This temperature difference is thought of as a driving force that causes heat to flow. The concepts of heat transfer and temperature, the key words in the discipline of heat transfer, are 2 of the most basic concepts of thermodynamics.

System: a region in space containing a quantity of matter which is separated from its surroundings by a boundary. Closed system (no – flow system): no exchange of matter with the surroundings, only heat and work cross the boundary. Open system (flow system): there is matter exchange with the surroundings in addition to heat and work. Work (W): is a transient quantity (energy) which only appears at the boundary when a system changes its state due to the movement of a part of the boundary under the action of a force. Sign convention: system + the work is done by the system on the surroundings: the work exits the

the work is done on the system by the surroundings.
(Although there cannot be said to be any work in a system either before or after the change has taken place, work may be said to “flow” or be “transferred” across the boundary.) Heat (Q): is “something” (energy transfer), which only appears at the boundary when a system changes its state due to a difference in temperature between the system and its surrounding. Heat, like work, is a transient quantity, which only appears at a boundary while a change is taking place within the system. (Although there cannot be said to be any heat in a system before and after a change of state, loosely speaking heat may be said to “flow” or be “transferred” across the boundary. Strictly speaking it is energy which is transferred, but to say “heat is transferred” is a shorthand way of saying “the energy transferred by virtue of a temperature difference.”) Sigh convention: + if heat flows into a system from the surroundings: If heat flows from the system to the surroundings.
1.1 First Law of Thermodynamics It is the principle of conservation of energy. It is an axiom. The first law of thermodynamics says that there exists a property of a closed system (U) such that a change in its value is equal to the difference between the heat supplied and the work done during any change of state:

X δQ @ δW =U 2 @U 1

where U is the internal energy, J
Writing Q and W for the quantities of heat and work crossing the boundary during the change of non heat energy equation state: QW=U2U1 By words: any quantity of heat supplied to a closed system must equal the increase of internal energy plus the work done by the system. The internal energy of a closed system remains unchanged. For isolated systems Q=0, W=0 therefore ∆U = 0 For irreversible nonflow processes the energy equation can only be applied in integrated form:
Q @ W = ∆U
For reversible processes, the energy equation can only be applied in differential form:
V
d Q @ δW = d U δQ @ pdV = dU δW = pdV
W
For reversible, constant pressure processes (closed system):
p = constant [ pdV = d pV [ δq @ d pV = dU δQ = d U + pV = dH where H = enthalpy, J or Q = ∆H

The potential energy term is either zero or negligible compared with the other terms. The 1st law of thermodynamics does not make any distinction between heat transfer and work transfer: to it they are both energy “interactions” (nonproperties) that must be distinguished from the energy change (property) 1.2 Second Law of Thermodynamics It is an axiom. It says that it is impossible to construct a system which will operate in a cycle, extract heat from a reservoir, and does an equivalent amount of work on the surroundings. The 1st law says: the net work can never be greater than the heat supplied.
2
The 2nd law says: it must always be less. Therefore if a system is to undergo a cycle and produce work, it must operate between at least 2 reservoirs of different temperature. As a consequence, work is a more valuable form of energy transfer than heat: heat can never be transformed continuously and completely into heat.

The proper distinction between heat transfer and work transfer is made by the 2nd law of thermodynamics. There is always an entropy transfer associated with the heat transfer. A work transfer carries zero entropy. The 2nd law of only provides definite quantitative statement about reversible processes. Only for such processes is it possible to predict the work and heat transfers crossing the boundary of a system. For irreversible processes the law merely provides statements of trend (that the entropy of an isolated irreversible system must increase), and quantitative prediction of energy transfer

cannot be made. Therefore empirical relations (such as Newton’s law of viscosity, Fourier’s law of heat conduction, and Fick’s law of diffusion) are used. They all take the form of proportionality between a quantity transferred in an irreversible process and the property gradient. These “laws” are approximate empirical relations, whose accuracy is manifested by the fact that the “proportionality constants” are not in fact constants but vary with the conditions of the experiment (temperature, pressure, or their gradient,…)
1.3 TEMPERATURE It is the system property that determines whether the system is in thermal equilibrium with another system. In thermal equilibrium of system A and B: TA=TB. The temperature of a system is measured by placing the system in “contact” with a special system (a test system) called thermometer. Temperature scales have 2 reference points. Celsius scale 0oC Icepoint of water (ice and airsaturated water in equilibrium at standard atmosphere pressure) 100 oC: Boiling point of water (liquid water in equilibrium with its own vapor at standard atmospheric pressure) Fahrenheit scale 32 oF: Icepoint of water 212 oF: Boiling point of water ToC =5/9 [T(oF)32] Kelvin scale (thermodynamic scale or absolute scale) 273.16K: Tripepoint of water (it is only slightly above that of the icepoint 273.15K) 0 K: Absolute zero The unit of thermodynamic temperature is 1/273.16 = 1K This odd unit makes TbpTicepoint = 100K and ∆T ° C = ∆ K T The temperature difference in Kelvin is the same as it is in oC 0 oC=273.15K and T(K)= T(oC)+273.15

1.4 The Modes of Heat Transfer There are 3 basic modes of heat transport: 1. Conduction 2. Convection 3. Radiation Conduction (Fourier’s law) Heat is transported on a molecular scale with no movement of macroscopic portions of matter relative to one another. Conduction can take place through solids, liquids, and gases. In fluids: The kinetic energy of the molecules is associated with the property we call temperature. In high – temperature regions, molecules have higher kinetic energies than those in a low – temperature region. The molecules in the high temperature region transfer their energy, through collisions, to molecules in the lowtemperature region. In solids: Conduction is due to motion of free electrons in metals, lattice waves (vibrations of the crystal lattice structure) in non metals, magnetic excitations and electromagnetic radiation. Convection (sensible heat; and Newton’s law) It is heat transport due to the bulk motion of the fluid. The process occurs through the movement of macroscopic volume elements of the fluid in space from a region of one temperature to that of another. The energy transported in this way is called sensible heat.

