  5. diffusion
    move from an area that is more concentrated to a area that is less concentrated
  6. equilibrium
    concentration is the same throughout
  7. osmosis
    diffusion of waer through a selectively permeable membrane
  8. isotonic
    concentration is the same "same strength"
  9. hypertonic
    the more contraded one "above strength"
  10. hypotonic
    dilute "below strength"
  11. facilitated diffusion
    the cell membrane channels are said to facilitate the diffusion of sugar across the membrane
  12. active transport
    materials moved in opp. direction
  13. endocytosis
    process of taking material into a cell pockets of the cell membrane
  14. phagacytosis
    "cell eating" extensions of the cytoplasm surround a particle and package it in a food vacuole
  15. phocytosis
    tiny pockets from along the cell membrane fill with liquid and pinch to form vacuoles
  16. exocytosis
    process where the membrane of the vacuole surrounding the material fuses with with the cell membrane
  17. cell specialization
    cells throughout a organism can develop in different ways to preform different tasks
