**2-1: Diffusion Coefficient for Air-Water Vapor Mixtures
**

Heat and mass transfer applications involving air-water vapor mixtures can often provide significantly higher energy transfer rates than ‘dry’ heat exchange processes; therefore, the diffusion coefficient for water vapor in air is an important quantity in many engineering applications. a.) Calculate and plot the diffusion coefficient for water vapor in air as a function of temperature at atmospheric pressure. The solution to this problem is a straightforward application of the method discussed in Section 9.2.2.1. The input parameters are entered in EES:

"EXAMPLE 9.2-1: Diffusion Coefficient for Air-Water Vapor Mixtures" $UnitSystem SI MASS RAD PA K J $Tabstops 0.2 0.4 0.6 3.5 in p=1 [atm]*convert(atm,Pa) T_C=20 [C] T=converttemp(C,K,T_C) G1$='Air' G2$='Water' "pressure" "temperature, in C" "temperature in K" "species 1" "species 2"

The Lennard-Jones 12-6 characteristic energies normalized by Boltzmann's constant are obtained for both species ( ε1 / k B and ε 2 / k B ) using the ek_LJ function in EES and used to estimate the normalized characteristic energy of the mixture according to Eq. (9-28):

**The dimensionless temperature is computed according to Eq. (9-27):

and used to estimate the dimensionless collision integral for diffusion using Eq. (9-30):

The D_12_gas function can be accessed by selecting Function Info from the Options menu and selecting EES library routines.2. Also shown in Figure 1 are reference values for the diffusion coefficient of water vapor in air.2 = 1. scroll down to the Diffusion library and click on it to open the library and display the functions that are contained in the library.
