eed two boundary conditions to solve C quation for integration constants, Need two boundary conditions to solve C A equation for integration constants, a and b Diffusion is occurring at the outer surface of the sphere, at the semi-infinite Region, r R. At r=R - , C = C sa t . This is inside the sphere, not the domain g, , A A,sat p, In which diffusion is occuring. Need the concentration at r=R +, where p A = P A, sat . Need concentration in terms of molar units, so use ideal gas law. + = = = R r at , R C RT sat A p A C B.C.1 B.C.2 = = r at 0 A C Solving for integration constants, b=0, a=-RC R R r R C A C
