    4. 4
    5. 6
    1. A solute concentration gradient
    2. The presence of an anion
    3. The presence of a cation
    4. The presence of ATP
    5. The presence of two different solutes
    1. A cotransporter
    2. Energy
    3. The solvent
    4. A high concentration of solute
    5. A lipophilic solute
    1. A counter transporter, where the two solutes are transported in opposite directions
    2. A transporter where a single molecule is transported across the membrane
    3. A transporter where two molecules are transported in the same direction
    4. A transporter that works by simple diffusion
    5. A transporter unique to the kidneys
    1. …faster and requiring lower concentrations than simple diffusion
    2. ...slower than simple diffusion
    3. ...faster at high concentrations than simple diffusion
    4. ....slower that simple diffusion but not limited by any factor
    5. ...slower at any concentration than simple diffusion
    1. … the number of carriers available on the cell membrane
    2. ...the amount of sodium in the extracellular space
    3. ...the amount of glucose in the intracellular space
    4. ... the amount of sodium in the intracellular space
    5. ... the amount of glucose in the extracellular space
    1. …in the GI tract and in the kidneys
    2. ...in the GI tract and in the liver
    3. ...in the distal tubules of the kidneys
    4. ...in the lungs
    5. ...in the brain
    1. P-type Sodium/potassium ATPase in the basolateral membrane of the cells
    2. V-type ATPases
    3. Simple diffusion
    4. Osmosis
    5. Secondary active transport
    1. Glucose spills over in the urine
    2. Glucose is reabsorbed in the distal tubule
    3. Excess glucose in the tubule is sensed and less is filtered by the glomerulis
    4. The macula densa is activated by glucose in the distal tubule
    5. Glucose is broken down into CO2 and water
