m in an adult. This provides a large surface area for rapid absorption.

• Organic bile salts

• Emulsify lipids, i.e. break large lipid droplets into smaller droplets increasing their surface area for digestion.

Pancreatic Cells in the juice pancreas. It enters the duodenum via the pancreatic duct.

• Pancreatic amylase*

• Continues to digest: starch maltose

Intestinal juice

Cells in the walls of the small intestine.

• Its inner surface has thousands of finger-like projections known as villi (singular villus). These greatly increase the surface area for absorption.

• Trypsin*

• Continues to digest: protein peptides

• Pancreatic lipase*

• Digests: lipids

• Maltase*

• Digests: maltose

glucose

• Sucrase*

• Digests: sucrose

glucose and fructose

• Lactase*

• Digests: lactose

glucose and galactose

• Peptidase* (erepsin)

• Digests: peptides

• Each villus has a network of blood capillaries and a lacteal inside. These provide means of rapidly transporting the products of digestion away from the ileum. • The wall of each villus, known as the epithelium, is only one cell thick. Digested food can pass rapidly through this epithelium into the capillaries and lacteal. • The epithelial cells have tiny projections called microvilli. These further increase the surface area for absorption. epithelium – wall of the villus, one cell thick microvilli

fatty acids and glycerol

blood capillaries – absorb water-soluble substances, i.e. amino acids, monosaccharides, minerals, vitamins B and C, some water

goblet cell – secretes mucus

epithelial cell

lacteal – absorbs fatty substances, i.e. fatty acids, glycerol, vitamins A and D

amino acids

* digestive enzymes venule to the hepatic portal vein – takes water-soluble substances to the liver

arteriole from the mesenteric artery

Movement of food through the alimentary canal Food is moved through the oesophagus and the rest of the alimentary canal by a process known as peristalsis.

lymphatic vessel – takes fatty substances to the blood before it enters the heart

circular muscles – in the walls of the oesophagus and intestines

Figure 7.8 Structure of a villus showing absorption

circular muscles contract behind the bolus, squeezing it along

Absorption in the colon

bolus of food

Any food that is not digested in the small intestine passes into the colon where water and mineral salts are absorbed from it. As this undigested waste moves along the colon to the rectum it becomes progressively more solid as the water is absorbed.

circular muscles relax around and in front of the bolus

Figure 7.7 The mechanism of peristalsis

Egestion

Absorption

The almost solid material entering the rectum is called faeces and consists of undigested dietary fibre, dead bacteria and intestinal cells, mucus and bile pigments. Faeces is stored in the rectum and egested at intervals through the anus when the anal sphincter relaxes.

Absorption of the products of digestion into body fluids occurs in the small intestine and colon.

Absorption in the small intestine The products of digestion are absorbed through the lining of the small intestine, mainly the ileum, and into the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels in its walls. Substances absorbed include monosaccharides, amino acids, fatty acids, glycerol, vitamins, minerals and water.

3.3 Effective speech and dialogue in stories

Establishing character through dialogue Dialogue should be included for a reason: to tell us more about characters or to advance the story’s plot.

2

Learn how to:

Look again at the dialogue on page 2.

a) What did we learn about the story? (What had happened?)

• Punctuate speech accurately

b) What did we learn about Ray and his daughter? (How do they feel?)

• Use dialogue to create mood, reveal character or advance the plot

Look at this further example which continues from the story about the girl on the motorbike in Unit 2:

It is important that you use set out speech correctly but equally important that dialogue is included for a reason.

‘Hey Deon. Where yuh been hidin’?’ [1]

Correct use of speech in stories

Deon looked up, and his mouth fell open in surprise. [2]

Look at this example of dialogue from a story based on the picture on page 2.

‘Yuh lost your voice? Seen a ghost? Well, maybe that’s right, cos I’m back from the dead.’

‘Shana....we....I.....,’ [3] he stammered [4], beads of sweat breaking out on his brow. [5]

Ray looked across the room at his daughter. She held a bunch of flowers in her hand but her face was streaked with tears.

[1] Question tells us she’s been looking for him.

[2] ‘I... I wanted to surprise you,[1]’[2] he said, standing on the edge of the dance-floor.

[2] Description between the spoken lines adds to the action and mood – Deon is shocked.

[3] ‘Surprise me? [1]’ his daughter replied, her voice trembling. [4] ‘Are you trying to be funny?’

[3] Incomplete fragments convey Deon’s fear.

Ray took a step into the room.

[4] Verb tells us precisely how he speaks

‘DON’T come near me!’ [5]

[5] Additional description confirms what we know: he is scared.

3

[1] punctuation related to what is being said goes inside the speech marks

b) about Shana’s status in the conversation?

[3] start a new line for each ‘new’ speaker [4] stay on same line if same speaker speaks again

Key term

[5] there’s no need to always say who is speaking if it is obvious

1

What does the final line of speech suggest or tell us

a) about what may or may not have happened?

[2] speech marks go around the spoken words

Correct the next part of the same conversation. Use the rules above to help you. Ray hesitated, clutching the small gift in his hands. He felt ridiculous. I guess you don’t want my present then? he asked. The only thing I want from you is for you to leave Linda said, wiping away her tears. You think one present can make up for all those missing years? Ray put the present down on a nearby table. Of course not. I’m sorry I spoiled your big day. He paused for a moment, then turned and walked out.

Now read the next two lines of dialogue from the same story. Can you see what is wrong with them?

Write a dialogue that might occur in the following story.

11 • before the child disappears (between mother and child) • later, when the child goes missing (between the mother and a local person, or the child and other adults).

