Diffussion controlled electrolysis

Diffussion controlled electrolysis proceeds on (a) planar and (b) spherical electrode under the conditions: n = 1, C = 1 mM, A= 0.04 cm^2, D = 1.5x10^-5 cm^2/s.

Calculate the current (i) in both cases at t = 0.5, 1, 3, 10 sec.

How long can the electrolysis proceeed before the current at the spherical electrode exceeds that at the planar electrode by 10%?
