Diffusion and Dispersion

  1. Apr 22, 2010 #1
    I'm having a wording issue in a paper I'm writing. Specifically, I'm trying to decide between arguing something is "diffusion" vs. "dispersion". Can anyone point me to a reference that clearly demarcates between these?

    In specific, I'm referring to the diffusion/dispersion of an injected drug in the bloodstream.
