Diffusion in liquids?

  1. Jul 25, 2010 #1
    Is the property of evaporation and spreading out of drop of ink in water is said to be example of diffusion in liquids or not?
    I think property of rapid intermixing of a substance to another is called diffusion so in liquids evaporation can be regarded as diffusion property.
