What effect does temperature have on the permeability of beetroot cell membrane?
Effect of Heat:
When you heat a beetroot, you disrupt the cell membranes. A biological membrane is made of a so-called phospholipid bilayer. These are formed because the phospholipids that make it up have a polar "water-loving" (hydrophyllic) head and a "water-hating" (hydrophobic) tail. The tails pack together, exposing only the polar heads to the water. The most effective way of doing this is to create two blankets one atop the other, with the fatty acid tails towards each other. This is the phospholipid bilayer.
In a cell they form sacks. One goes all around the cell (the plasma membrane), others may form vacuoles (such as the tonoplast). Yet others may be like stacks of half empty bags (the endothelial reticulum, which is also continuous with the nuclear envelope. In these lipid seas, there will be a number of proteins in various degrees of submersion. Some span all the bilayer, thus being exposed on both sides. Others just drift on either of its surfaces. Typically, you will find that about 70% of a cell membrane is protein. The water around and within the compartments formed by the phospholipid bilayers is also crammed with protein (= cytoplasm).
So what happens when you heat this? When you heat something you give it energy. Molecules start to spin and vibrate faster. The water will expand too. This will have a disruptive effect on any membrane in its way. To make things worse, lipids become more fluid as temperature goes up (think of what happens when you heat butter) so the membranes become more fragile.
Proteins are remarkable machines: they're formed of coiled and folded strings of amino-acids, held together by hydrogen bonds and disulphide bridges. If you heat them too much, they will untangle and break apart (vibrations again). When this happens to the proteins spanning a lipid membrane, they will form holes that will destroy the delicate structure. Now, any pigments in the innermost compartment will spill out.
So summing it all up; the higher the temperature the more the beetroot cell membrane will be damaged releasing more dye
What is the effect of varying alcohol concentrations on the membrane permeability of beetroot cells?
Ambien, the trade name for the drug zolpidem, binds to GABA receptors in the brain, increasing chloride permeability in neurons, increasing the cell membrane potential and making the cells less likely to depolarize. The effect of this change in firing is unconsciousness, usually within 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Yes, the refractive index of a liquid often is different at different temperatures (usually negative; e.g. It goes down as temperature goes up), although typically the effect is very nominal. However, that is not to say that there is a constant relationship between Ref index & temperature. Refractive index is proportional to the square roots of electrical permittivity and magnetic permeability. These factors may change with temperature, but not linearly, and therefore RI does not…

There is not feasible way to change the overall porosity and permeability in an oil field. However, it is possible in many cases to improve the porosity and permeability within the near wellbore region, where the change in pressure is the greatest. Injecting acid into a well, may slightlyincrease the porosity but sigmificantly improve the permeability, as it creates larger flow paths (also called worm holes) through the formation. Hydraulic fracturing will also stimulate a…
Explain why the effect of temperature on the viscosity of gases differs from the effect of temperature on the viscosity of liquids?
Permeability is dependent on a number of factors and a number of mechanisms can act to alter the permeability of a sand when water is passed through it: Fluid chemistry: Depending on the composition of the sand grains and also the water chemistry, reactions can occur that will precipitate minerals that act to reduce the permeability of the sand. Conversely, acidic waters may act to dissolve mineral grains and may lead to increased porosity and…
