Fundamentals of Convective Mass Transfer

The transport of some material species (say A) from a high-concentration (CA high) to a low-concentration (CA low) region of a fluid in the presence of bulk/macroscopic motion of the fluid is referred to as “convective mass transfer.” The transport of material species between a boundary surface (solid or liquid) and a fluid moving adjacent to the boundary surface when there exists a gradient in concentration of species between the fluid and the boundary surface is also an example of “convective mass transfer.”
