Cell Transport

STUDY
PLAY
Cell Transport
Movement of material in or out of the cell
Brownian Movement
Is the constant random movement of molecules
Semi Permeable Membrane (SPM)
Membrane where only some items can pass through
Passive Transport
Transport that doesn't require any energy
Active Transport
Transport that requires energy, uses ATP
Diffusion
Movement of molecules from one area of high concentration to low concentration
Osmosis
Movement of water through the SPM from an area of high concentration
Isotonic Solution
Solution were the outside and inside concentration are the same, so the cell stays the same
Hypertonic Solution
Solution were the outside has less water than the inside so the cell loses water
Hypotonic Solution
Solution were the outside has more water than the inside so the cell gains water, which will cause turgor pressure
Turgor Pressure
The pressure built up in a cell due to excessive amounts of water
Endoocytosis
A type of active transport where bulk material enters the cell, like Phagocytosis and Pinocytosis
Phagocytosis
A type of active transport where bringing large solids enter inside the cell using pseudopod, "Cell Eating"
Pinocytosis
A type of active transport where fat droplets enter the cell without using pseudopod, "Cell Drinking"
Exocytosis
A type of active transport where bulk material is removed from the cell, "Cell Puking"
Carrier Molecule
Special proteins in the SPM that bring protein inside the cell
