particles all at x = 0 when t = 0, the concentration of particles at a
given point on the x axis at a given time can be calculated using the

Since the equation has one length dimension x, the concentration has
units of number of particles/m. The source of this equation was a
Stanford student, so it is automatically suspect. Before using it in your
research, you decide to test it and check that it agrees with our
