    No energy expended

    Movement down concentration gradient
  61. Describe Diffusion of Water.
    Membrane lipids are fluid like

    Lipids are constantly moving

    The gradient of water molecules across the membrane
  63. Define isotonic solution.
    If dissolved species per unit volume in one solution is equal to the another, then the solutions are isotonic
  64. Define hypotonic solution.
    Dissolved species per unit volume is less than in a comparison solution.  Solution with fewer dissolved species is hypotonic relative to the other solution.
  65. Define hypertonic solution.
    Dissolved species per unit volume is greater than a comparison solution.  Solution with more dissolved species is hypertonic relative to the other solution.
  66. True or False: Most mammalian cells and bacterial cells thrive in isotonic environments.
