Inter-arrival time against number of molecules for diffusion model 2 Inter-arrival times for diffusion model 2 where the potential gradient is considered. We assume a constant potential gradient of 60mV for the molecules to overcome for diffusion to take place. The inter-arrival times are higher than the first model because the molecules have to overcome the potential gradient as well in order to diffuse. Here, the exponential increase in the inter-arrival times can be observed more clearly. This scenario is best depicted by the curve for concentration 10–9moles where the results are generated for a large number of molecules diffusing out.
