What is the primary mode of transport of molecules?
Diffusion (high to low - no ATP or carrier)
What are the 5 factors that affects the rate of diffusion?
size of molecules,
surface area available for diffusion and
the medium (i.e. gas vs liquid)
What is the difference between primary and secondary active transport?
Primary used ATP directly while
secondary used energy provided by movementt of another substance
