Methods of transport

  • Diffusion
  • Facilitated Diffusion
  • Osmosis
  • Active Transport

Diffusion:

Through a Membrane, is passive due to the molecules already having kinetic energy and goes from a higher concentration to a lower concentration until an equilibrium is reached. Movement of particles is random.

Can: Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide

Cant: Glucose , Water

Facilitated Diffusion:

Through a membrane with the help of an intrinsic protein to help pass the molecules across the membrane that are water soluble. The…
