The image above represents non steady state diffusion. To calculate non steady state diffusion, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Distance of Diffusion (x), Diffusion Coefficient (D)Â **andÂ **Time for Diffusion (t).**

**The formula for calculating non steady state diffusion:**

J_{n}Â =Â ^{xÂ²}/_{Dt}

Where:

J_{n}Â = Non Steady State Diffusion

x = Distance of Diffusion

D = Diffusion Coefficient

t = Time for Diffusion

Given an example;

Find the non steady state diffusion when the distance of diffusion is 8, the diffusion coefficient is 10 and the time for diffusion is 12.

This implies that;

x = Distance of Diffusion = 8

D = Diffusion Coefficient = 10

t = Time for Diffusion = 12

J_{n}Â =Â ^{xÂ²}/_{Dt}

J_{n}Â =Â ^{(8)Â²}/_{(10)(12)}

So, J_{n}Â =Â ^{(64)}/_{(120)}

J_{n} = 0.53

Therefore, theÂ **non steady state diffusionÂ **isÂ **0.53 mol m ^{-2}Â s^{-1}.**

**Calculating the Distance of Diffusion when the Non Steady State Diffusion, the Diffusion Coefficient and the Time for Diffusion are Given**

x = âˆšJ_{n} x Dt

Where:

x = Distance of Diffusion

J_{n}Â = Non Steady State Diffusion

D = Diffusion Coefficient

t = Time for Diffusion

Let’s solve an example;

Find the distance of diffusion when the non steady state diffusion is 10, the diffusion coefficient is 5 and the time for diffusion is 6.

This implies that;

J_{n} = Non Steady State Diffusion = 10

D = Diffusion Coefficient = 5

t = Time for Diffusion = 6

x = âˆšJ_{n} x Dt

x = âˆš10 x (5)(6)

That is, x = âˆš10 x 30

x = âˆš40

x = 6.32

Therefore, the **distance of diffusionÂ **isÂ **6.32.**

**Calculating the Diffusion Coefficient when the Non Steady State Diffusion, the Distance of Diffusion and the Time for Diffusion are Given**

D = ^{x2} / _{Jn x t}

Where:

D = Diffusion Coefficient

J_{n}Â = Non Steady State Diffusion

x = Distance of Diffusion

t = Time for Diffusion

Let’s solve an example;

Given that, the non steady state diffusion is 6, the distance of diffusion is 8 and the time for diffusion is 2.

This implies that;

J_{n} = Non Steady State Diffusion = 6

x = Distance of Diffusion = 8

t = Time for Diffusion = 2

D = ^{x2} / _{Jn x t}

Then, D = ^{82} / _{6 x 2}

D = ^{64} / _{12}

D = 5.33

Therefore, theÂ **diffusion coefficientÂ **isÂ **5.33.**

**Calculating the Time for Diffusion when the Non Steady State Diffusion, the Distance of Diffusion and the Diffusion Coefficient are Given**

t = ^{x2} / _{Jn x D}

Where:

t = Time for Diffusion

J_{n}Â = Non Steady State Diffusion

x = Distance of Diffusion

D = Diffusion Coefficient

Given an example;

Find the time for diffusion when the non steady state diffusion is 2, the distance of diffusion is 4 and the diffusion coefficient is 3.

This implies that;

J_{n} = Non Steady State Diffusion = 2

x = Distance of Diffusion = 4

D = Diffusion Coefficient = 3

t = ^{x2} / _{Jn x D}

t = ^{42} / _{2 x 3}

So, t = ^{16} / _{6}

t = 2.67

Therefore, theÂ **time for diffusionÂ **isÂ **2.67s.**
