Problem 1

A viscous fluid is in laminar flow in a slit formed by two parallel walls a distance 2B
apart. Make a differential momentum balance and obtain the expression for the
distributions of momentum flux and velocity. What is the ration of average to maximum
velocity in the slit ? Obtain the analog of the Hagen-Poiseulle law of the slit.

Problem 2

Solution Problem 1:
a. The momentum balance leads to

and

Subtitution of Newtons law

into the above gives

or

Use of the no-slip boundary conditions at gives the expresions in Eq.
2B.3-1 and 2. One can also see that

directly, since we know that the plant

b. The maximum velocity is at the middle of the slit and is

and hence

The ratio of the average to the maximum velocity is then

[(

c. The mass rate of flow is

d. In Eq. 2.5-22, set both viscosities equal to , set b equal to B, and mutiply by
BW.

Solution Problem 2:
a. A mass balance on A over a spherical shell of thickness is (in molar unit)

or, equivalently

Now divide by and take the limit as goes to zero to get

This may be integrated to give

at

(the gas liquid interface) to evaluate the constant and obtain

.

b. Equation 18.0-1, written for the radial component in spherical coordinates, is

If gas B is not moving, then

, may be set equal to zero and the equation may be

solved for the molar flux of A:

Multiplying by

and using the result obtained in (a), we get Eq. 19B.7-1:

c. Equation 19B.7-1 can be arranged to give

Integration then gives

Or

]
This may be arranged to give

Or, when solved for the molar flux of A

When

(and presumably also

0), this last result gives

d. Mass transfer coefficient k
v
is defined by
