InterPhasechangeFoam source terms
i am trying to simulate mass tranfer for a gas bubble dissolving in liquid.
could anybody please throw some light on the terms Su and Sp in interphasechangefoam. regarding the following points.

1. is it necessary to include Sp term in continuity equation.
isn't it enough to include it only continuity equation of alpha.
2. what is the physical significance of Su.??
3. are they both active only in the interfacial region??
pls reply
thanks in advance.
