Car Diagram

Featured

The Car Diagram below shows various parts of a car including the following components: engine, tires, brakes, lights, air bags, wheels, various systems (ignition, cooling and charging), transmission and others.

The heart of any vehicle is an engine At its core are the cylinders with pistons moving up and down. The cylinders can be arranged inline, in a V shape (arranged at an angle against each other) or horizontally. There are certain advantages to each car engine type depending on the vehicle. The engine also consists of the block, heads, valves and pistons.

The below diagram also shows the following components:
– Cooling system consisting of radiator, water pump, heater, hoses and thermostat
– Charging system consisting of the batter, alternator and regulator
– Ignition System that includes ignition wires, coil, spark plugs and distributor
– Brakes system made of disk brakes, drum brakes, anti-lock brakes, master cylinder and power booster.
Other auto parts are also illustrated on the below diagram.

Nerve Cell

Featured

Nerve Cell Diagram below is a typical illustration of this type of a human cell that makes up the cells in the nervous system. Nerve cell parts include nucleus, soma, dendrite, axon, myelin sheath, axon terminal, node of ranvier. This composition of the cell ensures that the neuron is functional with chemical signals transmitted to neighboring neurons.

All nerve cells respond to the external stimulus with an electric discharge that produces an electrical pulse of about 50-70 millivolts. This pulse is often referred to us an action potential. The electrical pulse travels down axon, which is the the fiber-like extension of the nerve cell. The speed of the impulse is about few tens of a meters per second and is a function of the fiber size. The transmission can be sent to a nearby nerve cell via a chemical neurotransmitter as soon as it gets to the axon terminal bundle. These types of nerve cells can be found all over the human body.

Plant Cell Diagram

Featured

Plant Cell is a basic block of the plant structure. The plant cell diagram below displays various parts of the cell including nucleus, cytoskeleton, cell wall, membrane, centrosome, central vacuole, chloroplast and others. Lets explain what each component is responsible for:

The nucleus is the commanding center of the cell controlling various functions of the cell and containing DNA. The nucleus is covered by the nuclear membrane. This is different from the cell membrane, which is a protein layer on the inside of the cell wall. The cell wall is a thick membrane that allows for passing of the nutrients and forms the structure of the plant together with other cells. The jelly material outside of the nucleus is called cytoplasm.

The key difference between plant cells and animals cells is the process of photosynthesis. Plant cells are able to convert sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into sugars (energy), oxygen and water. Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts, which contains chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a molecule responsible for this process and is usually green in color. The central vacuole stores sugars and water for cell’s use.

Plant cell diagram below lists various cell parts and explains some of their functionality.