Convection also involves the energy exchange between a solid and a fluid (interface transport). Convection is only possible in a fluid medium 2 types of convection are distinguished (a) free or natural convection – The fluid moves because of the density difference resulting from the temperature difference in the fluid (b) forced convection – The fluid is forced to flow past a solid surface

Radiation It is the transport of energy by electromagnetic radiation having a defined range of wavelength. The wavelength range of interest in thermal radiation extends from 0.220µm. (The wavelength range of visible radiation is 0.30.8µm, and that of infrared (IR) radiation is 0.8400µm). All substances emit radiant heat but the net flow of heat is from the high – to – low temperature region. So the cooler substance will absorb more radiant heat energy than it emits. The radiation from all bodies depends on temperature (increases with temperature). No physical medium is needed for the propagation of radiation. Often all 3 forms of radiation are involved simultaneously. It is then usual to calculate the heat transport by each mode separately and adding the separate effects to provide an estimate of the total rate of heat transport. In a number of cases, 1 mode of heat transport is dominant. 1.5 Fourier’s law of heat conduction Fourier’s law of heat conduction is based on the empirical observation of one dimensional steady heat flow through a solid. (Steady flow means that the temperature at any point does not vary with time; onedimensional means that the temperature is uniform over surfaces perpendicular to the direction of heat flow.)

This distance is called thermal boundary layer thickness and is highly dependent on the flow velocity.

When a thermometer is placed in a gas stream to measure temperature. a radiation heat transfer coefficient hr can be defined as qrad = A1 hr T 2 @ T 1 b c qrad = heat transfer rate by radiation. which is welded into the tube wall. however the radiation heat transfer coefficient is a very strong function of temperature. Effect of radiation on temperature measurement The temperature of a flowing fluid in a tube is usually measured by a thermometer or thermocouple put into a well. 14 . W hr = radiation heat transfer coefficient. W / m 2 K b c When radiation heat transfer occurs from a surface it is usually accompanied by convective heat transfer unless the surface is in vacuum: qconv = A1 hc T 2 @ T 1 The total heat transfer is the sum of the two: q = qconv + qrad = hc + hr A1 T 2 @ T 1 b c b c Note: The convective heat transfer is not strongly dependent on temperature. Consider the element shown on the next sketch.qr = A1 ε1 σF1 @ 2 T 2 @ T 1 4 b 4 c Radiation heat transfer coefficient Analogously to Newton’s law of cooling. Energy will be transferred by convection to the thermometer and then dissipated by radiation to the surroundings. the temperature indicated by the sensing element is determined by the overall energy balance on the element.
For instance. Radiation from the sun The sun radiates very nearly like a black circular disk with a temperature of 5600K. hollow cylinder open on both ends is a desirable configuration. The radiation shield must be designed so that it protects the temperature sensing element of the thermometer from the radiation coming from the walls but does not inhibit convective heat transfer at the thermometer surface. the maximum radiation intensity is found at 0. A short.3 Re0. 40% in the visible wavelength range and 55% in the infrared (IR) up to ~3µm.5µm wavelength and approximately 5 % of the radiation occurs in the ultravoilet (UV) range. depends on its absorptivity.

This insulation power depends upon the emissivity of the shield surface.This equation assumes that the surroundings are either very large or black. The heat transfer coefficient h for the above heat balance can be estimated from: Nu=0. An estimate of the errors in temperature measurement should be made in each installation. They do not deliver or remove any heat from the overall system. they only place another resistance in the heat flow path so that the overall heat transfer is reduced. m Radiation shields are frequently employed to alleviate this difficulty. and 15% is absorbed in the temperature. Radiation shields are made of metals which are highly reflective outside the blackened inside. Vey large errors can result temperature measurements if this energy balance is not taken into account. which a surface absorbs. The amount of the solar radiation. As a consequence of the high temperature. 15 . 42% is reflected or refracted back to space from clouds and the air and reflected from the earth’s surface. Solar radiation has a short wavelength and the absorptivity for such radiation may be considerably different from the absorptivity for long wave radiation . a white surface has considerably smaller absorptivity than the Al surface for solar radiation. This equation shows that the temperature indicated by the thermometer is not the true gas temperature but some radiation –convection equilibrium temperature.

For other problems the surface resistance is negligible.1 Systems with negligible internal resistance. only a temperature difference between the surface and the free stream The heat transferred between the object and the fluid is controlled by the surface resistance (ie the value of the heat transfer coefficient h)   33 .Lumped capacitance model Consider an object at an initial temperature of Ti that is being cooled (or heated) by a fluid stream at a temperature of T∞. If the thermal conductivity of the object is high. Still. the internal resistance (δ/kA) to the het flow is small then:  The temperature profile within the object is uniform and everywhere equal to the surface temperature. There is a heat loss or gain by convection (internal transfer) to the surroundings. for others both are important. but for more complicated systems we need numerical or graphical techniques.For relatively simple geometries the above differential equation can be solved. There are 2 types of resistances to the heat transport:  Internal thermal resistance: δ/kA Surface or film resistance : 1/hA We can identify 3 types of problems that arise for a transient problem. At any instant in time there are no temperature gradients within the object. 4. For some problems the internal resistance is negligible compared to the surface resistance.
Because the temperature does not change (significantly) withi the solid.The heat –transfer process is called Newtonian cooling (or heating). we can formulate a model by performing an energy balance on the object. To simplify the differential equation we introduce dimensionless temperature Then the heat flow rate becomes This means that the bodyfluid difference decays exponentially. 34 .
Thus the lump capacitance equation becomes: 35 . It presents the ratio of heat transfer by conduction to the energy storage rate within the material.This equation describes the timetemperature history of the solid object. Examining the exponent of the lump capacitance equation: The ratio of volume to surface area for an object is often used as a characteristic length Lch Where Fourier number is a dimensionless time parameter. It is called the lumped capacitance equation. or thermal time constant. or decay time constant. ρ cp V  lumped capacitance ρcpV/hA .the characteristic time of decay. It takes a longer time for the body to reach equilibrium with the surroundings fluid when its lumped capacitance is large and / or its product hA is small.
1. The instantaneous temperature from the lump capacitance equation is This implies: The amout of heat Q in Joules transferred from the solid from time t=0 to t= t is 36 .The assumption of negligible internal resistance is reasonably accurate when Bi < 0. This is the criterion for the lump. At any time.capacitance equation to apply. the instantaneous rate of heat transfer q(t) in Watt from the body is Where T= instantaneous temperature.
The aim is to predict the temperature profile in the plate with time. will assume the same temperature as the fluid: T1=T∞ which holds when Bi>1. At some time zero. Fourier solved this problem by developing the method of Fourier series. The thickness of the plate is 2L.) If the heat transfer coefficient h is very large then the film resistance (1/hA) is negligible so the surface temperature.2 Systems with negligible surface resistance Consider an infinite plate of thickness 2L at an initial uniform temperature Ti.

