In this model we calculate the one dimensional diffusion across a region with a single rate of diffusion, D. On the left hand side the concentration is held constant (mixed, large reservoir) and at the right hand side is set at 0 mM at t=0 in VolR, the recipient mixing chamber. The partition coefficient, lambda, is the ratio of the concentration immediately inside the slab or region of diffusion to that immediately outside the region. It has been set to 0.9 in the example. This model serves as the basis for all the other slab diffusion model in which the diffusion domain may have heterogeneities in thickness, in internal binding, in paths through cells and around them.
