Why doesn't the membranenof an egg get dissolved when soaked in vinegar?

Because when it is soaked in vinegar,the shell is making direct contact with the vinegar;the shell is made from carbonate and will be dissolved by the acid in the vinegar, whereas, the membrane is protein so it takes a lot longer to be affected by the vinegar. The reaction is different so the membrane appears not to be affected.

Does the bacteria cell contain a nucleus?

bacteria do not contain a nucleus. they have their genetic material in contact with the cellular component. there is no nuclear membrane to enclose their nuclear material into a nucleus.they are devoid of compartmentalization i.e they do not have membrane bound oraganelles and as nucleus is a membrane bound organelle so it is absent. though their genetic material is still present but in contact with cytoplasm

Why is a plasma membrane important to a cell?

1). Mucus membrane to mucus membrane contact. 2). Aerial contact of water droplets containing bacteria from a cough or sneeze, or exhale. 3).
