Metabolism requires what?
Supply of material
Homeostatis requires what?
Coordination of body systems.
the spontaneous movement of particles from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration
The spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a semi-permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides.
