Mathematical Formulation of the Diffusion Release Model A spherical granule of radius r , coated with a homogenous material of constant thickness l, is assumed. The release starts at the end of the lag period, t , when the granule’s internal voids are filled with water: w(t ) = ␥␳ w V (9) where w(t ) is the mass of water in the granule, ␳ w is the water density, ␥ is the volume fraction of voids in the coated granule, and V = 43 ␲r 3 is the granule 26 AVI SHAVIV volume. The rate of water uptake is given by the following equation: Ph dw(t) = A␳ w P, dt l 0≤t ≤t, (10) where Ph is water permeability of the membrane (cm2 day−1 Pa−1 ), A = 4␲r 2 is the granule surface area (cm2 ), l is coating thickness (cm), and P is the vapor pressure difference between water and a saturated urea solution (Pa).
