Passive: Diffusion - movement of molecules from high density to lower density to form equilibrium Facilitated diffusion - movement of large water soluble molecules across membrane with assistance of carrier proteins Filtration - water forced across membrane, pressure gradient must be present (capillaries) Osmosis - diffusion with water molecules 1. water concentration is determined by amount of solutes,
