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.

Faciliated diffusion is an active transport if diffusion is passive transport than faciliated diffusion must be active

The process that doesn't require energy is faciliated diffusion

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.

Facilitated and simple diffusion both transport solutes along a concentration gradient and neither processes require any ATP expenditure.

Because during active transport, the molecules are going against the concentration gradient which is unnatural where as during osmosis and facilitated diffusion, the molecules are moving with the concentration gradient, requiring no energy.

Molecules are moved through the cell membrane by active transport.

They both transfer or move molecules across the cell membrane.

Active Transport is carried out in our body cells. Active Transport uses energy to transport materials.

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.

active transport is active and passvie is not active brah brah

It has is in the name. Active Transport

Primary Active Transport Secondary Active Transport Exocytosis/Endocytosis

Active transport is selective, and passive transport is not.

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.

Passive transport and active transport are transport of materials across membranes. Passive requires no energy, while active does.

In primary active transport, the transport protein gets phosphorylated; in secondary active transport, the transport protein is not phosphorylated

Passive transport--active transport requires energy.

Facilated transport does not need to use energy but active transport does.

Active transport requires energy while passive transport does not.

Active transport requires energy; passive transport does not.

No, plasmolysis is not active transport it is passive transport through filtration.
