About This Quiz & Worksheet

This quiz and corresponding worksheet can help gauge your understanding of simple and facilitated diffusion and osmosis. Topics you will need to know in order to pass the quiz include the types of molecules that pass through fatty acid chains.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

Use these assessment tools to assess your knowledge of:

  • The direction of water inside of a cell
  • Type of transport that uses membrane proteins to passively move solutes
  • The type of diffusion of small polar molecules along a concentration gradient
  • Which type of integral membrane protein aides molecules moving across cell membrane

Skills Practiced

This worksheet and quiz let you practice the following skills:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related simple and facilitated diffusion and osmosis lesson
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about the integral membrane protein that binds and releases molecules in order to help them move across the cell membrane
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding molecules that can easily pass through the fatty acid chains of the bilayer

Additional Learning

To learn more about simple and facilitated diffusion and osmosis, review the corresponding lesson called, Passive Transport in Cells: Simple and Facilitated Diffusion & Osmosis. It can help you to:

  • Identify concentration gradients
  • Contrast and compare passive transport and simple diffusion
  • Define facilitated diffusion
  • Identify carrier proteins and channel proteins
  • Understanding osmosis
