of ,solid, liquids, gases, which diffuse and which so not diffuse?
Matter is anything that occupies space and has mass. Thus, there are fundamentally three types of matter which is solid liquid and gas. But why do gases and liquids diffuse and not solids? It is because of the molecular structure of these components of matter. If we examine the molecular structure of gas the molecules are highly scattered and liquid has also almost the same structure as mediocrely scattered that these particles can easily slip through other substances unlike solid which is entirely intact.
