Sherwood Number

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Sherwood number, abbreviated as Sh, a dimensionless number, s the ratio between convective mass transfer and diffusive mass transfer.


Sherwood Number formula

\(\large{ Sh = \frac { K \; l_c}    {D}  }\)   


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

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

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

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