The factors affecting the rate of diffusion are as follows

1. The density of the substance- The rate of diffusion of a substance is directly proportional to the square root of its relative density

2. Permeability of the medium- Rate of diffusion decreases with the permeability of the medium

3. Temperature- A rise in temperature increases the rate of diffusion

4. Diffusion pressure gradient- Rate of diffusion is directly proportional to the diffusion pressure gradient
