• SteadyState Diffusion:
– Concentration profile IS NOT a function of
time • Nonsteady State (or Transient)
Diffusion:
– Concentration profile IS a function of time Chapter 5  14 Diffusion  Consider the Following

If the units of Flux J are (something  e.g. mol or kg)/m2s…
Then the units of concentration C HAVE to be (something)/m3
and vice versa! We do not care what that “something” is:
Cats, albatrosses, people, atoms, moles, kg…all fine!
The units of D are ALWAYS, and always will be, m2/s
Chapter 5  17 Example: Chemical Protective
Clothing (CPC)
• Methylene chloride is a common ingredient in paint
removers. Besides being an irritant, it also may be
absorbed through the skin. When using this paint
remover, protective gloves should be worn.
• If butyl rubber gloves (0.04 cm thick) are used, what
is the diffusive flux of methylene chloride through
the glove?
• Data:
– diffusion coefficient in butyl rubber:
D = 110 x108 cm2/s
– surface concentrations: C1 = 0.44 g/cm3
C2 = 0.02 g/cm3

Implicit in the equation for D:
Diffusion coefficient increases with increasing T D = Do exp  Qd
RT D = diffusion coefficient (m2/s)
D0 = preexponential term (m2/s)
Qd = activation energy (J/mol or eV/atom)
R = the gas constant (8.314 J/molK)
T = absolute temperature (K) Chapter 5  20 Activation Energy for Diffusion Qd is the height of
the energy barrier
atoms need to scale
to make a jump…
and thus diffuse Qd

Chapter 5  24 NonsteadyState Diffusion
Most practical cases…nonsteadystate diffusion:
Flux and conc. gradient changing with time
Implies net accumulation or depletion of diffusing species Chapter 5  25 NonSteady State Diffusion
• Concentration C of diffusing species is a function of
both time and position, i.e. C = C(x,t)
• Fick’s first law no longer applicable..
• Now use Fick’s Second Law:

• The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics
in the Natural Sciences (Eugene Wigner)
“It is difficult to avoid the impression that a miracle
confronts us here, quite comparable in its striking
nature to the miracle that the human mind can string a
thousand arguments together without getting itself into
contradictions, or to the two miracles of the existence of
laws of nature and of the human mind’s capacity to
divine them.”

Here is what the critics said about it:
Amazing equation!; Very powerful!; Never seen anything like it!
And to think such a complex phenomenon like nonsteadystate
diffusion could be captured so easily. A must use…
Chapter 5  33 EMVISI
1) Temperature: Q. Does higher T lead to higher or lower D?
A. Higher D…
2) Diffusion Mechanism:
Interstitial diffusion is much faster than vacancy diffusion
3) Activation Energy:
High Qd = ????
Ans. = low D
Qd determined by diffusing species and host:
Small diffusing species, open structure leads to
low Qd or high Qd ?
which leads to low D or high D?
Large diffusing species, closepacked structure leads to:
low Qd or high Qd ?
which leads to a low D or high D? *Even More Very Important Slide Indeed! Chapter 5  34 NonsteadyState Diffusion
• Example Problem: An FCC ironcarbon alloy initially
containing 0.20 wt.% C is carburized at an elevated
temperature and in an atmosphere that gives a surface
carbon concentration constant at 1.0 wt.%. If after 49.5
h the concentration of carbon is 0.35 wt.% at a position
4.0 mm below the surface, determine the temperature
at which the treatment was carried out.

2 Dt erf(z) = 0.8125 Chapter 5  37 Solution (cont.):
We now determine, from Table 5.1 (p.116), the value of z for which
the error function is = 0.8125. A linear interpolation is necessary, as
follows:
z erf(z) 0.90
z
0.95 0.7970

0.8209 Now solving for D x2 z 0.90

Chapter 5  38 Solution (cont.):
• Now, to solve for the temperature T at
which D has the above value, we use
a rearranged form of Equation (5.9a): Qd
T=
R(lnDo lnD ) from Table 5.2 (p.119), for the diffusion of C in FCC Fe
Do = 2.3 x 105 m2/s Qd = 148,000 J/mol
T= 148,000 J/mol
(8.314 J/mol  K)(ln 2.3 x10 5 m2 /s ln 2.6 x10 11 m2 /s) T = 1300 K = 1027 °C
