A Test tube, 1.5 Cm in diameter and 12cm long, has 0.4g camphor on it. How long will it take for the camphor (C,H,O) does disappear? The pressure is atmospheric and the temperature is 200C. The sublimation pressure of camphor at this temperature is 97.5 mmHg and the diffusivity of camphor can be estimated by using the fuller' equation. Diffusion volumes: C-16.4, H=1.98, O-5.48, Air 20.1?
It implies that it will take 15.39 hours for it to disappear
