Diffusion is the net movement of particles such as atoms or molecules from areas of higher concentration to areas of lower concentration. A Diffusion Equation is an equation describing diffusion over time. Fick's Laws include a diffusion equation describing what happens in many cases. That type of diffusion is called Fickian Diffusion, and the equation is: dC J = -D —— dx
