A mechanical wave is a wave that is not capable of transmitting its energy through a vacuum. Mechanical waves require a medium in order to transport their energy from one location to another. A sound wave is an example of a mechanical wave.

Mechanical waves require a medium in order to transport energy from one location to another.


no, but active transport on the other hand, does require transport proteins to transport the large molecules into the cell.


Mechanical waves require media through which they can travel.


Did NaCl require a transport protein for diffusion?




Mechanical waves require a medium (substance) to travel in, other waves do not. For example, sound is a mechanical wave and require a medium (air, water, etc.), light is not a mechanical wave and does not require a medium


Mechanical waves require a medium for their travel.


Passive transport... the opposite of active transport.



Mechanical waves require a medium



Mechanical waves require a medium for their propagation whereas electromagnetic waves require a medium for their propagation.


Passive transport does not require energy (ATP), whereas active transport does.


yes. Active Transport does require cellular energy. Passive transport does not. (:


The two types of cell trnsport it Passive Transport and Active Transport. Active Transport does require energy to move into and out of the cell. Passive Transport doesn't require energy to move into and out of the cell. Hope I helped!


active transport requires energy.



Both facilitated transport and active transport require the substance that passes the membrane to pass through intermembrane proteins. However, unlike active transport, facilitated transport does not require ATP because it is not actively going against the concentration gradient.


No. Waves that require a medium to travel in are called mechanical waves. Electromagnetic waves are not mechanical waves and do not require a medium.


Active transport does require a carrier protein. Each protein is specific to one particular molecule.


This type of transport is generally called passive transport.



No, it is passive transport because it does not require any of the cell's energy.


yes, active transport does require energy.
