Entropy Production in a Model Biological System with Facilitated Diffusion
Keywords:entropy production, facilitated diffusion, biological system, ideal solution, osmotic boundary conditions
Expressions for the calculation of the diffusion flow and the entropy production in a model biological system, an ideal binary solution in a plane-parallel layer under osmotic boundary conditions and the facilitated diffusion, have been derived in the framework of the linear thermodynamics of irreversible processes. It is shown that the consistent consideration of the dependence of the diffusion coefficient on the field variables leads to a substantial difference of the values obtained for the substance flow and the entropy production in biological systems from the values obtained in the framework of standard approach with a constant diffusion coefficient.
