The relative efficiencies of the multistage and one stage process in the electrolytic preparation of heavy water

  • V. T. Chiplonkar


A quantitative estimate has been given on the basis of Urey’s equation, of the decrease in efficiency in the electrolytic separation of heavy water (assumed to be present in small proportions) due to the continual addition of fresh-water in terms of the variables involved. It is shown that compared with a single stage process, there will beno less in efficiency, if fresh-water be addedcontinuously. A relation connecting the decrease in efficiency with the relative magnitude of the step has been derived.