An infinite cylinder is a cylinder where the diameter is small compared to the length.1. An infinite plate is a plate whose thickness is small in relation to the other dimensions. On a chart (Fig 6. The instantaneous heat flow rate (q) and the amout of heat transferred (q) for the infinite plate are : 39 .6).This equation is for the case where the left and right faces of an infinite wall are maintained at the same temperature Ti. knowing Fo number the dimensionless temperature for the center plane can be read for different shapes. only the first term in the series need to be used in the solution (except at points very close to the boundaries). The temperature history at the midplane (x=L) is of practical interest and is a function of Fourier number: For values of Fo much greater than 0.This makes possible a graphical presentation . The centerline of the plate is a line of symmetry and therefore analogous to an insulated or adiabatic surface.

CONVECTION In most transfer processes heat transfer in fluids is accompanied by some fluid motion so that the heat transfer does not occur by conduction. The method o solution: 49 . 2. th en it is used to derive the temperature profile. There are 2 types of heat transport involving fluids: 1. 5. Free or Natural convection The fluid flow is caused by the buoyant effect resulting from heating o cooling the fluid.Parallelipiped (rectangular bar) This body can be viewed as the intersection of 3 infinite plates that are perpendicular. Forced convection The e fluid flow is established by an external driving force (pressure difference –provided by a pump or gravitational force). The method of solution: First the velocity profile is found.
The velocity profile and temperature profile are intimately related and therefore determined together. at high velocities it is laminar near the heating surface and turbulent at some distance away. In general. 2.1 Equation of continuity (equation of conservation of mass) The equation of continuity in vector form is The equation of continuity in rectangular coordinates (Table 7. energy. the fluid motion can be described by the equations of fluid mechanics. we have 2 types of flow situation: 1. Whether the heat transfer mechanism is natural or forced convection. However. and momentum balance (equations of change).they are enclosed completely by solid surfaces (flow in a pipe or duct) 5. the mathematical difficulties with the integration of these simultaneous nonlinear partial differential equations are such that analytical solutions exist only for relatively simple problems.1) is For incompressible fluid 5.2 Equation of motion (equation of conservation of momentum) 50 .

It is usually negligible.Where Øv= viscous dissipation function .4 Applications of equations of change to turbulent flow The equation s of change in laminar flow for a certain simple geometrical situations can be solved and the temperature distribution can be determined analytically. For turbulent flows none of the velocities vanish in the Navier –Stokes equation and all of the non linear terms remain. Simplification of the equation of thermal energy: For ideal gas For a fluid at constant pressure ( ρ=constant) In rectangular coordinate system: For solids (ρ=constant) 5. Once the temperature profile is known. such as heat flux or bulk temperature. it is needed only in special situations. Therefore. pressure and temperature to get mean values and timeaveraged the equation of change. 52 . other parameters.
but for most of the situations we cannot. The equations of change describing the flow are Equation of continuity: These equations were considerably simplified by Prandtl.For very simple geometry. dimensional analysis… 5. He recognized in 1904 that the effect of the solid boundary on the flow is confined too a very thin layer of fluid immediately adjacent to the solid wall and can be considered negligible beyond d it. The refore alternative solution methods have been devised such as boundary –layer theory. This layer is called the boundary layer. these equations can be solved.5 Boundary layer flow Consider the problem of the 2dimensional steady flow of an incompressible Newtonian fluid with constant properties over a flat plate in laminar flow. 53 .
a velocity gradient is set up because of the viscous forces acting within the liquid. the velocity in the neighborhood of the surface will change with distance perpendicular to the flow. Typically . The boundary layer grows from the leading edge with distance x. δ and ∆t are a few thousandths of a millimeter thick. The free stream velocity is approached asymptotically. The thermal boundary layer thickness δT where the temperature approaches T∞: T is approximately T∞.When a fluid flows over a surface the elements in contact with the surface will be brought to rest and the adjacent layers layers retarded by the viscous drag of the fluid. it is convenient to define the boundary layer thickness such that the velocity at its outer edge equals 99% of the free stream velocity. Thus. The fluid in contact with the surface will be brought to rest and will gradually approach the free stream velocity v∞ at some distance from the surface. ρ=constant) (2) A boundary layer (the fluid adheres to the surface due to viscous effects) The thickness of the layer in which the fluid is retarded becomes greater with distance in the direction of flow. However. Anywhere along the plate the velocity profile changes from the uniform free. and therefore the boundary layer strictly has no precise outer limit. Despite their size.99V∞. That is the hydrodynamic boundary layer thickness δ is where Vx is approximately 0. both are important in determining drag forces and heat transfer rates. The velocity increases from zero at the surface to nearly the free stream value at some distance away . Suppose a fluid approaches the plate with uniform v∞ (or free stream velocity) and T∞ temperature when the fluid reaches the surface. Within the boundary layer the velocity in x direction varies only with y: Vx=Vx(y) Similar behavior occurs with temperature. This layer was termed boundary layer by Prandtl. 54 .stream profile. We divide the flow regions into 2 parts: (1) A non –viscous region away from any solid surfaces (ideal fluid: µ=0.
2. The pressure across the boundary layer is assumed to be constant: dp/dy is approx 0 5. 4. 55 . There is negligible heat conduction in the direction of flow: d2T/dx2<< d2T/dy2 The equations for the boundary layer become: Solutions for the temperature profiles depend on the boundary conditions specified (heating could begin at the leading edge of the plate or somewhere downstream. d2Vx/dx2 is much smaller than d2Vx/dy2 3. vy<<vx (so all terms in the Navier – stokes equation ycomponent which involve Vy may be neglected). The boundary layer is thin compared to the distance measured from the leading edge.The mathematical simplifications for the equations of change: 1.

