Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) References Examples

Description

Schmidt number is temperature dependant, and is the ratio of the kinematic viscosity of water to a diffusion coefficient. Coefficients are included for He, O2, CO2, CH4, SF6, N2O, Ar, and N2.

Usage

1
getSchmidt(temperature, gas)

Arguments

temperature

Numeric vector of water temperatures in deg. Celsius

gas

String for gas code. Valid inputs include: He, O2, CO2, CH4, SF6, N2O, Ar, and N2

Value

Schmidt number (unitless)

Note

Temperature range is only valid from 4-35 deg Celsius
