Question

The rate of diffusion is dependent upon the permeability of the medium, it however


  1. does not influence the final equilibrium of diffusion

  2. influences the final equilibrium of diffusion as it is never reached if the medium is dense

  3. does influence the final equilibrium of diffusion

  4. None of the above


Solution

The correct option is A

does not influence the final equilibrium of diffusion


If the medium is more dense, the molecules, atoms, ions of solids, liquid or gases will take more time to get evenly distributed. The equilibrium is the state where the concentrations of the diffusing substances become even everywhere. This state is not changed. Even if the diffusion is slow in a dense medium, the equilibrium will eventually be reached.
