Transport phenomenon is central for understanding many procedures in numerous sciences, transport phenomena can be described by the partial differential equation. Forward Time Centered Space scheme give ample numerical solutions of the transport equation.  In this paper, we apply Forward Time Centered Space scheme to solve a non-trivial transport problem using different step sizes of time (t) and space (x). We use MATLAB software to get the numerical results. The numerical simulation presents that the FTCS scheme is more stable and closer to the exact solution when we decrease step sizes of t, x, and α more and more.
