rate of diffusion

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The Rate Of Diffusion Diffusion is the passive and random movement of particles from a gas or a liquid from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration until the particles are evenly distributed (this does not mean that the particles stop moving). ...read more.

Conclusion

Due to this, the concentration gradient decreases and because the concentration gradient is proportional to the rate of diffusion, as the concentration gradient decreases so does the rate of diffusion. To conclude, the rate of diffusion is inversely proportional to the diffusion length (meaning that as the diffusion length increases, the rate of diffusion decreases). ...read more.
