current density

The current density j B of a species B in a given point of the solution is obtained by multiplying the flux density of that species at the given point by the Faraday constantF and by the charge numberz B of the species:
j B = z B F N B
where j B is a vector which indicates the direction in which the charges transported by the species B flow and which gives the number of these charges going through a plane oriented perpendicular to the vector, divided by time and by area, and N B is the flux density of a minor constituent of the solution with respect to a fixed frame of reference.
