This textbook provides a clear and complete description of diffusion in fluids, the spontaneous mixing of different states that is fundamental in chemical engineering, chemistry and biology. Earlier textbooks on diffusion have given the subject a reputation for being difficult and have appealed most to students with a background in engineering and mathematics. Dr Cussler's informal style will appeal to all students. He includes numerous simple examples and some numerical exercises that emphasize and apply basic concepts in great detail. The book assumes no prior knowledge of other phenomena and will be a valuable introduction for students of chemistry and biology as well as engineering.
