8. Molecules are constantly _____________________.

9. What is meant by equilibrium?

10. Do molecules stop moving when equilibrium is reached? Explain.

11. List three things that determine if a molecule will be able to diffuse across a membrane.

12. Name the 2 parts of a solution.

13. Define osmosis. Is it passive or active transport?

14. The direction water moves across a cell membrane depends on the concentration of what on either side of the cell membrane?

15. Explain what is true about solutes if the outside of the cell is hypotonic to the cytosol? Which way does water move?

16. Explain the solute conditions if the outside is hypertonic to the cytosol. Which way does water move?

17. What occurs if the solute concentration on each side of the cell membrane is isotonic?

18. If the inside & outside of a cell are both isotonic, does water still move across the cell membrane? Explain.

19. If the inside of the cell is hypotonic, the outside will be _________________________.

21. How does a unicellular paramecium get rid of its excess water? Is energy used?

22. Many cells in multicellular organisms have _________________ pumps to prevent them from taking in too much water in hypotonic solutions.

23. What structure around the outside of plant cells keeps hem from rupturing from too much water?

24. What is turgor pressure & how does it help plant cells?

25. What happens to plant cells placed in a hypertonic solution? Name this process.

26. What is cytolysis & what causes it?

27. Another type of passive transport is __________________________ diffusion.

28. Explain how carrier proteins help in facilitated.

29. Sketch the changes that take place in a carrier protein as it helps molecules move across the cell membrane.

30. What sugar moves across the cell membrane by facilitated diffusion?

31. What are ion channels & are they used in passive or active transport?

32. Name 4 ions that cross the cell membrane through ion channels.
