Transp Phenom Nano Micro Scales (TPNMS)
By random diffusion of molecules there is an exchange of molecules in the z -direction. Hence the x-directed momentum has been transferred in the z-direction from the faster- to the slower-moving layer. The equation for momentum transport is Newton's Law of Viscosity written as follows:. Newton's Law is the simplest relationship between the flux of momentum and the velocity gradient.

When a system contains two or more components whose concentration vary from point to point, there is a natural tendency for mass to be transferred, minimizing any concentration difference within the system. Mass Transfer in a system is governed by Fick's First Law : 'Diffusion flux from higher concentration to lower concentration is proportional to the gradient of the concentration of the substance and the diffusivity of the substance in the medium.
Some of them are: . All processes in engineering involve the transfer of energy. Some examples are the heating and cooling of process streams, phase changes, distillations, etc. The basic principle is the first law of thermodynamics which is expressed as follows for a static system:. The net flux of energy through a system equals the conductivity times the rate of change of temperature with respect to position. For other systems that involve either turbulent flow, complex geometries or difficult boundary conditions another equation would be easier to use:.
Forced convection can occur in both laminar and turbulent flow.
In the situation of laminar flow in circular tubes, several dimensionless numbers are used such as Nusselt number, Reynolds number, and Prandtl. The commonly used equation is:. Natural or free convection is a function of Grashof and Prandtl numbers.
The complexities of free convection heat transfer make it necessary to mainly use empirical relations from experimental data. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
