A Note on Diffusive Mass Transport.
Haynes, Henry W., Jr.
Chemical Engineering Education, v20 n1 p22-27 Win 1986
Current chemical engineering textbooks teach that the driving force for diffusive mass transport in ideal solutions is the gradient in mole fraction. This is only true for ideal solution liquids. Therefore, it is shown that the appropriate driving force for use with ideal gases is the gradient in partial pressure. (JN)
