Chapter 1. Introduction to Modeling of Mass Transfer Processes
After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Explain the role of modeling of mass transfer processes in a variety of diverse fields.
Understand the steps needed in modeling of a given system or equipment involving mass transfer.
Define control volume and mark its bounding control surface.
Write a species conservation law (mass balance) first in words and then as a mathematical equation for the chosen control volume.
Distinguish three hierarchical levels of models—that is, differential, macroscopic, and mesoscopic models—depending on the size of the control volume chosen.
Identify the closure relations needed in addition to species mass balance to complete ...
