Homework Help: Calculate the Net flux

  1. Aug 22, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the net flux (moles m^2- s^-1) of glucose molecules across a distance of 1um if the concentration difference is 100 mols m^3- and the diffusion coefficient for water is 5x10^-10 m^2 s^-1
    2. Relevant equations

    so i used J=D(c1-c2)/DelaX
    3. The attempt at a solution
    I chucked the value into the equation and found out that I got 0.05 mol2 m^-2 s^-1, am i right?

    Correct, although it's mol, not mol2.
