7.5A. Different Types of Fluxes and Fick's Law
In Section 6.2B the flux was defined as the molar flux of A in kg mol A/s · m2 relative to the molar average velocity νM of the whole or bulk stream. Also, NA was defined as the molar flux of A relative to stationary coordinates. Fluxes and velocities can also be defined in other ways. Table 7.5-1 lists the different types of fluxes and velocities often used in binary systems.
|Mass Flux (kg A/s · m2)||Molar Flux (kg mol A/s · m2)|
|Relative to fixed coordinates||nA = ρ|
