 June 23, 2002, 02:18 Diffusion Equation #1 izardy amiruddin Guest   Posts: n/a hi ! i have some doubt about the following equations and what is the relation amongst these equations : 1. Heat Equation 2. Diffusion Equation 3. Stoke's Problem (it is not Stoke Equation nor Stoke Theorem ) 4. Fick's First and Second Law All the equations state above have the same dimension and quite similar , quite confuse here . and what is the relation between these equation and Poisson's Equation . i've read some book and found that Poisson's Equation is used to model these equation and other several equation . I need some brief explanation here . Thanks
