Solve the diffusion equation from this differential equation (Fick's Second Law). Note that there are two different independent variables t (time) and x (distance).

$\displaystyle \frac {\partial c}{\partial t} = D \frac {\partial ^2 c}{\partial x^2} $

With these boundary conditions:

$\displaystyle c(x, t) = \begin{cases} 0, & \mbox{for } 0 < x < \infty; t = 0 \\ 0, & \mbox{for } x \to -\infty \\ 0, & \mbox{for } x \to +\infty \\ c_0, & \mbox{for } x = 0 ; t > 0 \\ \end{cases}$

The professor said to use Laplace Transform. I'm familiar with Laplace transforms and initial value problems, but I'm not sure how to use them here since there are two independent variables and there seems to be a missing limit condition:

$\displaystyle \frac {\partial c}{\partial x}(x=0)$

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