Rewrite the dialogue. • remove unnecessary words or phrases, for example shortening Shana’s speech so it is more forceful

xxxxx_CSEC_English_P010_P013.indd 10-11

A mother and her five-year-old child have gone shopping in the big city. However, the child wanders off, and the mother cannot find her. You can choose to write dialogue from any stage of the story – for example:

• add detail or description between the two chunks of speech, for example describing what Shana does and how Deon reacts.

Dialect and accent

14/07/16 1:46 PM

Once you have drafted your ideas, use the checklist below to ensure that the speech is set out accurately and also advances plot and characterisation.

Remember Feature

Yes

No

Speech marks around spoken words Key terms

New line each time a new person speaks

Dialect: refers to the different vocabulary and grammar used in particular places or by specific groups. For example TBC

Punctuation related to what is said inside speech marks

Accent: refers to pronunciation (‘Yuh’ rather than ‘You’ (pronounced ‘yoo’))

5

Generally, it’s better to hint at dialect and accent rather than write in a way that is only understood by you and your friends! For example, how has this been achieved here?

The grey-haired man in the smart suit stepped gingerly off the boat. He approached one of the fishermen.

No need to say who is speaking if it is obvious Descriptive details – for example, what people are doing or how words are spoken – embedded in the text. What is said tells us about character of speaker What is said moves the story forward Accent or dialect, if used, add characterisation (but not too exaggerated) Punctuation is used to convey drama or mood in the dialogue more generally

‘Ah, my good man. Would you be so kind as to tell me the way to the hotel?’ The fisherman’s face creased into a smile. ‘Hotel? Hotel? Why, friend, there ain’t no hotel here. Yuh gotta get right back on tha’ boat. Is a hundred miles north...’

Check your progress Competent

6

Write another line of dialogue for each of the two speakers above, trying to retain the same accent and dialect for each.

✔ I can generally set out speech clearly and correctly. ✔ I can use dialogue to tell the reader something about the story.

Superior ✔ I set out speech correctly and appropriately to the story. ✔ I use dialogue for a range of functions: advancing the plot, revealing character, establishing mood.

Examination tEchniquEs you in your preparation for the exam.

Chapter 3 Objectives By the end of this chapter, you should be able to: • recognise cue words in multiple-choice questions (MCQs); • use strategies to eliminate incorrect responses in MCQs; • identify key terms and concepts in questions that will need to be discussed when writing your essays; • identify the topic and the command or directive words in each essay question; • organise and communicate ideas clearly and logically; • present written evidence to illustrate a range of phenomena that relate to the Caribbean; • use words and phrases that link your ideas and provide for transition from one paragraph to the next.

Examination Techniques Introduction The purpose of this chapter is to provide you with general tips and strategies for taking Papers 1 and 2. It also provides advice on approaching Paper 03/2. It will give you the skills needed to approach the examinations successfully by describing how to answer the multiplechoice questions (MCQs) effectively and how to write answers to essay questions. Paper 1 is a multiple-choice paper with 45 questions spanning the three modules. The aim is to test your knowledge and understanding of the main concepts and issues across the syllabus. Paper 2 comprises four sections with Sections A and C testing Module 1 and Sections B and D testing Module 2. You are required to answer four questions, one from each section.

Overview of the Examination Writing in an examination is very demanding; you have studied and you believe that you can give your best in the examination room. To ensure that you achieve success, and score at least a passing grade, the following recommendations will help you. Figure 3.1 provides various tips to help Figure 3.1 Before the examination – preparation tips

Additional Reading To prepare adequately for the CAPE® Caribbean Studies examination, you must be well-read. To achieve this: • ensure that you use this comprehensive revision guide; • cover the recommended readings outlined in the syllabus; • read from multiple sources so that you have different perspectives on a topic; • access past papers that you can use to practise; • practise paraphrasing key ideas so that you enhance your writing skills and expression.

61

Did You Know? Making the Connection Throughout this revision guide, ‘Making the Connection’ boxes can be found. These are important in assisting you to see the interconnectedness of topics in the chapters. When you see these pointers, make sure you cross reference and see how the topics interrelate.

Paper 1 – Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQs) Here are some tips to consider when answering MCQs: • Read the question in its entirety before you look at the responses. • Read the question more than once to understand what the test item is asking. • Read every response before choosing your answer. • Highlight important words in the questions and in the responses provided; remember to underline the key terms. • If, after reading the question, you are unable to identify the correct response, apply the process of elimination: • Eliminate distractors/options you know are incorrect. • Apply the True and False technique to the responses to help narrow down your final choice. • Look closely at responses that do not fit with the grammatical structure of the stem; they tend to be incorrect. • Look for clues in both the phrasing of the questions and in the response options provided. • When a question appears to have more than one response that seems to be correct, ask yourself if the response you think is right completely addresses the question. • Remember that if the response to a question is only partially true, then the likelihood that it is incorrect is very high. • Look out for questions where all the responses appear to be correct. These take more time to eliminate the incorrect responses. (See the next section for more information on dealing with this type of question.)

24

Hurricanes affecting the Caribbean originate over the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean or Caribbean Sea. They rotate anticlockwise and always try to move north, but are often forced to travel west or northwest before they can turn. The tracks on the map below show how they do this. Their wind strength declines rapidly once they reach land, but they may still be very wet and cause extensive flooding.

Caribbean Hurricane Network http://stormcarib.com/ National Hurricane Center www.nhc.noaa.gov/

In the eye of the storm, winds are light and the sky is clear with little rain Closer to the centre, wind speeds increase to over 100 km/hr, and there may be torrential rain (more than 200 mm/day)
