== Derivation <sup>[3]</sup>==
For a one dimensional system as described in '''Figure 1''', with a specie concentration, <math>C</math> following relations can be made to relate flux in, <math>J_{in}</math> , flux out,<math>J_{out}</math> and control volume <math>V</math>. From this system, the Péclet number can be derived.
