The gradient can be calculated by comparing the solute particles from one solution with another. Distance determines the gradient levels within the solution.

AnswerParticles move from regions of higher concentration to regions of lower concentration because of the concentration gradient,they move down gradient i.e from high to low concentration

Convection is the movement of particles due to a gradient of energy. Heat energy is thus transfered by the moving particles.

In biology, diffusion is the passive movement of molecules or particles along a concentration gradient, or from regions of higher to regions of lower concentration. Diffusion is the free movement of particles in a liquid or gas down a concentration gradient.

Going with the concentration gradient is basically the process of diffusion. Molecules going from a low concentration to a high concentration would be going with the concentration gradient. Going against the concentration gradient would be the movement of particles from a high concentration to a low concentration

A concentration gradient is the graduated difference in concentration of a solute within a solution (in osmosis and diffusion). The greater the difference in concentration of particles, the steeper the gradient.

Two things are required: a driving force for movement and the ability to move. The driving force for movement can be summed up in the Gibbs free energy - or the chemical potential of the particles. A concentration gradient can be created by changing the conditions of two regions by imposing a temperature gradient, a pressure gradient, or an electrochemical gradient. None of this will make the particles move though if they are locked in place in a solid of course - at least on a human time scale. You can get migration of particles in solids over very, very, very long time periods.

Diffusion is influenced by temperature, pressure, particles dimension, concentration gradient.

The difference in the concentration of dissolved particles from one location to another is called a concentration gradient.

The difference in the concentration of dissolved particles from one location to another is called a concentration gradient.

Particles move from where they are in high concentration to where they are in low concentration.

Active transport requires energy and moves particles against the concentration gradient. To move necessary molecules from an area of high concentration to an area that is lower using chemical energy is called primary active transport.

passive diffusion requires absolutely nothing, no energy either, the particles simply flow from a high concentration gradient to a low concentration gradient. Active transport however require carrier proteins to allow the particles through the cell membrane

it is when gas particles move from a higher concentration gradient to a lower concentration gradient . for example: in the alveolus oxygen diffuses into the blood capillaries from the alveolus because there is more oxygen in the alveolus compared to the blood capillaries. andkind of like diffusion

because the membrane is permeable to the particles in the suspending solution. The particles will move along a concentration gradient into the cells. As the particles enter the cell and the internal concentration of total particles increases, water flows in to compensate.

There is a direct relationship between the voltage gradient of an electric field and the separation of the charges. Higher voltage gradients will separate charges farther.

In diffusion, the movement of particles across a membrane is driven by an electrochemical gradient-the ion's concentration gradient and the membrane potential. Substances will passively diffuse down their concentration gradient to where they are less concentrated. Since the inside of a cell is negative compared to its outside, the membrane potential will drive the passive transport of cations into the cell and anions out of the cell due to electrostatic attractions.

Increasing the temperature, lighter particles, higher surface area to volume ratio and a steeper concentration gradient.

There are two types of diffusion. Facilitated and non facilitated. Diffusion occurs when there is a concentration gradient. That is, when an area has more concentration than the other area. Diffusion is used to transfer particles from one place to another. Active transport is used to transfer particles, usually occurring against a concentration gradient. Active transport requires energy to occur however, diffusion does not. There are two types of diffusion. Facilitated and non facilitated. Diffusion occurs when there is a concentration gradient.

Diffusion is the movement of particles from an area of high concentration to an area of a lower concentration down a concentration gradient.

Materials can enter and exit cells in multiple ways. There is the process of osmosis, where water particles move through the partially permeable membrane in the cell wall to a higher concentration gradient - this does not require energy. There is also diffusion, where particles small enough to fit through the partially permeable membrane move down a concentration gradient - this also does not require energy. And then there is active transport, where the cell wall can actually move particles into the concentration gradient they would not naturally move to, and this does require energy. Hope I helped :)

Active transport: The movement of particles against the concentration gradient into or out of a cell. Bulk transport:The movement of large molecules into or out of the cell. Both of these require energy
