TiangcoRate of DiffusionIntroductionDiffusion is defined as the net movement of molecules from an area of greater concentration toan area of lesser concentration. The molecules in a gas, a liquid or a solid are in constantmotion due to their kinetic energy. Molecules are in constant movement and collide with eachother. These collisions cause the molecules to move in random directions. Over time, however,more molecules will be propelled into the less concentrated area. Thus, the net movement ofmolecules is always from more tightly packed areas to less tightly packed areas. Many thingscan diffuse. Odors diffuse through the air; salt diffuses through water and nutrients diffuse fromthe blood to the body tissues.This spread of particles through random motion from an area of high concentration to an area oflower concentration is known as diffusion. This unequal distribution of molecules is called a
