(a) Certain alloys such as LaNi5 can store hydrogen at room temperature. A plate of LaNi5 containing no hydrogen is placed in a chamber filled with pure hydrogen and maintained at a constant pressure. At what depth from the surface will the concentration of hydrogen be 1/2 the surface concentration after 1 hour? Assume the diffusivity of hydrogen in the alloy is 3.091×10−6 cm2/s. Use the approximation erf(x)≅x for 0<x<0.6 if appropriate.
