The average time it takes for a molecule to diffuse a distance of x cm is given by  t=(x^(2))/(2D)  where t is the time in seconds and D is the diffusion coefficient. Assume that the diffusion coefficient of glucose is 5.70 ×10−7 cm2/s. Calculate the time it would take for a glucose molecule to diffuse 11.5 μm
