After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Understand the definition of local versus average mass transfer coefficient.
Define the key dimensionless groups in convective transport.
Use common correlations for internal flows and external flows.
Evaluate mass transfer rate into a liquid flowing as a film.
Calculate the mass transfer rate from a solid sphere and from a gas bubble to a fluid.
State and use common correlations for the mass transfer coefficient for some industrial process equipment.
The mass transfer coefficient is an important parameter to calculate the contribution from flow to interfacial mass transfer, and is a key parameter needed to close macroscopic ...
