Effect of Temperature on Water Diffusion in Soybean

Authors


ABSTRACT

Influence of temperature on the concentration-dependent diffusivity of water into soybean was investigated. At a constant water content, Arrhenius relation existed between the water diffusivity and temperature. The activation energy for diffusion was found to be between 9 and 13 Kcal/mole. The activation energy also was found to vary linearly with the water content.
