The Diffusion Flow to a Rotating Line Electrode

Department of Mathematics, Prague Institute of Chemical Technology, 166 28 Prague 6, Czech Republic


A mathematical model for convective diffusion to the so-called line electrode was solved by combination of the analytical and numerical approaches. All terms of the diffusion equation were respected. A semiempirical formula was derived, extending appreciably its applicability with respect to the decisive physical and geometric parameters.
