1. Explain the problems that growth causes for cell
2. Describe how cell division solves the problem of cell growth
Think about the SA to V ratio to start with
Whats "SA to V ratio"?
Surface Area to Volume ratio. The larger the surface area that the cell has in relation to the volume, the more space it has to take in nutrients. This is the largest when the cell is small. So as a cell gets bigger the SA to V ratio gets smaller and less SA is avaliable for nutrients to pass into the cell.
