17. Assuming the diffusion is driven simply by thermal random motion, by what factor would the diffusion time across the bacteria change if we were to raise the temperature from 23°C to 30°C (and assuming the mean free path of the protein is the same)? a. The time becomes longer by a factor of 1.017. b. The time becomes longer by a factor of 1.034. c. The time becomes shorter by a factor of 0.967. d. The time becomes shorter by a factor of 0.988. e. The time becomes shorter by a factor of 0.876.
