Keywords: Active Transport, Osmosis, Diffusion, lungs, alveoli, villi, stomata, root hair cell The Intestine Active Transport
VILLI= tiny protrusions in the intestine which help to
Human Kidney absorb the products of digestion
Vital for homeostasis Use active transport + diffusion to gain as much of
Works by filtering everything from blood and then the valuable materials, especially sugar, as possible
reabsorbing all the sugar, as well as the mineral ions Villi help increase absorption because they:
and water needed. Have a large surface area (squashed up)
Active transport ensures ALL sugar is reabsorbed and Are moist
diffusion makes sure mineral ions and water is Are very close to a large network of capillaries
reabsorbed in the right amounts (absorbed straight into blood stream)
Hot day with little water intake = little urine
Active Transport-
requires energy to
Cold day with large water intake = lots of urine (dilute)

Dialysis Transplant concentration
·Much more readily ·Eat what you like
available ·Lead a normal life
·Enables you to lead ·Free from restrictions
relatively normal life which come with regular
·No risk of rejection dialysis sessions
Transpiration is the loss of water by evaporation from plants.
·No need for medicine
Plants lose water when they open the stomata in the leaves to let in carbon dioxide.
Transpiration happens faster in hot, dry, windy conditions.

Then releases oxygen into cells.
