The left compartment contains 5200 molecules, and the right compartment contains 5000 molecules. If the molecules can only move randomly to the left or to the right, approximately half of all molecules would move to the right and approximately half would move to the left. This means that, on average, roughly 2600 would leave the left side and enter the right side, whereas 2500 would leave the right and enter the left. A [1] ⌬C ⌬x [2] The proportionality constant, D, is referred to as the diffusion coefficient or diffusion constant.

The diffusion equation now takes the form J ϭϪ D dC dx [3] This equation is also known as Fick’s First Law of Diffusion. It is named after Adolf Fick, a German physician who first analyzed this problem in 1855. To complete the discussion of Fick’s First Law, we should examine the dimensions (or units) associated with each parameter appearing in Equation [3]. Because flux, J, is the quantity of molecules passing through unit area per unit time, it has the dimensions of “moles per square centimeter per second” (5 [mol/cm2]/sec 5 mol·cm–2·sec–1).

With a little bit of mathematics, we can improve our understanding of relative permeabilities and better appreciate what is meant when something is called permeant or impermeant. Recall that the permeability coefficient, P, has dimensions of cm/second. That is, the concept of time (and thus rate) is somehow embodied in the description of permeability presented in the text. We now make this connection explicit. Text Equation [10] stated that the flux (J) of molecules across a cell membrane is driven by the concentration difference of that molecule between the inside and the outside: J 52P(Ci2Co)52PDC [B1] When the membrane is permeable to a particular species, for that species, any concentration difference between inside and outside cannot persist.
