In this article, the fundamental questions concerning the diffusion path, in particular, what is the shape of diffusion path in ternary systems and how to approximate it from the initial concentration profile, will be answered. The new rules were found which allow for determining the diffusion path from a known initial concentration of the components. This approximation will allow for designing new materials without a time-consuming numerical simulation of the full system of equations. It is
