volume concentration
I have some queation using CFX.
Dispersion problem.
rectangle box.
initial condition : air in rectangle box
boundary condition : inlet(Hydrogen mass flow), openning

1. I can not fine volume concentration in CFX-post.
(just mass concentration, mass fraction)

2. How conversion to volume concentration.

You can calculate it from the mass fraction and molar masses of the components. I will leave the derivation of the equation up to you from there.

Thank you for your comment.
But I don't know conversion equation.

I need to Hydrogen Volume Concentration (Vol %).
(Time series value on sensor(points))

Hydrogen density : 0.09
Air density : 1.205

If the sample is a mixture containing N components, the molar volume is calculated using ~~~/

what is the Xi?

if V is m3/mol and M is mol what could possibly x_i be?
It is Mass_i/Total_Mass (MassFraction), and if you sum up over i components you end up in a weighted Molar Mass. This divided by the weighted Density of the Mixture is the Molar Volume.



P.S.: next time iŽll find the Latex button in the beginning. ;)
