a cell requires water mineral and other nutrients to survive. it is covered with a membrane how do these things reach inside the cell

Dear Student,

Please find below the solution to the asked query:

Minerals and nutrients are able to reach inside the cells because the cell membranes are semi- permeable and allow certain substances to pass through it. For the substances that cannot pass through the membranes directly, specific carrier and channel proteins exist that aid in the transportation.

Hope this information will clear your doubts.

A cell requires water, mineral and other nutrients to survive. These things enter in the cell through a membrane. Cell membrane is present in both animal and plant. It is semi-permiable or selectively permiable. It is made up of lipoproteins (lipids and proteins). Cell wall is only present in plant cell. It is freely permiable.
