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

Passive and active transport. passive does not use energy, active does.

The difference between the two, is that on Active transport it uses energy (ATP). and Passive transport does not.

Transport is active and ATP dependent.

Ion channels. Active transport depends on ATP. Passive transport does not depend on energy.

Active transport uses energy in the form of ATP. Active can force electrons against the electron gradient as in the electron transport chain. Passive transport does not use energy and an example of passive transpost is osmosis.

Active transport requires energy usually from a molecule called ATP. Passive transport require no energy.

No. That is exactly the difference between passive and active transport processes.

ATP (adenosine triphosphate)

ATP is what is normally used for energy in cells.

No, osmosis is a form of passive transport.

no, because in passive transport, particles pass straight through the cell membrane without the cell using atp

Active transport requires energy in the form of ATP to go opposite the concentration gradient. Passive transport does not require energy because it does not oppose the concentration gradient.

active tranport (cell utillizes ATP) passive transport( no ATP used) Fassilated diffusion (career molecule used)

passive transport does not require energy (i.e. no ATP molecules involved) eg diffusion, osmosis active transport requites expenditure of energy (i.e. ATP molecules involved) eg sodium-potassium pump

Active transport requires ATP and passive transport does not. Active transport goes against the concentration gradient and passive transport goes with the concentration gradient and includes osmosis, diffusion and facilitated diffusion.

Yes, osmosis is a passive process, as it does not require input energy in the form of ATP.

Two forms of passive transport (or transport not involving energy/ATP) are diffusion and facilitated diffusion. Another form is osmosis. Also keep in mind that passive transport is for smaller particles.

No, osmosis is a form of passive transport.

During passive transport. The particles do this with out energy. During osmosis is also passive tranport. Active transport uses energy or ATP.

active transport uses energy in the form of ATP from the mitochondria whereas passive transport doesn't use energy active transport move against the concentration gradient while passive transport moves across the concentration gradient (passive transport = osmosis, diffusion)

yes, kinetic energy is used in passive transport

The major difference between them is the use of ATP which is required by active transport while passive transport does not need any energy (ATP). It means that active transport is the movement of any substance from lower to higher concentration, while passive transport is the movement from higher to lower concentration.
