Molecules move from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration

Diffusion

When the number of molecules is equal in two areas

Equilibrium

Water molecules move from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration

Osmosis

The diffusion of larger molecules through the cell membrane

Facilitated Diffusion

When energy is required to move molecules

Active Transport

The process of taking substances into a cell by surounding it with the cell membrane

Endocytosis

The process of releasing large particles out of a cell.

Exocytosis

Substances too large pass through the cell membrane and enter through a process called

Endocytosis

What does selectively permeable mean?

Selectively permeable is something that allows some things to enter or leave the cell while keeping other things outside or inside the cell. An example is a window screen.

Whats the difference between passive and active transport?

Passive transport moves things through the cell membrane without the input of energy. Active transport moves things through the cell membrane, but, an input of energy is required.

Whats the difference between osmosis and diffusion?

Osmosis moves water, but diffusion moves molecules
