# Schmidt Number Calculator

The Schmidt Number is used to characterize fluid flows in which there are simultaneous momentum and mass diffusion convection processes.

#### Input

#### Output

#### Formula

**v**= Kinematic Viscosity**Dc**= Mass Diffusivity**Sc**= Schmidt Number

#### Defination / Uses

The Schmidt Number is named after Ernst Heinrich Wilhelm Schmidt, a German engineer (1892-1975). The ratio of momentum diffusivity or viscosity to mass diffusivity is known as the Schmidt number, which is a dimensionless quantity. The symbol "Sc" stands for the Schmidt Number. The Schmidt Number is proportional to the thickness of the hydrodynamic and mass-transfer boundary layers.

### How to use schmidt number calcultor?

There are only two basic steps.

- First select the option from dropdown. What you need to calculate.
- Then add the other values in their corresponding fields.

Thats it! You will get your answer in just a second.

To quantify fluid flows involving simultaneous momentum and mass diffusion convection processes, the Schmidt number formula is used. The ratio of momentum diffusivity (kinematic viscosity) to mass diffusivity is referred to as kinematic viscosity. Schmidt Number is represented by the symbol Sc.
