If, hypothetically speaking, 5 blocks a permeable substance of different volumes were cut into the same shape (cube) and placed into separate solutions of equal volumes, would the rate of diffusion be the same - despite diffusion taking longer to reach centre because of differences in sizes of the blocks?

Surely if the diffusion takes longer then the rate of diffusion can't be the same?

no the bigger the volume of the cube is, the smaller its surface area to volume ratio and the slower its rate of diffusion is.
