a) Z2
b) Z2-z1
c) 1/z2-z1
d) Z1-z2
Explanation: The molar diffusion flux for a plane wall with thickness z2-z1 is Dab(ca1-ca2)/ z2-z1.

a) 4r1r2/r2-r1
b) r2-r1/4r1r2
c) r1r2/r2-r1
d) 2r1r2/r2-r1
Explanation: The molar diffusion flux for a spherical shell with inner radius r1 and outer radius r2 is 4r1r2 Dab(ca1-ca2)/r2-r1.

4 - Question

For which mass transfer the area log mean is considered?
a) Through a sphere
b) Through a cylinder
c) Through a wall
d) Through a ball
Explanation: The mass transfer through a cylinder is given by the formula 2Lab(ca1-ca2)/ ln(r2/r1).Hence log mean of the area is considered.

5 - Question

For which mass transfer the area geometric mean is considered?
a) Through a sphere
b) Through a cylinder
c) Through a wall
d) Through a pipe
Explanation: The molar diffusion flux for a spherical shell with inner radius r1 and outer radius r2 is 4r1r2 Dab(ca1-ca2)/r2-r1.Hence the geometric mean area is considered.

6 - Question

The molar diffusion rate of A in stationary B in only z direction is given by:
a) DabA(ΔCa/Δz)
b) DabA(Δz)
c) -DabA(ΔCa/Δz)
d) DabA(ΔCa)
Explanation: The molar diffusion rate of A in stationary B in only z direction is given by -DabA(ΔCa/Δz).

7 - Question

For one dimensional diffusion in the radial direction only for cylinder and sphere, the fick’s second law becomes:
a) ΔCa/ΔT= Dab/r(Δ/Δr(rΔCa/Δr)
b) ΔCa/ΔT= Dab/(Δ/Δr(ΔCa/Δr)
c) -ΔCa/ΔT= Dab/r(Δ/Δr(rΔCa/Δr)
d) ΔCa/ΔT= Dab/r(Δ/Δr(r/Δr)
Explanation: For one dimensional diffusion in the radial direction only for cylinder and sphere, the fick’s law becomes ΔCa/ΔT= Dab/r(Δ/Δr(rΔCa/Δr).
