Solution :-

Factors which affect rate of diffusion are:

(1) The Gradient of concentration: Rate of diffusion affected by gradient of concentration in positive manner like with increases in rate of diffusion concentration gradient increases across the barrier.

(2) Permeability of membrane: Permeability of membrane increases with increase in Rate of diffusion which helps in diffusion of substance inside the cell

(3) Temperature: With the increase in temperature rate of diffusion increases because high temperature makes cells more permeable.

(4) Pressure: In cell diffusion takes place from high partial pressure to low partial pressure therefore pressure also affects the rate of diffusion.
