Answer ( 1 )

  1. When a drop of ink is placed on the surface of water, it spread over the water and finally mixed with water because of the motion of particles, hence this process is diffusion. Thus, we can also state that the process by which molecules spread from areas of high concentration, to areas of low concentration takes place because of diffusion.
