Unformatted text preview: movement as illustrated by the applet below. Larger particles move slower, due to their larger mass and may be influenced by numerous collisions with many nearby smaller particles. Smaller particles move faster. The overall energy of movement is proportional to the square root of the temperature. Hotter particles move faster because they have more energy. The rate of diffusion increases as temperature increases because the particles move faster. As temperature increases, the collisions among particles become more energetic, causing particles to move from areas of higher concentration to lower concentration at a faster rate....
