column and to determine the volumetric mass transfer coefficients. In this experiment, the liquid (water) flow rate was changed for each run ranging from 1000 ml/min to 0 ml/min in a total of 11 runs. However, the gas (CO 2 ) inlet flow rate was kept constant at 680 ml/min. The corresponding gas outlet flow rate was measured (for run1: 38 mm Head = 278 ml/min). It was observed that there is a decrease in the gas outlet flow rate, which occurred due to absorption. The quantity absorbed is the difference between the inlet and outlet gas flow rates (680 – 278 = 204 ml/min). The mass transfer coefficient depends on the area of the column. The volumetric liquid side mass transfer coefficient (K L a) was determined experimentally (3.89x10 -4 s -1 ) and theoretically (1.5x10 -2 s -1 ). Also, the height of the liquid phase transfer unit (H
