From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Diffusion equilibrium is reached when the concentrations of the diffusing substance in the two compartments becomes equal.

Consider two systems; S1 and S2 at the same temperature and capable of exchanging particles. If there is a change in the potential energy of a system; for example μ12 (μ is Chemical potential) an energy flow will occur from S1 to S2, because nature always prefers low energy and maximum entropy.
Though the different systems are at equilibrum, there is still water passing through the [[semipermeable]] membrane. So if you put food coloring in system A, eventually it would be of equal color to system B.,
