EVAPORATION??!!!
 
Hi. This is my last hope here. Do any body knows relations are equations for evaporation from liquid surface because of side-wall heat flux on the container(cylindrical) walls. the liquid and the vapor(gas) above the liquid are both of same fluid : HYDROGEN that is it single fluid, two-phase prob. with evap.

awaitng for a least response prasanth

Hi,

Do you want to know the mass transfer rate equation?.

Re: EVAPORATION??!!!
 
yeah for that single fluid, evaporation of liquid into its vapor. saturation temp dependent on vapor pressure. thanks and regards prasanth

Hi,

Generally mass transfer rate due to evaporation is D*M/R*(Pv/Tg - Pv_sat/Tb)/delta.

D:Diffusion coeff(m2/s)

M:Molecular Weight of vapor(kg/mol)

R:Gas constant(J/kmol)

Pv:Partial pressure of vapor at a wall adjacent cell.

Tg:Temperature at a wall adjacent cell.

Pv_sat:Stauration pressure of vapor(constant or a function of temperature)

Tb:Temperature at a wall

delta:cell hight.

Thank you
