Question

1. Estimate the flux (mg/cm^2/s) by diffusion of a hydrophobic anti-cancer drug through a lipid bilayer membrane.

(Assume the diffusion coefficient for steroid in the lipid bilayer is 2x10-6 cm2 /s, and that the concentration is 2 ng/mL on the outside of the membrane and 0 on the inside)
