General Statement of Mass Transport to a Planar Electrode Mass transfer to an electrode is governed by the Nernst-Planck equation . For one-dimensional mass transfer of a species i (or j ) along the x -axis: J i ( x ) =- D i C i ( x ) x - z i F RT D i C i ∂φ ( x ) x + C i v ( x ) where is the flux of species i(mol sec -1 cm -2 ) at a distance x from the surface. J i ( x ) D i is the diffusion coefficient ( cm 2 /sec) is the concentration gradient at a distance x , C i ( x )/ x is the potential gradient ( x )/ x z i and C i are the charge and concentration of species i, respectively, v(x) is the velocity (cm/sec) with which a volume element in solution moves along the axis. 1 st term (diff) 2 nd term (migr.) 3 rd term (conv.)
