Diffusion
1 Dissolved substances have to pass through the cell membrane to get into or out of a cell. Diffusion is one of the processes that allows this to happen
2 Diffusion occurs when particles spread
2.1 They move from a region where they are in high concentration to a region where they are in low concentration
2.1.1 This is true in gases and for particles dissolved in solutions
3 Diffusion happens when the particles are free to move
4 Particles diffuse down a concentration gradient, from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration
5 EG. This is how the smell of cooking travels around the house from the kitchen
