osmosis the movement of water
hypertonic solution water moves out, cells shrink
hypotonic solution water moves in, cells swell
isotonic solution no water movement because it is equal
facilitated diffusion passive transport with help from carrier proteins
carrier protein helps with facilitated diffusion
