Difference between Passive and Active Absorption

Active absorption
1. It is as activated energy dependent process
2.  It occurs against concentration gradient and osmotic forces
3. It is driven by metabolic or physiological forces
4. It is linked to cellular metabolism
5. It does not lead to an equilibrium condition
Passive absorption
1. It is as spontaneous, energy independent process
2. It occurs in accordance with concentration gradient
3. It is driven by non-metabolic physical forces
4. It is not linked to cellular metabolism
5. It leads to an equilibrium condition
