Facilitated diffusion is a passive transport. It uses carrier proteins, but doesn't require any energy.

Facilitated diffusion doesn't require ATP, active transport does. As a result, active transport is faster than facilitated diffusion. Active transport is against the concentration gradient and involves endocytosis. Facilitated diffusion is down the concentration gradient.

No. Facilitated diffusion is a type of passive transport.

Facilitated diffusion and active transport differ because facilitated diffusion does not use energy. Active transport requires energy for it to work. So facilitated diffusion is more like passive transport.

diffusion occurs naturally facilitated diffusion and active transport need energy

active transport and facilitated diffusion both

In the facilitated diffusion the transport protein is needed as well in the active transport.

simple and facilitated diffusion don't require energy and are forms of passive transport. Active transport requires energy

Osmosis, diffusion, and facilitated diffusion are all opposites of active transport.

Active transport is the movement of molecules across a cell membrane. Facilitated diffusion is the process of spontaneous passive transport.

Active transport and facilitated diffusion are different in many ways but one way they are similar is they both use transport protein. A way they are different is facilitated diffusion does not require energy input from the cell while active transport does require energy input from the cell. Another way is facilitated diffusion is classified as passive transport, unlike active transport which is classified as active transport. The last way they differ is for the direction of movement facilitated diffusion goes with concentration gradient, while active transport goes against concentration gradient.

Facilitated diffusion is a type of passive transport which does not require the cell to expend energy.

No. Facilitated diffusion is an example of passive transport because it does not require the cell to expend energy.

Diffusion, facilitated diffusion, passive transport, facilitated transport (?) and active transport ... unless we are referring to viral or bacterial products.

Active transport and facilitated diffusion with in the cell are similar in that they are the means to move molecules in and out of the cell. Both methods are energy based operations.

facilitated diffusion, secondary active transport and active transport

Facilitated diffusion, or diffusion through ion channels, is not a form of active transport. It is a spontaneous passive transport.

Active transport involves carrier proteins. Carrier proteins bind themselves to particles and transport them to highly concentrated areas within a cell.Facilitated diffusion and active transport require carrier proteins.

Diffusion, osmosis, facilitated diffusion, and active transport

Pinocytosis active transport passive diffusion facilitated diffusion Phagocytosis :)

Active transport requires the cell to use energy, while facilitated diffusion does not.

Active transport is when proteins move substances into the cell while expending energy. Facilitated diffusion is the movement of chemicals through a protein into a cell.

Active transport moves solutes against their concentration gradient; facilitated diffusion moves substances down their concentration gradient.

Osmosis, diffusion, facilitated diffusion, active transport

P.I.S.O.- Potassium in Sodium out facilitated diffusion, active transport , and passive transport and simple diffusion.

Facilitated diffusion is a form of passive transport, in Facilitated diffusion molecules move across a semi-permeable membrane with the aid of specialized transports proteins and in active transport molecules move across the plasma membrane with the expenditure of ATP.
