    The following must be true for diffusion of a solute to occur across a partition that separates two compartments

    The partition is semi permeable

    There is concentration gradient across the partition

    The process is known as Osmosis

    Explanation:

    Diffusion is the migration of particles of a substance, liquid or gas, from a region of high concentration to a region of lower concentration and it only occurs where there is a concentration gradient for example spraying a perfume at a corner of a room, the spray sent spreads across the room as there is a concentration gradient

    Osmosis is the movement or diffusion of solvent molecules across a semi permeable membrane from a region of low solute concentration to a region of high solute concentration to create a balanced concentration of solute on both sides of the compartment.
