How does diffusion affect dynamic equilibrium?

1 Answer

The process of diffusion will lead to dynamic equilibrium being established.


Diffusion means the movement of particles from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration.

Equilibrium means that a balanced situation has been achieved (particles are evenly spread out). Dynamic means that things continue to happen - the particles don't stop moving!

Here is a video which discusses the topic of membrane channels, diffusion and dynamic equilibrium.
