nA,B / A = k cavg cA i − cA o

Subject: Sublimation of a straight, circular tube of naphthalene (A) into air (B) at 100oC (373
K) and 1 atm that flows through it in laminar flow.
Given: Tube diameter, D, is 5 cm (0.05 m). Reynolds number = NRe = 1,500. Physical
properties in Example 3.14.
Assumptions: Fully established laminarflow velocity profile for air entering the tube.
Negligible pressure drop. Equilibrium at naphthaleneair interface.
Find: Tube length, x, for average naphthalene mole fraction in exiting air, yA L , to equal 0.005.
Analysis: From Example 3.14, yA i = PAs / P = 10 / 760 = 0.0132
By material balance for sublimation of naphthalene into air, the rate of mass transfer over the
tube length must be:
nA = ux S cA x − cA 0
(1)
This rate of mass transfer is given by (3105), which with a logmean driving force is,
nA = k cavg A cA i − cA
ln 0 − cA i − cA cA i − cA (2) 0 cA i − cA x x For the entering air, cA 0 = 0. Therefore, combining Eqs. (1) and (2), and solving for k cavg ,
k cavg = cA i − cA

For laminar flow, Eq. (3150) applies, which contains the Peclet number, Eq. (3102):
N Pe M = N Re N Sc = (1,500)(2.41) = 3,620 From Eq. (3150), using the definition of the Sherwood number in Eq. (3148), but for average
