The following data is given and I am asked to calculate the rate of effusion The data given;

depth/thickness (t)

Surface area (A)

diffusion coefficient (D)

Can someone help me out? The only law related is the Graham's Law but it compares two gases.

Thanks

**drwls**, Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 8:22amI dont understand the question. Diffusion involves two gases, and you have not said what they are. Effusion is the rate that molecules flow through a hole that is smaller then the mean free path. I don't see how a depth would be involved. For effusion equations, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effusion

The characteristic distance than a gas can diffuse into another gas in time t is sqrt(pi*D*t)

D is inversely proportional to pressure.

**Sam**, Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 8:38amIts a balloon filled with the nitrogen gas balloon and its about the flow of nitrogen through a hole.

The thickness of the balloon, total surface area and the diffusion coefficient is given.

I am bit confused about the problem as well.
