What is diffusion
The net movement of particles from a higher concentration to a lower concentration
1 of 5
What does is happen in and why
Diffusion happens in Liquids and gases as the particles are free to move
2 of 5
What is osmosis
diffusion of water molecules from a dilute solution to a more concentrated solution through a partially permeable membrane
