Consider the following geometric solids.
A sphere with a ratio of surface area to volume equal to 0.08 m1.
A right circular cylinder with a ratio of surface area to volume equal to 2.1 m1.
What results would you expect if these two models were compared in a diffusion test?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A. The rate of diffusion would be the same for the two models. B. The rate of diffusion would be faster for the right cylinder. C. The rate of diffusion would be slower for the right cylinder. D. The rate of diffusion would be faster for the sphere.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose they have the same Volume ... which has bigger surface Area? (what does diffusion go _thru_?)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0d ?? the stuff needs to diffuse thru the surface, and the cylinder is shaped like a pencil! (the cylinder's surface Area is 24x as large as the sphere's Area). These ratios are Area/Volume, since they have units 1/m .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it will be the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how long will it take the stuff to get from the center of the spherical lump to the surface? it has to go 24x as far ... and the diffusion distance goes like sqrt(t) ... or diffusion time goes like d^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0bruh so its either b or c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the stretched sock dries fast. the stretched sock is shaped like the cylinder. drying takes place by diffusion, so the stuff only gets out if it's near the surface..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0come on! what don't you get, here? c and d mean the same thing (so you _know_ neither of them can be right!)
