Lewis Number
Lewis number, abbreviated as Le, is a dimensionless number which is the ratio of thermal diffusivity to mass diffusivity. It is used to characterize fluid flows where there is simultaneous heat and mass transfer. Some common values of nonmetallic thermal diffusivity values can be found here.
