Consider the distribution of an ion of valence z in a 1D potential field φ(y). Derive the Einstein relation
Consider the 1D ion flux equation for a chemical species i:
and show that the normalized flux ji∕ci is proportional to the spatial gradient of the electrochemical potential
gi = gi∘+RT ln +ziFφ.
