What is the difference in filtration and diffusion?

Diffusion refers to the movement of a specific molecule from an area with high concentration to one with low concentration. Filtration refers to the movement of fluid (a mixture of many molecules) from one region of high pressure into another.



What is the difference between diffusion facilitated diffusion?

Simple diffusion moves molecules down the concentration gradient, while facilitated diffusion causes molecules to move up the gradient. Simple diffusion is passive, whereas facilitated diffusion uses energy.

What type of transport is filtration, and how do you know? What type of transport is filtration?

What is filtration anatomy?

Filtration is the process of transferring soluble components from blood into the glomerulus. Reabsorption is the process of absorbing molecules, ions and water from the blood back into the glomerular filterate.

What is simple diffusion in biology

Simple diffusion refers to the movement of solutes along a concentration gradient across a solution or across semipermeable membranes. Cell membranes are often equipped with specialized membrane proteins that help transport substances across them, unlike simple diffusion. This is called facilitated diffusion.
