  • Q1
    What is the function of the cell membrane?
    modifies, sorts, and packages proteins
    regulates what enters and leaves the cell; provides support and protection
    controls the cell's activities
    makes proteins

  • Q2
    Cell membranes are constructed mainly of
    carbohydrates
    protein pumps
    phospholipids
    salts
    30s
  • Q3
    The movement of water molecules across a selectively permeable membrane is known as
    osmosis
    30s
  • Q4
    A substance that moves across a cell membrane without using the cell's energy tends to move
    away from the area of equilibrium
    toward the area where it is more concentrated
    away from the area where it is less concentrated
    away from the area where it is more concentrated
    30s
  • Q5
    The type of endocytosis in which the cell membrane engulfs large particles; means "cell eating"
    facilitated diffusion
    pinocytosis
    phagocytosis
    osmosis
    30s
  • Q6
    The process where pockets form along the cell membrane, fill with liquids or fairly large molecules, and pinch off to form vacuoles within the cell is known as
    osmosis
    endocytosis
    facilitated diffusion
    passive transport
    30s
  • Q7
    What is the main way that active transport differs from diffusion?
    Active transport requires energy.
    Active transport moves molecules down the concentration gradient.
    Active transport does not require energy.
    Active transport moves molecules from areas of high concentration to low concentration.
    30s
  • Q8
    The form of active transport in which large amounts of materials in a vacuole fuse with the cell membrane and are released from the cell is called
    facilitated diffusion
    osmosis
    endocytosis
    exocytosis
    30s
  • Q9
    The process in which molecules that cannot diffuse across the cell membrane on their own diffuse through transport proteins instead is known as
    facilitated diffusion
    active transport
    simple diffusion
    endocytosis
    30s
  • Q10
    What will happen if a cell is placed in a hypertonic solution?
    Solutes will diffuse in and the cell will burst.
    Water will diffuse in and the cell will burst.
    Water will diffuse out and the cell will shrink.
    Solutes will diffuse out and the cell will shrink.
