Diffusion Coefficients of Gases in Water

Diffusion flux [kg/m2s] tells how fast a substanse solved in another substance flows due to concentration gradients. Diffusion constants [m2/s] are given for several gases in water

Fick's first law states that a substance will flow from region with high concentration to a region of low concentration. Fick's law can be expressed as

J = -D*dφ/dx                     [1]

where
J = diffusion flux - the amount of substance that flows through an unit area per unit time [mass or mol /(m2 s)]
D = diffusion coefficient [m2/s]
dφ = change in concentration of substance [mass or mol/m3]
dx = change in length [m]

For simple one-dimensional transport, the diffusion coefficient describes the time–rate of change of concentration. The diffusion coefficient varies from substance to substance and with temperature.

Diffusion coefficients for some common gases in water:
(Gas–liquid diffusion coefficients are difficult to measure, and since the values below are from different sources and different measuring methods, there is some uncertainty about the values)