The approximate solution from the integral method developed by von Karman and Pohlhausen (1921) Blasius’ exact solution It is assumed that the velocity profiles have similar shapes at various distances from the leading edge of the plate. If δ is the value where Vx/V∞ = 0. y=0. to the boundary layer thickness. Solution by the integral method This method for solving the boundary layer momentum equation is approximate and much easier to apply to a wide range of problems than is any exact method of solution.96.0 instead of 4. then: where The Reynolds number based on the downstream distance x. We are not really interested in the details of the velocity or temperature profiles in the boundary layer. Some literature gives the constant 5. we integrate the boundary layer equations from the wall .2. that is they have the same functional dependence o y regardless of x location. That is δ. It turns out that 56 . (These slopes give the shear stress and the heat flux at the wall ). the thickness of the boundary layer is proportional to the square root of the kinematic viscosity (ν) and the square root of the downstream distance x. y=δ.
but they do give accurate explicit equations for τw and q’’w. Shear stress at the wall The shear stress at the surface of the plate τw(x) may be determined from the rate o fluid shear (dvx/dy) in the boundary layer at y=0. The total skin friction drag obtained by integrating the wall shear stress over the plate area ( with W as the plate width): Heat and momentum transfer analogy Let’s define a new dimensionless group called Prandtl number as The physical significance of the Prandtl number of a fluid is that it represents the ratio of the transport coefficient for viscous momentum transport to the transport coefficient for heat conduction.these much simpler equations do not reveal anything new about the temperature and velocity profiles. The solution leads to the boundary layer thickness The result is in close agreement with that obtained in the exact solution. 57 .
δ=δT   (a) For Pr=1 The equation of energy is similar to the equation of motion. For Prandtl numbers much smaller than unity. the dimensionless velocity is equal to the dimensionless temperature): In the case we can immediately calculate the heat transfer coefficient from the heat flux at the wall from Blasius’ exact solution: 58 . the hydrodynamic boundary layer is relatively small and we neglect the effect of the solid surface on the velocity distribution when we formulate the thermal energy balance. as in the case of slags. When the Prandtl is large. The boundary conditions are identical for dimensionless velocity and dimensionless temperature. the hydrodynamic boundary layer is greater than the thermal boundary layer. as in the case of liquid metals. When Prandtl is close to unity. so each problem must have the same solution( i. the ability of the fluid to transport momentum is greater than that to transport thermal energy. then the differential equations are identical. Under these conditions. as in the case with most gases. δ=δT. If α=ν. the hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layers practically coincide. that is we may ignore any velocity gradients and assume that all the fluid moves at the free stream velocity.e. the dimensionless velocity profile solution is the same as the dimensionless temperature profile solution and for any point in the flow system. δ>δT.
It is customary to express the heat transfer coefficient in terms of dimensionless group Nux. local heat transfer coefficient and the local Nusselt number is: 59 . So Nux =0.332 Re ½ for Pr =1 (b) For Pr not equal to 1 From the integral method of solution Pohlhausen found that With this. the temperature gradient at the wall becomes: So the heat flux at the wall.
fluid temperature. The average heat transfer coefficient h (or h) for the entire surface is Since the analysis was based on constant fluid properties. which. they depend on the local temperature.These equations give the local heat transfer coefficient (hx) and the dimensionless local heat transfer coefficient (Nux) at a distance x from the leading edge of the plate. in real situations are not. fluid properties have to be evaluated at the average temperature of the fluid in the boundary layer: Turbulent flow over a flat plate 60 .
Convective Heat Transfer in closed Conduit The most important convective heattransfer process industrially is that of cooling or heating a fluid flowing inside a closed conduit in pipe. For purposes of calculation it is customarily assumed that transition occurs at Rex= 5 x 105. The onset of turbulence is characterized by a sudden rapid increase in the thickness of the boundary layer. the integral method gives very good results. however. The relationship between temperature profile and heat transfer at a boundary surface is defined in terms of the heat transfer coefficient introduced in Newton’s law of cooling. However. and each has an associated heat transfer coefficient. The hydrodynamic boundary layer thickness is And the local nusselt number is 6. It is not possible to solve the boundary layer equations to obtain an exact solution. For flow in a conduit. there are several temperature differences of importance. The heat transfer coefficient depends on the temperature difference selected. Transition usually occurs over a range 2 x 10 5 < or = Rex < or =3 x 106 and not a single point.As the boundary layer thickens. a point is reached where turbulence appears. The velocity profiles in laminar and turbulent flows are different. at distances farther from the leading edge. In turbulent region. 61 . the turbulent profile is flatter over a greater portion of the boundary layer due to mixing effect. there is still a laminar sublayer near the surface.
in terms of the heat transfer coefficient. The heat transfer coefficients for the laminar flow have a strong dependence on position. To relate the heat transferred to the fluid temperature between the wall a nad the fluid 6. entrance region A fluid usually enters a pipe with uniform velocity and temperature profiles. To relate the heat transferred to the temperature change experienced by the fluid. Ass a result. where ze is the hydrodynamic entrance length and δT = R at z=zT. it is customary to express heat transfer performance.1 Laminar flow. engineers prefer to work with heat transfer coefficients. even for laminar flow. momentum. where zT is the thermal entry length. Constant wall heat flux In the number of practical problems q’’ wall heat flux is constant rather than Tw wall temperature. then both thermal and hydrodynamic boundaries begin developing at the pipe inlet. For flow over a plate. There are 2 objectives 1. the continuity. The thickness of these boundaries layer grows till δ=R at z=ze. and energy equations have been solved for the constant wall heat flux problem to give the following exact solution: 62 . This is not usually the case for the heat transfer with turbulent flow. 2.Although the solution for the differential energy balance in the laminar flow regime is available. If the pipe wall is heated or cooled.
T varies from Tw to some value at the center line.Therefore for Pr> 1 the flow develops hydrodynamically more rapidly than it does thermally. If we integrate the local coefficient hz over a definite area (such as the surface area As). Experimentally this can be achieved by passing electric current through a metal pipe by wrapping the duct with a material through which an electric current is passed. Both Tw and Tb can vary in the zdirection.average heat transfer coefficient. At any axial location z. but with the constant heat input that exists. TT∞ increases with increasing axial distance z. The temperature profile reaches a nonchanging shape (thermally developed flow). The local heat transfer coefficient hz is TwTb is the temperature difference between the wall and the fluid. The solution in the entrance region The Leveque solution (1928) for the Nusselt number in the entrance region for laminar flow and constant wall temperature 6. It is an important quantity. the integrated result would be h.constant heat flux at the wall The heat flux at the wall q’’w = q/A = constant. The fluid temperature at the inlet is T∞ and varies within the tube.2 Heat transfer in laminar flow. The solution to the problem: 63 .
3 Heat transfer in laminar flow. (In case of a pure substance condensation is an isothermal process.The is the dimensionless heat transfer coefficient based on the local heat transfer coefficient is: 6. but the flux q’’w decreases with increasing z. The heat transfer rate for the problem is 64 .) Tbcontinues to approach Tw with increasing Z. The combined effect is that the local coefficient hz becomes constant in the thermally developed region.Constant wall temperature Experimentally constant wall temperature can be achieved by allowing a fluid to condense on the outside surface of the tub.
Graphical representation of results The Nusselt number based on the local coefficient hz is significant parameter. From dimensional analysis it can be seen that: The following graph summarizes the results obtained from the solution of the differential equation of energy. The temperature profile is thermally developed when 1/Gz> 0.05 65 .
5 Heat transfer in turbulent flow in tubes in tubes Turbulent flow becomes hydrodynamically and thermally fully developed after a short distance from the entrance to the tube: Ze< 50 D 66 .entrylength problem for the laminar flow When the laminar flow is not developed hydrodynamically or thermally. It is often impractical to have graphs from which to obtain Nusselt number. For the combined problem of developing velocity and the temperature profiles. Sieder –Tate equation is useful : It applies to steady laminar flow of Newtonian fluid in a tube having constant wall temperature under the following conditions: 6.6.4 The combined. the case is referred to as the combinedentrylength problem. For this case the heat transfer in the entrance region is more sensitive to the Prandtl number. Graphical representation of the problem (as graphs of Nu vs 1/Gz) is available in literature for constant wall temperature or constant wall flux as well.
at the wall temperature. Dimensional analysis predicts that the Nusselt number depends on Reynolds and Prandtl numbers. It is not possible to obtain a closed – form solution for the velocity profile in turbulent flow. and hence µw. Combining with experimental results. In place of this type of correlation another is often used. The use of this equation may be trial and error.Heat transfer coefficients are higher with turbulent flow than with laminar flow. since value of hL must be known to evaluate Tw. most equipment are operated in the turbulent range.Boelter Equation 67 . This equation should be used for water. which consists of using a dimensionless group j called the Colburn factor: The dimensionless group j is often plotted against the Re number Dittus. the following is found to apply: SiederTate equation: This correlation is applicable in case of moderate temperature differences between the wall and the fluid. Since the rate of heat transfer is greater I turbulent flow than in laminar flow.
These correlations for the turbulent regime predict the local Nusselt number. When dealing with noncircular conduits. 68 . The average Nusselt number based on a heat transfer coefficient for the entire tube is not available. the hydraulic diameter or equivalent diameter is used in the heat transfer correlations whenever D diameter appears.

