Hallo everyone, I have a 1D diffusion equation with decay as dA/dt = d2A/dx2L*A with initial condition A(x,t=0)=A0= K*exp(ax), K= constant, and boundary condition= DdA/dx = b(constant) (t > 0) where L= decay constant A = certain concentration D = diffusion coefficient One can solve the above equation for equilibrium putting dA/dt=0. The equilibrium concentration can be reached in time t. How can I determine the time that it takes to reach equilibrium concentration? Thank you help would be greatly appriciated
