First 106 words of the document:

Diffusion: Osmosis: Active Transport:
What is being moved? Gas or Liquid Water Solute Molecules
Along or against concN Along- higher to lower Along- Higher to lower Against- Lower to Higher
Passive or Active? Passive (no energy required) Passive (no energy required) Active (energy is used)
Anything else involved -- A partially permeable A protein carrier is needed
with transport? membrane
Examples: Alveoli to blood (in your Water into red blood cells Mineral ions into root cells
lung) (plants) & glucose being
reabsorbed in the kidney
tubule (animals)