Condensation occurs when a saturated vapor comes into contact with a solid surface whose surface temperatureTw is below the saturation temperature Tsat. The condensing vapor may consist of  A single substance ( eg steam) 73 . at each end. which serve to support them and direct the fluid flow in the shell in such a way that the heat transfer is enhanced. called baffles. The tubes pass through a number of flat plates. 8 Condensation heat transfer Condensation is a convective process associated with a phase change of fluid. to form a liquid. The assembly of tubes and baffles.The number of tubes in the tube bundle ranges from about 20 to over 1000. Processes of heat transfer accompanied by phase change are more complex than simple heat exchange between fluids. along their length. termed tube sheets.

specks …). in turn. glycerin. It is this film of 74 . There are 2 types of condensation dropwise condensation filmtype condensation Dropwise condensation The condensate begins to form at microscopic nucleation sites (eg tiny pits. This type of condensation is so unstable and is so difficult to maintain (because the surfaces become wetted after prolonged exposure to a condensing vapor) that the method is not uncommon. and clear the surface for more droplets. For normal design purposes filmtype condensation is assumed. A mixture of condensable and noncondensable substances (e. The drops grow and coalesce with their neighbors’ to form visible fine drops. Dropwise condensation occurs when the condensate does not wet the surface (e. it forms a continuous liquid film through which heat must be transferred. The liquid film flows over a surface by the action of gravity. Mixed vapors condensing at constant pressure condense over a temperature range and yield a condensate of variable composition until the entire vapor stream is condensed. During drop wise condensation.  The condensing temperature of a single pure substance depends on ly on the pressure therefore the process is isothermal. isoheptane.g. scratches.

The average coefficient for dropwise condensation may be 510 times that for the filmtype condensation and can be as high as 110 000W/m2K. coalesce into small streams. nitrobenzene.
but the nature of the coefficient correlations is somewhat different. Condensing film coefficients are much greater than those in forced convection and are of the order of magnitude of several thousand of W/m2K. The film may flow in the laminar or in the turbulent regime. Pure vapors are usually condensed on the outside of tubes (shell side). and geometry The usual design for condensers employs tubes. The basic equations for the rate of heat transfer in filmtype condensation were first developed by Nusselt (1916) 75 . Friction losses in a condenser are normally small.liquid between the surface and vapour that forms the main resistance to heat transfer. with the condensate formed inside or outside of the tubes. so that condensation is a constant pressure process. The thickness of the film increase rapidly in the first few centimeters and then more and more slowly. depending upon: the rate of condensation fluid properties length of path of the growing condensate film. depending upon whether the condensation process takes place on vertical or horizontal tubes. These same basic design equations used for heat exchangers are valid.
The film is 2dimensional and has a thickness of δ at any z location [δ=δ(z)]. The physical properties of the condensate are constant and evaluated at a mean film temperature Tf hz = k/δ) 7. 6. Nusselt Assumptions: 1.8. Negligible vapor shear exists at the interface. Pure vapor is at its Tsat saturation temperature 2. 76 . The temperature distribution through the film is linear.1 Vertical surfacesLaminar flow On a vertical flat surface of width W a vapor is condensing in a filmtype manner. 5.

Adsorption: A solute is removed from either a liquid or gas through contact with a solid adsorbent. dehumidification. O2 Ar. The solute is then recovered from the liquid by distillation. Mass transfer can occur in the same phase orfrom one phase to the other. Such operations may be entirely mechanical (e. diesel. by vaporization.

