Educational Uses of COMSOL Multiphysics: Carbon Dioxide Absorption with Chemical Reaction Public

Experimental procedures were developed to investigate an energy balance discrepancy between experimental data and theoretical predictions in a simple absorption system. Additional procedures were utilized to determine empirical correlations for mass transfer coefficients in a system with absorption and liquid phase chemical reaction. Data from both experiments was used to create a two-film model in COMSOL Multiphysics representing concentration profiles within an absorption and reaction system. Such a model will serve as a teaching aid allowing students to perform a virtual experiment when laboratory restrictions prevent them from investigating this type of absorption through conventional experimental methods.
