Summary

Oxygen transfer from a gas bubble into the surrounding liquid is examined by measuring oxygen pressure with Po2-needle electrodes at different distances from the bubble. From there, the mass transfer coefficient can be calculated. First measurements yielded results in the range to be expected.