All mass transfer calculations. We will consider only binary mixtures 84 .Auxilliary operations heat addition orremoval ( to change temperature or phase conditions) work addition or removal ( to change pressure) . If the mixture is stagnant. Sometimes the diffusion process is accompanied by bulk flow of the mixture in a direction parallel to the direction of diffusion and it is often associated with heat flow. however. mass transfer occurs by the mechanism of forced or natural convection. utilizing the concept of equilibrium stages. we will extend the analogy to include mass transfer. The choice of method depends on the kind of equipment in which the operation is carried out. This is called eddy diffusion. the transfer occurs through stagnant layers of solid or fluid by molecular diffusion.mixing or dividing. If there is a bulk mixing of phases or layers of fluids by mechanical stirring or because of a density gradient. involve knowledge of the equilibrium relationships between phases. You have already seen that analogy between momentum and energy transfer. This mechanism is analogous to the heat transfer by conduction. Solids separation by size Mass transfer problems can be solved by 2 distinctly different methods: based on diffusional rate processes.
but because of the considerably higher molecular concentration.1 Molecular Diffusion is the movement of individual molecules through a substance by virtue of their thermal energy. When the gradient is maintained by constantly supplying the diffusing component to the highconcentration end of the gradient and removing it at the lowconcentration end. completely penetrate the liquid. But placing a 0.75m. The analogy between heat and mass transfer is so straightforward that equations developed for the former are often found to apply to the latter by simply changing the meaning of the symbols. A 1. 85 . Within each eddy.75m deep layer of pure water is carefully placed over the brine without disturbing the brine in any way.5m diameter tank is filled with a salt solution to a depth of 0. the diffusion rate is very slow. ultimately coming everywhere to onehalf its concentration in the original brine. by molecular diffusion. If the contents of the tank are left completely undisturbed. A 0. This method of solute transfer is called eddy or turbulent diffusion. On the other hand. In a twophase system not at equilibrium. uniformity is achieved only by molecular diffusion. whereupon its velocity changes n both magnitude and direction. (e. and the average velocity depends on the temperature. the diffusion rates are even slower than in gases. The molecule thus travels in a zigzag path. no matter how small. a simple paddle agitator rotating in the tank at 22rpm will bring about complete uniformity in approximately 60s.) Diffusion also takes place in fluids by physical mixing and by eddies of turbulent flow. For this reason.g. the salt will. A concentration gradient tends to move the compound in such direction as to equalize concentrations and destroy the gradient. MOLECULAR DIFFUSION 2.2.1 mm thick layer of stagnant air at 1 atm pressure above the water surface reduces the rate by a factor of approximately 600) The same general mechanism prevails also for the liquid state. spontaneous alteration through molecular diffusion also occurs. The kinetic theory of gases provides a means of visualizing what occurs. being only a small fraction of the length of its actual path. the rate of diffusion.5% of its final value after 10 years and will reach 99% of is final value after 28 years. (To demonstrate the importance of the barrier molecular collision presents to diffusive movement: the rate of evaporation of water at 25oc into complete vacuum is approximately 3. But the process is very slow. the net distance in one direction which it moves in a given time. which is the ultimate process. The average distance the molecule travels between collisions is its mean free path. It can be calculated that the salt concentration at the top surface will still be only 87.3kg/s per 1m2 of water surface. sum as layer of NH3air as a gas solution in contact with a layer of liquid water. A molecule is imagined to travel in a straight line at a uniform velocity until it collides with another molecule. the flow of the diffusing component is continuous.
2. diffusion occurs in at least 1 phase and often in both phases (e. ci. solute diffuses through the gas phase to the interface between the phases and through the liquid phase from the interface.g. but it will not be the same in both phases. At the end. the concentration of any constituent is the same throughout a phase. the mass fraction. The chemical potential ( or activity ) of the components. will be uniform everywhere throughout the system at equilibrium and this brings the diffusive process to a halt. We will use four: the mass concentration. In gas absorption. the molar concentration. 86 .2 Definitions of concentrations. and the average molecular mass of the mixture is M. The molecular mass species i is Mi. which is differently dependent on concentration in the 2 phases. In all mass transfer operations. xi. ωi. velocities and mass fluxes In a multicomponent system the concentrations of various species may be expressed in numerous ways. and the mole fraction. ρi.ultimately bringing the entire system to a state of equilibrium whereupon alteration stops.
I In a diffusing mixture the various chemical species are moving at different velocities. Let vi denote the velocity of species I with respect to stationary coordinate axes. for a mixture the local mass average velocity v is defined as 87 . Then.
A is moving faster than the bulk of the phase. Similarly. its diffusion velocity is measured relative to the moving fluid. Expressed mathematically. 88 . To a stationary observer. the velocity of A relative to the stationary point VA is then the sum of the diffusion vAd and the molar average velocity v*. since the diffusion velocity vAd is added to that of the bulk phase molar average velocity v*. The velocity of a particular species relative to the molar average velocity (v*) is called the diffusion velocity (vAd ).This is the local velocity one would measure by a Pitot tube and identical to the bulk flow velocity v as used in for pure fluids. we may define a local molar average velocity v* as When the whole fluid is moving in convective flow and component A is diffusing in the same direction as the flow.
vA and vB are identical. ( In the flow of a uniform mixture through a pipe. there is no interdiffusion effect . The motion may be referred to as stationary coordinates or to the local molar average velocity v* In any of the equations derived for the integral or differential balances. because the mass average velocity and the molar average velocity are different.) 89 . However.The mass or molar flux of a species is a vector quantity denoting the mass or moles of the species that passes through a unit surface area per unit time. vA and vB differ with effect noted above. which apply to mixtures. and the mas flux is then equal to he molar flux N multiplied by the average molecular mass M. in cases foe which there is a concentration gradient in the direction of flow. Therefore. the mass flux is not equal to the molar flux N times the average molecular mass M. the velocity used has been the mass average velocity.
When the mole fraction xA or mass fraction ωA are small. Only 1 component (A) of the mixture is transferred to or from the interface.we don’t deal with this) Diffusion rates are described in terms of molar flux (mole/areatime).g in diffusion of chemically reacting species to and from a catalyst surface. the area being measured in a direction normal to the diffusion. even containing only 2 constituents. so that there is no net molar flow. Diffusion quantities In a nonuniform solution. kmol/m2s ( it is important in the design of equipment) J= the molar flux relative to a fixed location in space kmol/m2s (it is more characteristic of the nature of the constituent. nA) is approximately equal to the flux relative to the average velocity of the fluid due to diffusion (JA. (eg. jA) 2.g distillation) 3. Diffusion of A and B takes place in opposite direction. The diffusion of component A in a mixture is balanced by an equal aand opposite molar flow of component B. the flux with respect to stationary coordinates (NA. but the molar fluxes are unequal (e. N= the molar flux relative to a fixed location in space. and this leads to the use of 2 fluxes to describe the motion of 1 constituent.3 Fick’s first law There are 3 types of situations in diffusion: 1. Absorption of a single component from a gas into a liquid) 2. (e.) 90 . both constituent must diffuse if uniformity is the ultimate result. and the total flow is the same as the flow of A.
For steady state conditions the net flux is NA+NB=N It is usually convenient to describe the mass flux by diffusion (diffusion flux) relative to a stationary coordinate system. rather than the average molar velocity of the fluid. and diffusional fluxes exist in all direction. just as heat flows by conduction in the direction of decresing temperature. Fick’s law is the definition of diffusivity DAB . velocities. NA= NxA+JA since xA=cA/c and N =cvz All the above has considered diffusion in only 1 direction . concentration gradients . The movement of a carried by molecular diffusion. 91 .Fick’s first law states that the species A diffuses (moves relative to the mixture) in a direction of decreasing concentration of A. This can be done by the following consideration: The movement of A carried by the convective bulk fluid flow. but in general.
an approximate value of D is sometimes obtained. the diffusion rates are those of the individual ions. For intermediate concentrations. The diffusivity in concentrated solutions differs from that in dilute solutions because of changes in viscosity with concentration and also because of changes in the degree of nonideality of the solution. The diffusivities can be considered independent of concentration at pressures below ~5atm. Gases DAB values fall in the range of 0. Diffusivities in gases can be predicted with considerable accuracy from kinetic theory. Solids 92 . Often the desired values are available and they must be estimated from published correlations.1.0 cm2/s. undissociated molecules. The diffusivity of gases varies inversely with pressure: The diffusivity of gases varies wit temperature as DAB=const T3/2: Liquids The theory of diffusion in liquids is not advanced nor the experimental data as plentiful as gas diffusion. but this method can lead to large errors for nonideal solutions.4 Diffusivity Diffusivities are best established by experimental measurements. DAB ranges 105 to 106cm2/s and it varies appreciably with the concentration and temperature. Unlike the case for binary gas mixtures the diffusivity for a dilute solution of A in B is not the same as for a dilute solution of B in A. which move rapidly than the large.1. Diffusivities for dilute solutions can be calculated approximately from formulas presented in literature. For strong electrolytes dissolved in water.2.
A may be produced by chemical reaction at a molar rate RA. It is of the order of 108 to 1010 cm2/s. The atoms in a crystalline solid are localized at certain positions in the crystal lattice. Its energy is low at the lattice position but higher in between. The effect of diffusion in solids is very important in metallurgy and ceramic industry. the atom needs certain activation energy to jump over this energy barrier. A balance equation in general: Rate of A out – Rate of A in + Rate of accumulation of A=Rate of generation of A Expressed in mathematical terms.One component in a solid will diffuse through the other at a measurable rate if there is a suitable concentration gradient and the temperature is high enough. For concentrated systems the diffusivity is a strong function of composition and temperature. An atom vibrates about it equilibrium position. We can write a mass balance for the diffusion species A over the volume element as we have done it for total mass and momentum before. through which a binary of A and B is flowing. The rate of reaction in some chemical processes is determined by solid diffusion. Within this element. and occasionally a vibration becomes strong enough to cause the atom to escape its original position and jump to a new place. Diffusion in Binary Mixtures 3. DAB values are given in reference books. 3. the equation of continuity for component A will be Reminder: the differential energy balance equation for ρ=constant was 93 . kmol/m3s. The diffusion process in solids may be strongly nonisotropic.1 The equation of continuity for a binary mixture Consider a volume element fixed in space.
whereas the insoluble gas B wll undergo no net movement with respect to the interface. This implies that NB =0 94 . since generation of A is zero).2 Diffusion through a stagnant fluid (onecomponent mass transfer or oneway diffusion) In several important processes. a liquid interface) and the other will undergo no net movement. Consider liquid A (water) is evaporating into gas B (air). In evaporation from a free surface. the component balance equation for A results in a secondorder differential equation in terms of the concentration: 3. The vapor is diffusing at a constant rate (steadystate0 from the liquid surface up through the layer of stagnant air in the tube. and we maintain the liquid level at z=z1.If there are no chemical reactions (steady stse. 1 component in a gaseos mixture will be transported relative to a fixed plane (say. In gas absorption a soluble gas A will be ranferred to a liquid surface where it dissolves. and if the bulk flow through the volume element is negligible. the vapor will move away from the surface but the air will have kno movement.

