(10 points) Solid-state diffusion can be described by Fick’s First Law. What are the names and SI units for the following terms in Fick’s First Law? J D Diffusivity or Diffusion coefficient (m 2 /s) dC/dx Concentration gradient (atoms/m 3 *1/m) What is the thermodynamical driving force for diffusion? Concentration gradient (entropy is increasing) Fick’s Second Law is a second order differential equation. What diffusion condition does Fick’s Second Law describe (i.e., what is the term dC x /dt?)? Non-Steady State Thermal activated processes are exponential functions of temperature that can be described by the following equation: Rate of reaction = C e -Q/RT What is the name of this type of equation? Arrhenius What does the term Q represent? Activation Energy (4 points) For nucleation of a solid from the liquid: What is the thermodynamic driving force? Volume free energy What is the thermodynamic retarding force? Surface energy What is the name for nucleation that occurs on the surface of a container or on insoluble impurities?

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
