Question
  • 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
