### Diffusion

(the spreading of particles toward an even distribution)

**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, a type of diffusion termed
**Fickian Diffusion**. The equation:

dC
J = -D ——
dx

- J - the
**Diffusive Flux**, the flow of the diffusing substance as substance/time.
- D - the
**Diffusion Coefficient** (i.e., **Diffusivity**) of the substance.
- C - the concentration of the substance.
- x - measurement over a direction over which we are describing the diffusion.
