Caption: Potassium permanganate diffusion in water. Beaker containing potassium permanganate (purple) and water, and a clock being used to time how long it takes for the purple colour to spread through the water as the potassium permanganate dissolves. This apparatus is used to demonstrate diffusion in a liquid. Eventually, the random motion of all the potassium permanganate particles results in the purple colour being equally dispersed throughout the water. The process appears slow as the dissolved particles collide with the water molecules and each other, slowing their progress.
