      • Requires No Energy!
      NO ENERGY!!!
    • Diffusion
      • Happens in all systems
      • Systems eventually reach equilibrium
      • Downhill
      • Substances move from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration
    • Facilitated Diffusion
      • “ Helped” diffusion
      • Works using the same principles as diffusion
      • Usually uses protein channels
    • Osmosis
      • Diffusion of water through a membrane
      • Membrane is usually semi-permeable
        • Water can move
        • Solutes cannot move
      • Water is moving from an area where it is highly concentrate to where it is at a low concentration
    • Osmosis
      • Hypertonic- more solute than the surroundings
      • Hypotonic- less solute than the surroundings
      • Isotonic- equal solvent throughout the system
