Dear all,

I am meeting with a problem, that is how to establish thediffusion equationfor the transport of tracer in avertical porous plane, in which we inject tracer at the bottom (I) and produce at the top (P) of plane. (see the figure)

The plane is initially saturated by water. Then we inject dye tracer at I, tracer step by step moves from bottom to the top under gravity effect and produce at P. But, I don't know how can we treat the gravity in the diffusion equation??

dC/dt + u.dC/dx = D.d2C/dx2

Looking forward to helping from all of you.

Thank you in advance!!
