    1. osmosis is the diffusion of water down its gradient (H2O moves to where there is less water) so it takes no energy, therefore it's passive. 2. If a cell is placed in a hypotonic solution then water will go into the cell, causing the cell to swell. 3. Osmosis IS the diffusion of water: water moves down its gradient (high to low concentration)
