Bodenstein Number

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Bodenstein number is a dimensionless number, abbreviated as Bo which is used in mass transfer and diffusion in reactors calculations in particular. The equations to calculate the Bodenstein Number are below.

\(\large{ Bo = \frac {vl}  {D_a} }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ Bo }\) = Bodenstein number

\(\large{ D_a }\) = effective axial diffusivity

\(\large{ l }\) = reaction length

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity
