Bodenstein Number

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Bodenstein number is a dimensionless number used in mass transfer and diffusion in reactors calculations in particular.

FORMULA

\(Bo = \frac {VL}  {D_a} \)

Where:

\(Bo\) = Bodenstein number

\(V\) = velocity

\(L\) = reaction length

\(D_a\) = effective axial diffusivity
