      Simple & Facilitated Diffusion
      Protein Pumps
      Endocytosis & Exocytosis
      Osmosis Practice Problems (Friday Lab)
    • Passive Transport
      “Passive Transport” means that the cell can move molecules in and out of the cell without using energy
      Passive transport relies on diffusion that naturally moves substances from high to low concentration
      There are 2 types of diffusion:
      Simple Diffusion
      Facilitated Diffusion
    • Simple Diffusion
      In simple diffusion, molecules pass directly through the membrane by slipping between phospholipids
      Simple diffusion is possible under 2 conditions:
      The molecule is small
      The molecule has no electric charge
    • Ions
      An ion is an atom or molecule that carries an electric charge. Ions may be either + or - .
      Ions can’t pass through a membrane because the non-polar “tails” repel charges.
      Salt is Ionic:
      Salt is made of Sodium [Na] and Chlorine [Cl]. When salt dissolves in water the Sodium becomes positive and the chlorine becomes negative.
    • Facilitated Diffusion
      Large molecules and ions can diffuse in and out of the cell by going through protein channels (tunnels).
      Each protein channel is shaped to work for only one specific molecule.

    • Active Transport
      In Active Transport, the cell uses energy to move substances through the membrane.
      This energy comes in the form of ATP molecules that are produced by mitochondria breaking down food.
      There are 3 types of active transport:
      Protein Pumps
    • Protein Pumps
      Protein Pumps use ATP energy to change their shape and force molecules in or out of the cell.
      Protein pumps can work against the direction of diffusion, allowing cells to maintain high concentrations of important substances.
    • Endocytosis
      Endocytosis brings a large number of molecules into the cell.
      Endocytosis begins with the membrane bulging inward to create a small pocket.
      The pocket pinches inward and forms a bubble (vesicle) inside of the cell.
    • Exocytosis
      Exocytosis removes a number of molecules from the cell.
      During exocytosis, a tiny bubble (vesicle) will join to the membrane and release the substances it carries to the outside.
