calc
The Levich equation models the diffusion and solution flow conditions around a rotating disc electrode. This calc uses it to find the diffusion coefficient of a redox probe.

notes
Typically a Levich plot would be constructed to ensure that the system behaves correctly and to gain better accuracy, but this calc allows a one-point rough calculation. The calc is particularly useful since it allows the entering of inputs in convenient units, when confusing units and their conversion often causes errors in electrochemical calculations.
