Whenever there is a concept of diffusion involved and we need to decipher what is going to happen we tend to draw common tangent s in the phase field diagrams and decide which direction the diffusion is going to occur.(Whether the rich will become richer in concentration or it will distribute to maintain uniformity).However I do not understand how drawing tangents and judging their y intercepts will help me to take the decision.Please explain diffusion closely in this context.
