The purpose of this investigation is to determine the mass transfer from rotating wedge-shaped blades in an air environment. Through theoretical considerations, effect of negative pressure gradient has been emphasized wherever possible. The experimental results are correlated with local Sherwood number and Reynolds number. Furthermore, a new method has been proposed to judge the flow type by reading directly the slope of contour lines of equal sublimation drawn on the surface.
