2. Define Active Transport

  • the movement of molecules against it's concentration gradient, using energy in the form of ATP, and transport proteins
  • the passive movement of molecules across membranes, down their concentration gradient, which is aided by carrier protein molecules.
  • the movement of molecules down a concentration gradient, from an area of high concentration, to an area of low concentration.
  • the movement of water molecules from a region of higher water potential, to a region of lower water potential, across a partially permeable membrane

3. what is the effect of a hypotonic solution on a plant cell?

  • net movement of water is out of the cell, causing it to become flaccid, and the cytoplasm to pull away from the cell wall, so that it is plasmolysed
  • net movement of water molecules is into the cell, causing it to burst.
  • net movement of water is into the cell, causing the cell to become turgid
  • water molecules move into and out of the cell in equal amounts, resulting in no changes to the cell.

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
