    1. The movement of molecules from an area of high to low concentration: ______________________.
    2. The movement of water across a membrane:  _______________________________
    3. A solution that has more molecules (like salt) outside the cell is a _______________________ solution. 
      *Cells in this solution will  gain or lose water? _____________
    4. A solution that has less  molecules (like salt) outside the cell is a _______________________ solution. 
      * Cells in this solution will  gain or lose water? _____________
    5. A solution that has the same number of molecules as the cell is a _____________________ solution. 
    6. This disease is caused by a failure of the cell membrane, which causes mucus to build up in the lungs: ______________________________________
    7. Cell membranes will let some things pass through them, this means they are _____________________.
