Why?? Which way?? Membrane Transport Membrane Transport 1) Passive Transport no energy required from high concentration to low concentration Passive Transport Passive Transport Simple Diffusion small or nonpolar example: O , CO 2 2 Facilitated Diffusion large or ions example: Na+, glucose Comparing Solute Comparing Solute Concentration Hypertonic = higher concentration of solutes Hypotonic = lower concentration of solutes Isotonic = same concentration of solutes Passive Transport Passive Transport Osmosis the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane down a concentration gradient Water ALWAYS moves from hypotonic to h...
