In this lab, the rotating disk apparatus is used to study reactions between fluids and solid surfaces. It is one of the important tools to collectively study the effects of mass transfer and chemical reactions by varying rotational speed and reaction temperature. The entire range of kinetics from mass transfer limited to chemical reaction rate limited can be investigated using this apparatus.
