1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A cell contains a solute at a concentration of Ct and the concentration of the same substance outside the cell is a constant, k. By Fick's law, if ct and k are unequal, solute moves across the cell wall at a rate proportional to the difference between ct and k, towards the region of lower concentration. a) Write down the differential equation that is satisfied by ct. b) solve the differential equation for ct, with the initial condition C0 > A c) Sketch the solution for A > k and k> A 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I got as far as dS/dt = M (Ct - k) (M is a constant) I then got Be^(mt) = Ct - K. I don't think I understand differential equations because this is supposed to be very simple. Thank you everyone!!! P.S This is maths for biology students.
