Solutions to Homework # 2 Problem 1 a) Calculate Dt and compare with the sample size to see if we should use short-time or long-time solution. Since Dt cm cm = × × = << 1 10 100 0 01 1 6 . we should apply the short-time solution. One of the two surfaces at x=0 is schematiclly shown in Figure. x C o C s = 0 c x =0 The initial and boundary conditions are given by: c x c g cm c t c t c ( , ) / ( , ) ( , ) 0 1 10 0 0 0 5 3 0 = = × = = The general error function solution is c x t A Berf x Dt ( , ) ( ) = + 2 Using the above boundary conditions, the constant A and B are given by: A = 0 B = c o Therefore, the concentration profile after 100s is: c x t c erf x Dt erf x Dt ( , ) ( ) ( ) = = × 0 5 2 1 10 2 b) The surface flux is given by J D c x c D t g cm s x x = = = − = − = − × × × = − × 0 0 0 5 6 10 2 1 10 1 10 100 564 10 π π .

### 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.
