There are two types of transport that can occur across the membrane: passive transport and active transport. ​Passive transport​ does not require energy and includes the processes of osmosis, diffusion and facilitated diffusion. The graphic shows the ​phospholipid bilayer​ and ​embedded proteins, ​the two main components of the cell membrane. Phospholipids are made of hydrophilic (water-loving) heads and hydrophobic (water-hating) tails. The phospholipids are arranged opposite to each other, with the heads pointing toward the cell’s environment and the tails aligning to each other. Color all the phospholipids (c) of the membrane red. Some small molecules, like oxygen, can move right across the phospholipid bilayer through a process called ​ diffusion​. Diffusion occurs when molecules move from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. Color the oxygen molecules green . Some molecules are too large to pass through the membrane. Molecules likes glucose, which is a sugar molecule, must use special proteins embedded in the membrane to move into the cell. These proteins are called ​channel proteins​, and they provide an opening, like a door, for large molecules to pass. Glucose will also move from areas of high concentration to low concentration, but because it needs the help of a protein, the process is called ​facilitated diffusion​. Color all the glucose molecules (d) purple . Color the channel protein (a) yellow . Osmosis is a Special Kind of Diffusion Osmosis​ is the process where water moves across the membrane toward the area with the highest solute concentration. A ​solute​ is a compound, like salt or sugar, that is dissolved in water. ​Hypertonic​ solutions have more solute in them, which cause water to move toward that area. Cells placed in hypertonic solutions will lose water and shrink. Solutions that have less solute molecules than the cell are called ​hypotonic​. In this case, water from outside the cell will move into the cell. The cell will gain water, expand, and could even burst. To summarize, the side with MORE solute is said to be hypertonic, and the side with less is said to be hypotonic. Color the water molecules blue , the solute molecules purple and the phospholipids red . Water will move toward the area with the highest solute concentration. passive transport 1 What type of transport does not require energy? _________________________________________________ osmosis Provide an example of one process that is a type of passive transport? _____________________________ phospholipid bilayer and embedded proteins 2.
