1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

On flat, leaned, surfaces, there are channels (rillenkarren), which are made by dissolution by rainwater ( - not very important). They are 2-3 cm wide and around 0.5 m long. The formation is not yet known.

Calculate how the concentration of calcium carbonate changes in the flow of the
rainwater while it slides in a narrow layer on the stone.

The homework is a part of basic mathematical physics course. So many simplifications have to be made and all the approximations have to be taken into account.
Partial differential equation don't count.
