Transcript of Level of Organization in The Respiratory System

Levels of Organization in a Human's Respiratory System
Organism-The Human Body
An organism is when all the parts come together to form a new whole object. The new creation is greater then the parts. In this image the human body is the organism, where all 11 systems together to complete a complex whole.
Organ System-Respiratory
An organ system is a group of organs that work together to perform a specific function. In this picture, you can see the organs that make up the respiratory system. Their are 5 main organs that make up this system.
Tissue-Columnar Epithelium
Organelle-Cell Membrane
An organ is a group of tissues that work together to perform a closely related function. The trachea's tissues come together to move the air to and from the lungs.
A tissue is a group of similar cells that perform a particular function. The trench is lined with columnar epithelium, witch is used for protecting the organ.
A cell is the basic unit of life in a group of living matter. In this picture you see the epithelial cells (MC) that make up a columnar epithelium.
A organelle performs important cellular function with in a eukaryote cell. The cell membrane encloses cell contents, regulates movement of materials in and out of cell, helps maintain cell shape, and communicates with other cells.
A macromolecule is a large molecule made of lots of molecules. This macromolecule is used to hold together genetic material. And is also used for development in life.
A molecule is the smallest unit of most compounds. The molecule Glucose is the body's key source for energy.
An atom is the basic unit if life. In this picture the atom carbon is being shown, Hydrogen, oxygen and Carbon make up 99% of the human body

"The whole is greater then the sum of its parts,"
This statement applies to an organism due to fact that all the components that come together to make that organism are less then it as a whole. This can also be seen in a house. The material that makes up a house (nails, wood, screws and paint) is less then the house as a whole. Even though the nails, wood, etc. are important they cannot do what the house as a whole can do. This applies to an organism also, the atoms, molecules are important, but do not function as well as they do when put together. When all of these components come together they create a new, better functioning object.
