A Cell As A Bag

a: A cell ~
b: a bag

What: "A cell cannot grow indefinitely in volume as it is limited by a plasma membrane. If it continues to increase in size, it will burst. In other words, a cell is like a bag which can carry a particular amount of things and weight. If you continue to add things, it can rupture." This idea should be extended a bit. A cell is sorta like a round water balloon. It can swell and is somewhat malleable, but if you hit it too hard the outer membrane will break and all the water spills.
