Mass Transfer Coefficient

on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

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


Mass Transfer Coefficient formula

\(\large{ K = \frac {\dot {m}_t }{A \; \Delta F_c}   }\)  
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ K }\) = mass transfer coefficient \(\large{dimensionless}\)  
\(\large{ \Delta F_c }\) = driving force concentration differential \(\large{lbf}\) \(\large{N}\)
\(\large{ A }\) = effective mass transfer area \(\large{ft^2}\) \(\large{m^2}\)
\(\large{ \dot {m}_t }\) = mass transfer rate \(\large{\frac{lbm}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{kg}{s}}\)
