54 cm · 2 in. 11 g/day. (b) To estimate the amount of fuel lost by advective “pumping,” consider that the amount of air leaving the tank can be estimated from the fact that the mass of air in the tank is proportional to pressure. 5 g octane. 5 in. 3% of original mass. 041 g. 48 Chapter 1 Basic Concepts Note that temperature changes, as well as atmospheric pressure changes, can cause fuel loss by pumping air into and out of the tank. Loss via pumping is proportional to the empty volume in the tank, and can be minimized by keeping the tank full.

2 cm2/sec, and in water of about 10Ϫ5 cm2/sec. Molecular diffusion increases in magnitude at higher temperatures and for smaller molecules or particles (which, at any given temperature, have higher average speeds than larger molecules or particles). Molecular diffusion sets the lower limit on the amount of Fickian mixing that can be expected in a fluid. The total Fickian transport coefficient equals the sum of the contributing Fickian coefficients due to molecular diffusion, turbulent diffusion, and mechanical dispersion.

Note that the integration of Eq. [1-18] leads to Eq. [1-19]. From Eq. 693 . k Note that half-lives convey exactly the same information as first-order decay rate constants, but may be more intuitive to some users. Half-lives for different decay processes may be easily compared to determine which decay mechanism is the most significant; they may also be compared with a transport 34 Chapter 1 Basic Concepts time to determine whether a high or low chemical concentration will remain at a point downstream or downwind of a chemical source.
