• Consider two species, x and o
• Concentration of “x” is larger on the left, of “o” is larger on the right
• Species diffuse through each other
•
•
•
•
they move from regions of high to low concentrations
Think of perfume in a room
Mass flux is driven by concentration difference
Analogously, heat transfer is driven by temperature differences
• There may also be bulk motion of the mixture (advection, like wind)
• Total rate of mass flux:

Problem 3.9
• Consider liquid n-hexane in a 50-mm-diameter graduated cylinder.
Air blows across the top of the cylinder. The distance from the liquidair interface to the open end of the cylinder is 20 cm. Assume the
diffusivity of n-hexane is 8.8x10-6 m2/s. The liquid n-hexane is at 25C.
Estimate the evaporation rate of the n-hexane. (Hint: review the
Clausius-Clapeyron relation a applied in Example 3.1)
