The material is digested by enzymes within the cell. Any useful food products resulting from this process are absorbed into the cell cytoplasm.

Active transport Diffusion is a purely physical process in which molecules or salts move from a region of higher to a region of lower concentration. e. they move against the concentration gradient. This process is known as active transport, and it will only take place in a living system that is actively producing energy by respiration.

Body Systems and Functions 37 External intercostal muscle Ribs Internal intercostal muscle Fig. 12 Intercostal muscles and ribs for breathing. At normal atmospheric pressure, the previous process could not happen, hence the need for negative pressure in the thorax.
