Consider a chemical species A, which is soluble in water. The equilibrium of this system with A in air is described by the following question:

C(air) = HC(water)

where C(air) is mass concentration of the species in air

C(water) is the mass concentration in water, and the Henrys Law constant is H=0.00070(dimensionless)

the film mass transfer coefficient for the air side is 0.07m/s, and the water side is 8x10^-6 m/s

Answer the following, assuming the air stream contains 10 mol% of A at 100KPa and the aqueous solution contains 5 mass% of A at 25C...and use 17g/mol for molar mass of the species

A) What is the mass driving force for the mass transfer, in mass concentration units, viewed from the gas phse?

I used C=PM/RT=100000*0.017/8.314*(273+25)=0.069 kg/m^3

What is the mass transfer rate( express as mass flux)?

Here i use

N=KC

where K=1/k + H/k2=5.33*10^-3 m/s

Could someone assist me in this question...Any suggestions
