  • Plasma Membrane Passive Transport
    305 words
    AP Biology 9/14/01 Plasma Membrane The fluid mosaic of a plasma membrane is made up of a semi permeable double barrier of phospholipids called a bi layer. A phospholipid is a phosphorus element with two fatty acids acting as tails. Due to the hydrophilic property of phosphorous, and the hydrophobic property of the fatty acids, this causes the phospholipids to line up in two rows with the tails in together because there are aqueous solutions on either side. This causes a semi permeable barrier th...
