What happens to a cells surface area to volume ratio as it increases in size?

As the surface to volume ratio increases the rate of in exchange increases too.

As the cell grows larger the ratio of surface area to volume increases. Larger cell = more volume for the amount surface area.

The ratio of surface area to volume increases. The area of a sphere is proportional to its radius squared. Volume is proportional to radius cubed. As the radius increases, the volume increases more than the surface area. As the radius decreases, the volume decreases more than the surface area, so the ratio of surface area to volume increases.

The ratio increases. Farting does not occur

The cell's ratio of surface area to volume would decrease if its volume increases more rapidly than its surface area.

The cell's ratio of surface area to volume would decrease if its volume increases more rapidly than its surface area.

The surface area-to-volume ratio.

As a cell grows, its volume increases as does its surface area. However, the ratio of surface area to volume decreases.

As a cell increases in size the volume increases much faster than the surface area. The possible answer is C.

The ratio decreases.

The ratio decreases.

As volume increases surface area increase, but the higher the volume the less surface area in the ratio. For example. A cube 1mmx1mmx1mm has volume of 1mm3 surface area of 6mm2 which is a ration of 1:6 and a cube of 2mmx2mmx2mm has a volume of 8mm3 and surface area of 24mm2 which is a ratio of 1:3.

As volume increases surface area increase, but the higher the volume the less surface area in the ratio. For example. A cube 1mmx1mmx1mm has volume of 1mm3 surface area of 6mm2 which is a ration of 1:6 and a cube of 2mmx2mmx2mm has a volume of 8mm3 and surface area of 24mm2 which is a ratio of 1:3.

it decreases

Volume increases more rapidly than surface area.

it callapses

If the length of the cube's side is 'S', then the surface area is 6S2 and the volume is S3 .The ratio of surface area to volume is 6S2/S3 = 6/S .This number is inversely proportional to 'S'. So as the side increases ...causing the volume to increase ... the ratio does decrease, yes.

decreases i believe(:

It increases.

The surface area increases by the square of the dimensions and the volume increases by the cube. Eventually the surface area will not have the correct ratio to take care of the insides and that is why we have multi-celled organisms

as the diameter decreases, the surface-to-volume ratio increases

The cell's ratio of surface area to volume would decrease. However, this scenario is extremely unlikely.

As the cell grows larger the volume amount increases at a higher rate then the surface area thus as cells increase in size they lose the high ratio of surface area to volume.
