I don't understand why as the steepness of a concentration gradient increases, the rate of diffusion increases as well. I would think it would decrease. I looked it up in google and read some articles but I still don't understand. can someone explain this to me?

    It works just like Le Chatelier's Principle. The higher the concentration, the more must leave to try to return the original sample to equilibrium.
