If there's a bigger surface area to volume ratio, there is a bigger rate of diffusion, which is a good thing. This is why the roots of a plant have hair.

How does surface area to volume ratio of a cell affect rate of diffusion?

The surface area to volume ratio of a cell affects the rate of diffusion in that the higher the ratio, the faster the rate of diffusion. This is a directly proportional relationship.

Why a high ratio of surface area to volume benefits a cell?

A high surface area to volume ratio allows the diffusion of water, nutrients, and wastes be more efficient. A higher surface area permits more substances through the cell membrane, and makes the diffusion process more effective and efficient. Hope this helped :)

How are living organisms adapted to increase the possibility of diffusion?

They use folding or other methods to increase surface area. Greater surface area to volume ratio makes for increased speed of diffusion.


How can you obtain a cell's ratio of surface area to volume?

To obtain the ratio of surface area to volume, divide the surface area by the volume.
