Since half of the particles at point x move right and half of the particles at point x+Δx move left, the net movement to the right is: − 1 2 [ Consider a collection of particles performing a random walk in one dimension with length scale Δx and time scale Δt.

The Fick's law is limiting case of the Maxwell-Stefan equations, when the mixture is extremely dilute and every chemical species is interacting only with the bulk mixture and not with other

Fick's work was inspired by the earlier experiments of Thomas Graham, which fell short of proposing the fundamental laws for which Fick would become famous. Indeed, Φ ( x ) = 1 2 π ∫ − ∞ x e − t 2 2 d t = 1 2 [ 1 + erf ( x 2 For the case of diffusion in two or more dimensions Fick's Second Law becomes ∂ φ ∂ t = D ∇ 2 φ {\displaystyle {\frac {\partial \varphi }{\partial t}}=D\,\nabla ^{2}\,\varphi \,\!} Using the alternate value a≈0.147 reduces the maximum error to about 0.00012.[12] This approximation can also be inverted to calculate the inverse error function: erf − 1 ( x )

Washington D.C., USA; New York, USA: United States Department of Commerce, National Bureau of Standards; Dover Publications. Fick's experiments (modeled on Graham's) dealt with measuring the concentrations and fluxes of salt, diffusing between two reservoirs through tubes of water.

If, in its turn, the diffusion space is infinite (lasting both through the layer with n(x,0)=0, x>0 and that with n(x,0)=n0, x≤0), then the solution is amended only with coefficient 1⁄2 Intermediate levels of Re(ƒ)=constant are shown with thin red lines for negative values and with thin blue lines for positive values.

For anisotropic multicomponent diffusion coefficients one needs a rank-four tensor, for example Dij,αβ, where i, j refer to the components and α, β=1, 2, 3 correspond to the space coordinates. If the primary variable is mass fraction (yi, given, for example, in kg/kg), then the equation changes to: J i = − ρ D ∇ y i {\displaystyle J_{i}=-\rho D\nabla y_{i}} Fick's second law[edit] Fick's second law predicts how diffusion causes the concentration to change with time.

In dilute aqueous solutions the diffusion coefficients of most ions are similar and have values that at room temperature are in the range of 0.6×10−9 to 2×10−9m2/s. In inhomogeneous media, the diffusion coefficient varies in space, D=D(x). Matlab provides both erf and erfc for real arguments, also via W. The approach based on Einstein's mobility and Teorell formula gives the following generalization of Fick's equation for the multicomponent diffusion of the perfect components: ∂ φ i ∂ t = ∑

Bottom: With an enormous number of solute molecules, randomness becomes undetectable: The solute appears to move smoothly and systematically from high-concentration areas to low-concentration areas.
