Cell Transport

TermDefinition
Osmosis Movement of a solvent (usually water) from a low solute concentration to a high solute concentration in order to equalize the concentration of the two solutions. No energy required.
Diffusion Movement of both solvent and solute particles from high concentration to low concentration in order to equalize the concentration of the solution. No energy required.
Facilitated Diffusion Movement of specific molecules down a concentration gradient (from high concentration to low concentration) passing through the membrane via a specific carrier protein. No energy required.
Active Transport Movement of a substance across a cell membrane against its concentration gradient from lower concentration to higher concentration. Energy required.
Endocytosis Movement of very large molecules (into the cell) across the cell membrane through the fusion of vesicles. Energy required.
Exocytosis Movement of very large molecules (out of the cell) across the cell membrane through the fusion of vesicles. Energy required.
Solute Substance dissolved in another substance.
Solvent The substance that dissolves another substance.
Isotonic solution Concentration (amount) of solutes is equal on both sides of the cell membrane; this allows the flow of water through the cell membrane to be equal.
Hypertonic solution Concentration (amount) of solutes OUTSIDE of the cell membrane is GREATER than inside cell; this promotes a greater flow of water outside the cell thus leading to cell shrinking.
Hypotonic solution Concentration (amount) of solutes OUTSIDE of the cell membrane is LESS than inside the cell; this promotes a greater flow of water inside the cell thus leading to cell bursting.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
