3)Facilitated diffusion is a type of passive transport in which ions/molecules cross the semi permeable membrane because permeases present in the membrane facilitate the transport. Like simple diffusion facilitated diffusion doesn't require metabolic energy and simply occurs across the concentration gradient.
Osmosis (/ ɒ z ˈ m oʊ. s ɪ s /) is the spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a selectively permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides.
Osmosis is the act of water orfluid passing through a thin membrane.Osmotic is when fluid, like water absorbs through a membrane into aliq … uid solution. What is osmotic rupture? Osmotic rupture, known as cytolysis, happens when a cell suddenlybursts due to an osmotic imbalance in the cell.
Diffusion and Osmosis are both types of PASSIVE TRANSPORT - that is, no energy is required for the molecules to move into or out of the cell. Sometimes, large molecules cannot cross the plasma membrane, and are "helped" across by carrier proteins - this process is called facilitated diffusion.
