Question and answer
How does passive transport differ from active transport?
Passive transport involves carriers, channels, or direct diffusion through a membrane. This type of transport always operates from regions of greater concentration to regions of lesser concentration. No external source of energy is required. [ In active transport it is possible to go against the concentration gradient. In active transport, a source of energy is required to move the carrier
and its materials. ]

Weegy: Body-cavity searches are always degrading. This is true in all cultures, but especially so in some particularly sensitive ones. [ The more sexual and religious taboos there are, and cultural bans on sexual matters, including homosexuality, the more certain procedures such as rectal probes are considered offensive and humiliating. When such searches are strictly necessary, they should be explained to prisoners in a language they understand, and carried out in a humane way with as much privacy as possible. ] (More)