For unsteady state situation. the fluid velocity . The fluid flow is more frequently turbulent to increase the rate of transfer per unit area or to increase the interfacial area. NA is defined a the flux at the phase interface. and concentration.4. It ws convenient to express the rate of heat flow in terms of a convective heat transfer coefficient by Newton’s law of cooling: The analogous situation in mass transfer is handled by an equation of the form: The dimensions of kc from the above definition: kc may apply to forced or natural convection. 98 . wher substance leaves or enters the phase for which kc is the mass transfer coefficient. or boundary.1 Individual mass transfer coefficients In the practical applications of the mass transfer operations. So the solution of the differential component mass balance is difficult as it was for the differential energy balance equation. MASS TRANSFER COEEFICIENTS 4. Its value is a function of the geometry of the system. the location along the surface. the properties of the fluid . the fluids are always in motion. so that we don’t have stagnant fluids. the mass transfer coefficient may also depend on time.
for use later in design.2 Mass transfer models Film theory This is the oldest and most obvious picture of the meaning of the mass transfer coefficient borrowed from a similar concept used for convective heat transfer. 4.Transfer of A through stagnant B Since the convective flow term has been ignored in the solution. we depend on direct measurement under known conditions. these masstransfer coeeficients are useful only for low mass transfer rates. Comparing the rate equation with the solution of “Transfer of A through stationary B” In a few limited situations mass transfer coefficients can be deduced from theoretical principles. In th eegreat majority of cases however. 99 .
we use film theory. with mass transfer occurring from the surface to the fluid. its thickness cannot be determined by any experiment. (This is a fictitious film. such that the entire concentration difference (cA1cA2) is attributed to molecular diffusion within an effective film of thickness δ. The problem was solved to give the molar flux of A as 100 . because of a concentration difference of (cA1cA2). the concentration distance relation ia sa shown by the full curve.When a fluid flows turbulently past a solid surface. since it does not exist. The shape of the curve is controlled by ED eddy diffusivity to DAB. the the concentration at the outer edge of this film is cA2. Thus. The film theory assumes that the concentration will follow the broken curve of the figure. Instead of attempting to solve the equation of the fluid flow.That is the resistance to diffusion in the entire flowing fluid is considered equivalent to that in a stagnant film of δ thickness.) The problem is now reduced to steadystate diffusion through a stagnant film of thickness δ.

