Mass Transfer Coefficient

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Mass transfer coefficient, abbreviated as K, is a porportional constant to the difference in the concentrations and the rate of mass transfer.


Mass Transfer Coefficient formulas

\(\large{ K = \frac {\dot {m}_t }{A \; \Delta F_c}   }\)   
\(\large{ K = \frac { Sh \; D}    {l_c} }\)  (Sherwood number


\(\large{ K }\) = mass transfer coefficient

\(\large{ l_c }\) = characteristic length

\(\large{ D }\) = diffusion coefficient

\(\large{ \Delta F_c }\) = driving force concentration differential

\(\large{ A }\) = effective mass transfer area

\(\large{ \dot {m}_t }\) = mass transfer rate

\(\large{ Sh }\) = Sherwood number
