Balances are one of the most important tools in Transport Phenomena. In this subsection, we’ll dive a little deeper into this. Since you now know how to set up a balance in general, it is time to introduce you to the mass balance.

First, the universal approach of using a mass balance is shown, followed by various example mass transfer processes, taken from large industrial processes to small-scale processes in human cells.

After today, you will be able to set up a mass balance and solve basic problems involving mass transfers.