The film theory is in conflict with our knowledge of turbulent flow. Obviously δ can never be measured. geometry. 101 . is a function of the same parameters as the mass transfer coefficient itself: velocity and properties of the fluid. but does well in case of high mass transfer flux. and in predicting the effect o reaction rate on mass transfer. The thickness of this fictitious film extends beyond the laminar sublayer to allow for the change in concentration in the buffer layer and turbulent core.That is the ktype mass transfer of coefficients for different solutes are directly proportional to the DAB’s for the solutes. So this fictitious thickness of laminarflowing fluid offers the same resistance to transfer as actually exists in the entire turbulently flowing fluid. so that the concentration gradient of the film theory. characteristic of steady state.) Penetration theory In many situations the time of exposure of a fluid to mass transfer is short. would not have time to develop. Unfortunately this last equation does not allow a direct way to evaluate kc. (Although there exists a laminar sublayer next to the wall in turbulent flow. Higbie (1935) described the contact of 2 fluids with this theory. since it does not exist. since only part of the concentration gradient is in the laminar sublayer and all of it is postulated to occur across a laminar film. concentration levels etc.
102 .
The average flux over the time interval 0 to tT is
This independence on DAB is typical of short exposure times, where the depth of solute penetration is small relative to the depth of absorbing pool. Difficulty: tT is not usually known. The depth of penetration, defined as the distance at which the concentration change is 1% of the final value is
Surface renewal theory The Higbie theory assumed a constant time of the eddies of fluid at the surface. Danckwerts gave more realistic picture, where the eddies are exposed for varying length of time. The liquidgas interface is then a mosaic of surface elements of different exposuretime histories. Since the rate of solute penetration depends on exposure time, the average rate for a unit surface area must be determined by summing up the individual values.
5. INTERPHASE MASS TRANSFER
In most mass transfer operations 2 insoluble phases are brought into contact to transfer of constituent substances between them. Therefore, we have to apply simultaneously the diffusional mechanism for each phase to the combined system. The rate of diffusion within each phase is dependent on the concentration gradient existing within it. At the same time, the concentration gradients of the 2phase system are indicative of the departure from equilibrium, which exists between the phases. When equilibrium is established, the concentration gradients and hence the rate of diffusion falls to zero.
5.1 Equilibrium Dynamic equilibrium
Example: the absorption of NH3 from NH3air mixture by water.
103
A fixed amount of water and NH3air mixture is placed in a closed container and maintained at constant temperature and pressure. Since NH3is very soluble in water, some NH3 molecules will instantly transfer from the gas into the liquid, crossing the interfacial surface separating the 2 phases. A portion of the NH3 escapes back into the gas, at a rate proportional to their concentration in the liquid. As more NH3 enters the liquid, the concentration increases in the liquid and the rate at which NH3 returns to the gas increases, until eventually the rate at which it enters the liquid exactly equals that at which it leaves. At the same time, through the mechanism of diffusion, the concentration throughout each phase becomes uniform. A dynamic equilibrium now exists, and while NH3 molecules continue to transfer back and forth from phase to the other, the net transfer falls to zero. The concentration within each phases no longer change. To the observer who cannot see the individual molecules the diffusion has apparently stopped.
Equilibrium relations
There are many useful equilibrium equations in books on physical chemistry. A few simple equations relating to vaporliquid equilibrium and gas absorption: Dalton’s law According to this law the partial pressure of a gas within a gas mixture is equal to the product of the total pressure (P) and its mole fraction (yi) of the gas phase. This law applies whether the gas is ideal or nonideal
104
Roult’s law When the liquid phase can be considered ideal, it is possible to predict the equilibrium partial pressure (pi*)of an ideal gas/vapor from the solution concentration and the physical properties of the pure components.
In reality there are no ideal solutions. Ideality would require that the mplcules of the constituents be similar in size, structure and chemical nature. Practically however, many solutions are so nearly ideal that for engineering purposes they can be so considered. Roult’s law matches experimental data best for components present in high concentration.
Henry’s law
For liquid solutions, which are not ideal, Roult’s law gives highly incorrect results. If the solution is sufficiently diluted, th eproportionality constant is no longer the vapor pressure of the pure componenet Pi but Hi

The mass transfer occurs between two immiscible fluids. the solubility is defined by giving the Henry law constant and the temperature. It is convenient to use an overall mass transfer coefficient. there must be a concentration gradient in the direction of mass transfer within each phase. Correctly. But these bulk concentrations cannot be used directly with a mass transfer coefficient since the 2 concentrations are differently related to the chemical potential. or dependent on. the film theory of mass transfer.Overall mass transfer coefficient The theory has a wrong name because it is related to. The bulk concentrations cs and cm are notequilibrium values. Most gases follow Henry’s law to equilibrium pressure to ~5 std atm. with continous flow of th e contacted phases such that concentrations at any point in the equipment used do not change with time. the name should be 2resistance theory.3 Twofilm theory. by water. Since the solute is diffusing from the liquid mixture (phases) into water (phase m). To get around the problem. Many of the mass transfer operations are carried out in the steady flow.When Henry’s law holds. 5. since diffusion of the solute A occurs. Lewis and Whitman (1923) assumed: 106 . which is real driving force. just as an overall heat transfer coefficient was used in heat transfer. Consider the extraction of a soluble component from a liquid mixture.
I and cm.I are equilibrium values==>  (Experiments verify the validity of the assumption) The concentrations are shown graphically in the next figure. There is no resistance to solute transfer across the interface separating the phases. Point P: represents the 2 bulkphase concentrations Point M: represents the concentrations at the interface 107 . This implies that The concentrations cs. The only diffusional resistances are those residing in the fluids themselves.
For steadystate mass transfer. 108 . Mass transfer in either film may be by diffusion through a laminar boundary layer or by unsteadystate diffusion. as in the penetration theory. the rate at which A reaches the interface from Liquid 1 must equal that at which it diffuses to the bulk liquid II . so that no accumulation or depletion of A at the interface occur The overall resistance to mass transfer is the sum of individual resistances (hence “tworesistance theory) The “films” in the model need not be stagnant layers of a certain thickness in order for the 2film theory to apply.
