What does Fick’s first law describe? Fick’s First Law states that flux is proportional to the CONCENTRATION GRADIENT, and the proportionality constant D is the DIFFUSION COEFFICIENT.
What is Fick’s 2nd law of diffusion? Fick’s 2nd law of diffusion describes the rate of accumulation (or depletion) of concentration within the volume as proportional to the local curvature of the concentration gradient.
What does Fick’s law measure? Measurement of Cardiac Output
The Fick principle states that uptake or release of a substance by any organ is the product of the arteriovenous concentration difference of the substance and the blood flow to that organ.
What are the 3 variables in the numerator of Fick’s law of diffusion? Fick’s Law essentially states that the rate of diffusion of a gas across a permeable membrane is determined by the chemical nature of the membrane itself, the surface area of the membrane, the partial pressure gradient of the gas across the membrane, and the thickness of the membrane.
