Particle-gas mass transfer under plasma conditions

A simple analytical method is proposed for particle-gas mass transfer calculations under plasma conditions. This method, called the Z-potential method, fully accounts for the temperature variation of the gas transport properties while permitting use of the convenient isothermal expression Sh = 2.0. The Z-potential approach is also found to be extremely useful in ascertaining the Knudsen discontinuum effect on mass transfer between the plasma gas and a small particle. A predictive model for the Knudsen effect, developed by combining the Z-potential approach with the jump theory, is illustrated in detail by means of a case study on a nitrogen plasma system. © 1986.
