Danny Marnell BioE 210 HW #3 1. The difference between a reversible and irreversible chemical reaction is that when a reversible reaction reaches chemical equilibrium, there is only a slightly larger amount of product concentration that reactants, while equilibrium of irreversible reactions occurs when all of the reactant has been converted to product. 2. See attached. 3. 3) Membranes are more permeable to non-polar molecules rather than polar molecules because non-polar molecules are able to diffuse easily through the non-polar membrane, whereas the diffusion of polar molecules across the membrane is resisted and therefore is less permeable. 5) Along with the ion concentration gradient, the electrical gradient also is a driving force for ion diffusion. 9) Active transport differs from facilitated diffusion primarily in that it brings an ion against its electrochemical gradient. To accomplish this, energy must be spent, and so active transport uses ATP to complete its function. 10) During cotransport, sodium ions move into the cell, helping the solute move into the cell as
