 June 14, 2001, 20:51 about two fraction units #1 appleyy Guest   Posts: n/a hi,I have a question:in my diffusion model,when I have done the iteration,I want to see some cocentration of each species,but when I use two different units of mass fraction and mole fraction,the solutions are the same(the numbers in each nodes in mass fraction are the same as those in mole fraction).I do not know the reason,are these two units same? thank for your help

 June 16, 2001, 02:27 Re: about two fraction units #2 Jin-Wook LEE Guest   Posts: n/a No. Mole fraction is volume fraction. If the molecular weights of two species are the same, then mole fraction and mass fraction are the same. Anyway, the trend(pattern) of mole fraction and mass fraction is always the same. The difference is only absolute value. Sincerely, Jinwook

 June 18, 2001, 05:54 Re: about two fraction units #4 Jin-Wook LEE Guest   Posts: n/a If molecular weights of two species are the same, absolute values of mass fraction and mole fraction, as well as the trend, should be the same. Otherwise(if molecular weights are not the same), it is, as far as my experience, impossible solution and I never think such situation occur Fluent's simulation result. It's only post processing. Sincerely, Jinwook
