Term Project: Pioneers in Diffusion

Thomas Garaham and Adolf Fick carried out several experiments to develop an equation for molecular diffusion and the attached pdf outlines their work. However Fick’s experimental findings with variable area (i.e. experiment in a funnel) sketched in two different books in different forms. Starting from first principles determine which one is the correct one. State any assumptions that you make and use MATLAB for calculations and graphs.
