1. Facilitated diffusion is the passive movement of molecules across membranes, down their concentration gradient, which is aided by carrier protein molecules.

  • True
  • None of the above
  • the movement of molecules against it's concentration gradient, using energy in the form of ATP, and transport proteins
  • the movement of water molecules from a region of higher water potential, to a region of lower water potential, across a partially permeable membrane
  • the movement of molecules down a concentration gradient, from an area of high concentration, to an area of low concentration.
