Definition :

Movement of individual molecules through a substance by virtue of their thermal

energy is termed as molecular diffusion.

What does molecular diffusion leads to?

The molecular diffusion leads to a completely uniform concentration of substance

through out a solution which may initially have been non-uniform.

Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases:

This theory gives better understanding of molecular diffusion in gases. Ideal gas

law tells us how ideal gases behaves, but not explain us why it behaves in that

way. The molecular basis of this law is provided by the kinetic-theory of gases.

According to this Theory,

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

(iv)

random motion

These molecules are very small so volume of all molecules is negligible

(In equation PV=nRT we consider only bulk volume of ideal gas)

Energy can be transferred between the molecules during their collisions.

This energy is in form of kinetic energy due to motion of molecules.

1

mv 2 , is function of Temperature.

2

v= velocity of individual molecule, m= mass of molecule

Average Kinetic energy of a given molecules = =

1

mu 2

2

3RT

Mw

As Temperature increases, average kinetic energy of molecules will

increase so molecules movement is more which results in more diffusion.

Thus, mass transfer of species from higher concentration to lower concentration is

accomplished by the actual migration of molecules.

Classification of Diffusion:

(i) Laminar Diffusion or Simple molecular diffusion:

Diffusion takes place without any external force. It is very slow process .

Ex. Diffusion of NaCl solution in Water without agitation.

(ii)

Diffusion takes place with any external force. It is very fast process .

Ex. Diffusion of NaCl solution in Water with agitation.

Rate of Diffusion: Rate of diffusion is expressed in terms of Molar Flux.

Molar Flux =

MolarRateofDiffusion

unitArea unitTime

(i)N-type It is a local flux of A

(ii)J-type It is an Average flux of A

Ficks Law: Steady State Rate of molecular diffusion:

Molar Flux = (Constant) (Concentration Gradient)

C A

J A D AB

___________ [A]

Z

Where, JA =Average flux of A with respect to all other components.(Kmol/m2 sec)

DAB = Diffusivity of A in B (m2/sec)

C A

=Concentration gradient of A in z- direction.

Z

Negative (-ve) sign indicates that diffusion occurs in the direction of drop in

concentration

Diffusivity: Is ratio of molar flux to concentration gradient.

DAB = F (Temperature, Pressure, concentration, physical state of the substance,

nature of the constitutes)

STEADY STATE DIFFUSION IN FLUIDS AT REST & LAMINAR FLOW

Assumptions :

Steady state diffusion i.e. NA, NB constant, CA, CB and C do not change with

time

Isothermal condition. DAB constant

Total concentration C = CA +CB constant mole/liter i.e. No reaction

Concentration gradients in other directions (except Z) are zero.
