ABSTRACT

Some confusion exists in the literature between different nomenclatures and units related to the equations of chemical potential, Einstein's relation, mobility, Fick's laws, and stress-assisted diffusion. Moreover, sometimes these concepts are simplified and important parameters are overlooked in textbooks, thus providing students with insufficient knowledge. This paper is aimed at gathering the most important equations, nomenclature and units in a systematic way. A critical discussion is made on the issues that tend to introduce confusion.

Keywords:: Potential parameters; Kinetic parameters; Diffusion; Effects of stress
