Discussion of all aspects of cellular structure, physiology and communication.

i know this is my first post but im having trouble finding good, quality answers on the internet, so can someone help me out with these questions?
1. Which organelle would be involved in active transport.
2. advantages and disadvantages of electron microscope over light microscope
3. Why does active transport require energy
4. Why is the cell theory important
5. Does difffusion not occur across a semi permeable membrane, and can i say thats one way in that its different from osmosis
2-wave lengths and their link to separating power and colors.
3-Isn't that the definition of active transport? But if you think how passive transport works, that will tell you why you nee energy when it cannot work...
5-There is some diffusion across a semi-permeable membrane, but it is lmited, and it creates osmotic pressure. So you would have to be more precise

any proof. (Ashley Montague)
Cell theory is important because, its the base of all the biology we are having now.
* The cell is the fundamental unit of structure and function in living things.
* All organisms are made up of one or more cells.
* All cells come from cells during cellular division.
* All cells are essentially the same in chemical composition.
* Energy flow (metabolism and biochemistry) occurs within cells.
This theory also contains two exceptions:
1. Viruses are considered by some to be alive, yet they are not made up of cells.
2. The first cell did not originate from a preexisting cell.
It's biology - the rules that govern naming often aren't applied. Once something gets a label - hypothesis, theory, law - it often will hold that forever, even if the "rules" say it shouldn't.
Cell Theory is the closest to a classic law that biology has.
On the other question, I don't believe that most freshwater amebas are more dilute than marine environments (I know that vertebrates are, but I don't believe that protozoans followed that evolutionary path - could be wrong on this). There would be trouble with ion movement, but until that flux started up, probably no ionic issues
