Read following information about how small intestine absorbs glucose: glucose molecules are absorbed more quickly than xylose molecules but r same size. 50% higher oxygen uptake when in presence of glucose in the small intestine than when absent. Cells lining small intestine have many mitrochondria
Explain how this information provides evidence glucose is absorbed by small intestine using active transport
Are you doing GCSE or A-level at the moment, as glucose isn't directly absorbed by active transport; it is absorbed by co-transport - let me know and I can explain?
If you don't understand, just let me know!
