Osmosis - movement of water through a differentially permeable membrane a) From high concentration to low concentration b) Selectivity - active transport 3. Carrier systems a) Chloroplast 1) H + pumped into thylakoid lumen 2) H + then transported to outer stroma and coupled to make ATP b) Mitochondrion 1) H + pumped out to intermembrane space 2) H + then transported to inner matrix and coupled to make ATP II.
