Question 1 Report
The spreading of the scent of a flower in a garden is an example of_____?
The spreading of the scent of a flower in a garden is an example of diffusion. Diffusion is the movement of particles (molecules, ions or atoms) from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. In this case, the scent molecules of the flower move from the area of high concentration (the flower) to an area of lower concentration (the surrounding air) until they are evenly distributed throughout the space. This spreading of the scent is an example of the random movement of particles due to diffusion.
