    Explain diffusion stating what is required for it, what force is behind it, and what results when it is finished.

    For diffusion to occur, it must have a high to low concentration gradient. It is initiated by force supplied by Brownian movement, a random vibration of molecules. When diffusion is finished, it reaches a point of equilibrium (equal exchange).
