Passive Transport‚Äč -‚Äč ‚ÄčTransportation of particles across the cell membrane that uses no energy
Type of Transport
Definition
Diffusion
Particles move from
an area of high
concentration to an
area of low
concentration
Osmosis
Movement of water
across a selectively
permeable
membrane in order
to cause
concentrations to
reach an equilibrium
Facilitated
Transport
Protein channel
helps larger particles
diffuse across cell
membrane

Active Transport - Transport across the cell membrane that requires energy
Type of Transport
Definition
Molecular Transport
Carries things across the
membrane using proteins in the
membrane that require energy.
Usually the protein has to move
things against the concentration or
the protein has to move in order to
move the particles across
Phagocytosis
a type of endocytosis when a
particle is surrounded (engulfed) by
the cell and then brings it inside the
cell as a vacuole
Pinocytosis
A type of endocytosis where the
cell takes up liquid from the
environment by bringing in pockets
of membrane filled with fluid from
outside the cell
Exocytosis
Release of material from inside the
cell caused when a vacuole is
forced out of the cell
