Which is faster facilitated diffusion or active transport? Ideas are given.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 5:26 pm ad1c9bdddf
The type of transport mechanism is not connected with rate of reaction. However, the rate of reaction is tied to the concentration gradient for facilitated diffusion and with an energy source for active transport.
In facilitated diffusion, molecules/ions are moved across the membrane DOWN their concentration gradient. The free energy for ...
This job examines the type of transport mechanism.
