Cell Transportation Passive Transport Materials are moved in or out of the cell WITHOUT energy being used. Molecules move from High Low concentration. 3 Main Types Diffusion Movement of high to low concentration Concentration gradient Temperature, size of molecules, and the concentration gradient affect the rate of diffusion Equilibrium is when a substance reaches an equal concentration on both sides Facilitated Diffusion When molecules are too large to fit through normally, proteins can help! Still moving from high to low concentration Known as transport proteins Osmosis Diffusion of WATER High to low concentration of water This usually means it moves from low concentration of solutes to high concentration of solutes Hypertonic Solute concentration outside of the cell is greater than the solute concentration inside of the cell Hypotonic Hypotonic Solution: solute concentration outside of the cell is
