– Rate at which a molecule Rate disappears from the body disappears – Mass flow = concentration Mass volume flow • Homeostasis Homeostasis equilibrium!!
– Osmotic equilibrium – Chemical disequilibrium – Electrical disequilibrium

Passive: Active: MEDIATED BULK Figure 5-4 Membranes are selectively permeable Membranes: two meanings
• Membranous tissues: Membranous
– Example: pericardial membrane – Epithelial tissues: one to many cells thick • Cell Membranes (plasmalemma) enclose cells Figure 5-1 (2004): Membranes in the body (2004): 3 1/...
