When a crystal of potassium permanganate is placed at the bottom of water in a beaker, the water in the whole beaker turns purple on its own, even without stirring. This is an example of:
When a crystal of potassium permanganate is placed in a beaker of water, the water slowly turns blue on its own, even without stirring. Both potassium permanganate crystal and water are made up of tiny particles. On dissolving, the particles of potassium permanganate get into the spaces between the particles of water. This process is called diffusion.

When a drop of blue ink is put in water, the blue colour spreads and the whole solution becomes blue. Name the phenomenon due to which this happens.All In One - Science
A student placed a gas jar containing air in the upside down position over a gas jar full of red-brown bromine vapours. He observed that the red brown colour spread upwards into the jar containing air. Based on this observation, the student concluded that it is only the bromine vapour which moves up and diffuses into air in the upper jar, the air from the upper jar does not move down by diffusion into the lower jar containing bromine vapours. Do you agree with this conclusion of the student? Give reason for your answer.Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - Chemistry
