Is diffusion a reversible movement?

Post by allanwong46 » Thu Feb 09, 2006 9:40 am

we get used to immerse the vegetable into a tank of water before cooking in order to remove the fertilizer inside it.

however,is it true that if we immerse the vegetable into the water for a long time,the fertilizer in the water will diffuse back into the vegetable??

thx a lot!!

@biofreak20:
YOu mean you don't understand it yet or...? If it is so, ok, now please explain me the definition of diffusion according to you. Then I'll explain it further :)
