Question: we diffuse hydrogen through a palladium sheet with a width...

Question details

We diffuse hydrogen through a palladium sheet with a width of 0.0050 cm (note that the length of the sheet is much bigger than the width). On one side, we maintain a pressure of 96000 Pa and a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. On the other side, we maintain a high vaccum. After 24 hours, the hydrogen volume decreased of 14.1 cm3. If the surface of the palladium sheet is 0.743 cm2, what is the diffusion coefficient of the hydrogen in the palladium?
