Formula Used
Lewis Number = Heat Diffusivity/Mass Diffusivity
Le = Hd/Md
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Lewis Number - The Lewis Number is a dimensionless number defined as the ratio of thermal diffusivity to mass diffusivity.
Heat Diffusivity - (Measured in Square Meter Per Second) - Heat diffusivity is the thermal conductivity divided by density and specific heat capacity at constant pressure.
Mass Diffusivity - (Measured in Square Meter Per Second) - Mass diffusivity is a proportionality constant between the molar flux due to molecular diffusion and the gradient in the concentration of the species.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Heat Diffusivity: 0.5 Square Meter Per Second --> 0.5 Square Meter Per Second No Conversion Required

Lewis Number Formula

Lewis Number = Heat Diffusivity/Mass Diffusivity
Le = Hd/Md

What is Convection?

Convection is the process of heat transfer by the bulk movement of molecules within fluids such as gases and liquids. The initial heat transfer between the object and the fluid takes place through conduction, but the bulk heat transfer happens due to the motion of the fluid.
