Question: the diffusion coefficients of small proteins are roughly 51010ms how...

Question details

The diffusion coefficients of small proteins are roughly 5*10-10m/s. How long (on average) does it take for a protein to diffuse from one side of a cell to the opposite side? How about for a protein to diffuse from the top of your head to your feet? And finally, how long (on average) for a protein to diffuse across the worlds smallest insect, Dicopomorpha echmepterygis, a parasitic wasp that is 189 μm long?
