Do molecules tend to move into areas where there are more molecules?
What are molecules that tend to move form an area of high concentration?
Most molecules will move from an area of high concentration to areas of low concentration due to diffusion. Ex: Water. ...

Molecules tend to move into area where there are more molecules?
That takes energy. Normal diffusion means that the molecules move away from each other (in other words ... to where there are less molecules). ...
Asked in Similarities Between
What are the similarities between heat and temperature?
Molecules tend to move faster as heat and temperature increase, and to move more slowly as heat and temperature decrease. ...
Asked in Atmospheric Sciences, Fluid Dynamics
Why does air move from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure?
In areas of high pressure the air is being pressed upon by the air above it with more force than usual, so it will tend to move away from such areas and toward areas where there is less force pressing down. ...
Fluids like air tend to move toward areas of high pressure?
No. Fluids move away from areas of high pressure and toward areas of low pressure. ...
Why lighter gases can difuse more rapidly than heavier ones?
The idea is that they tend to be made up of lighter molecules; on average, these move faster (for a given temperature) than heavier (actually, more massive) molecules. ...

In what direction do water molecules move during osmosis?
They tend to end up where there are less of them.They move along concentration gradient. ...
Asked in Biology, Genetics, The Difference Between
What is the concentration gradient?
As used in the process of diffusion, the concentration gradient is the graduated difference in concentration of a solute within a solution (as expressed per a unit distance). Molecules tend to move from areas of greater concentration to areas of lesser concentration. i.e. down the gradient. ...
Asked in Science
Why do urban areas tend to be warmer than rural areas?
Urban areas tend to be warmer than rural areas because they take up smaller spaces, include more air blockage due to many buildings in that space, and because they offer a much larger quantity of pavement that absorbs heat. Rural areas tend to have more air flow than urban areas, keeping them cooler. ...
Asked in Chemistry
In which state of matter are the atoms or molecules normally far apart from each other?
GAS in air and other gases, atoms or molecules have sufficient energy to separate from each other. The more energy that matter contains, the more freely its atoms or molecules move, because they are able to overcome the attractive forces that tend to hold them together. ...
When a protein channel allows molecules to cross through the cell membrane?
when a protein channel allows molecules to cross through the cell membrane this is called facilitated diffusion. many might mistake this for diffusion which is the process by which molecules tend to move from an area where they are more concentrated to an area where they are less concentrated. ...

If a bag is permeable to starch which way would the starch move?
Solutions tend to move from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. So if a bag is permeable to starch, the starch will rush into the bag. ...
Why does air move from high pressure to low pressure?
In areas of high pressure the air is being squeezed more by the air above it than it is in areas of lower pressure. So the air will tend to get pushed away from the high pressure area. ...
