Cell Transport

Semipermeable allows some particles in and out of the cell
Cell Membrane maintains homeostasis & regulates what goes in and out
Diffusion Movement of molecules from high to low concentration
Osmosis Movement of water from high to low concentration
Facilitated Diffusion Use of a carrier protein to transport molecules
Passive Transport Movement with no energy
Active Transport Movement with energy; going against the gradient
Isotonic equal movement of water in and out of cell; no size change
Hypertonic Less water outside of cell; cell will shrink
HypOtonic More water outside the cell; cell will swell
Exocytosis Moving molecule out of the cell; Exit. Needs energy
Endocytosis Moving molecules inside the cell; IN; Needs energy
Solutes Suck water towards it
Equilibrium Cell is equally balanced
Passive Transport Examples Osmosis, Diffusion, Facilitated Diffusion
Active Transport Examples Endocytosis, Exocytosis, Pumps
