Hi all:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now I have a question about the concept of diffusion coefficient in two cases: the diffusion equation (J=DdT/dx) and the random walk (tao^2=6Dt). My quesion is the two D in two equations are the same or different. If they are different, is there any relationship between them?
