Chapter 2 Cell Structure and Cell Organisation

2.1 Cell Structure and Function

Cellular components of animal and plant cells

Components of a cell
1. The cellular components of a cell as seen through an electron
microscope are:
(a) plasma membrane (both animal and plant cells) and cell wall (in
plant cell only)
(b) cytoplasm
(c) organelles
2. Organelles are specialised structures which are each surrounded by its
own membrane and perform specific functions.

Cellular Structure Function
