Homework Help: please help-plasma membrane

Posted by Nadia on Thursday, February 8, 2007 at 12:09am.

I got this question marked wrong on a paper. Unfortunately, my prof didn't explain.



_________________ subtances can pass through the plasma membrane.




I put "nonpolar". What is wrong with this and does anyone know the correct solution/answer? Thanks all.

Nonpolar is wrong. Polar water molecules pass thru easily.

There are three ways substances can pass true. I have no clue to the answer if one word is desired. "Transported" will work, however it is an incompleted answer. Visit the prof.
