What is Heat Transfer?
Heat transfer is a discipline of thermal engineering that concerns the generation, use, conversion, and exchange of thermal energy between physical systems. Heat transfer is classified into various mechanisms, such as thermal conduction, thermal convection, thermal radiation, and transfer of energy by phase changes.
How to Calculate Film Thickness in Film Condensation?
Film Thickness in Film Condensation calculator uses Film Thickness = ((4*Viscosity of Film*Thermal Conductivity*Height of Film*(Saturated Temperature-Plate Surface Temperature))/([g]*Latent Heat of Vaporization*(Density of Liquid)*(Density of Liquid-Density of Vapor)))^(0.25) to calculate the Film Thickness, The Film Thickness in Film Condensation formula is function of viscosity of film, thermal conductivity, height of film, saturated temp, plate surface temp, latent heat of vaporization, density of liquid, density of vapor etc. Film Thickness is denoted by δ symbol.
How to calculate Film Thickness in Film Condensation using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Film Thickness in Film Condensation, enter Viscosity of Film (μ_{f}), Thermal Conductivity (k), Height of Film (x), Saturated Temperature (T_{Sat}), Plate Surface Temperature (T_{w}), Latent Heat of Vaporization (h_{fg}), Density of Liquid (ρ) & Density of Vapor (ρ_{v}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Film Thickness in Film Condensation calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.000984 = ((4*0.029*10.18*0.06*(373-82))/([g]*2260000*(997)*(997-0.5)))^(0.25).
