DIFFUSION

  • Spreading out of particles from an area of HIGHER concentration, to an area of LOWER concentration
  • Happens in solutions and gases --> particles are free to move
  • Bigger the concentration gradient, the faster the diffusion rate
  • Higher the temp, the faster the diffusion rate --> particles have more energy, so move around faster
