    Diffusion as a probability for a random walk - please see the attached question.

    No big derivation is required and this may be able to be answered in just a few lines.

    The main point is to show the probability of hopping using only the values given at the bottom of the attached pdf.

    Please see the attached file for the complete solution.

    Our model of diffusion in one dimension consists of a grid with N slots (N is assumed to be large), each containing a finite number of particles, each slot labeled with an index k running from 1 to N. The spacing of the slots is (please see the attached file) which is assumed to be small. After each small time interval a particle has a small probability p of jumping from slot k to slot The grid contains (please see the attached file) particles in slot k at time interval l. From this ...

    Solution Summary

    In this solution we derive the one-dimensional diffusion equation using basic properties of a random walk. Response includes Microsoft Word attachment.
