the rate of diffusion of liquids is higher than that of solids. why?
because the particles of liquid are loosely packed and there is intermolecular space between them and so they intermix with other particles and hence theor rate of diffysion is high . and in solid the particles are tightly packed and so no intermolecular space and low rate of diffusion.
*THE RATE OF DIFFUSION IS FASTEST IN GASES SLIGHTLY LOW IN LIQUIDS AND SLOWEST IN SOLIDS
* The reason for taking place of diffusion faster in liquids as comapred to solids is that there are strong forces of attraction between particles of solids so they cant so as they are closely packed whereas in liquids there is a force of attraction but force is not as strong as they are in solids and in liquids the particles are much more far away to each other and the distance between liquid particles is more than sustance between solid particles
* so diffusion is faster in liquids as compared to solids....
