If the concentration of phosphate in the cytosol is 2.0 mM and the concentration of phosphate in the surrounding fluid is 0.1 mM, how could the cell increase the concentration of phosphate in the cytosol?
a) passive transport
b) diffusion
c) active transport
d) osmosis
e) facilitated diffusion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that is taking a lower concentration to higher concentration

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0diffusion moves from higher concentration to lower concentration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah. I can't figure out whether it's B or E

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Diffusion moved down the concentration gradient. you are looking for what moves up the concentration gradient.. from low to high.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0facilitated diffusion is a passive process that takes transport proteins to cross the membrane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohhh. I thought it meant the 2.0 was distributing to balance out the 1.0. So it's not diffusion...that's two answers down

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and osmosis equalizes through the semipermiable membrane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0though it does move solutes from a low concentration to a high concentration. hope i Helped. good luck :)
