The dynamics of evaporation from the confined surface of a horizontal layer of liquid (ethanol) under the action of a gas (air) flow has been experimentally studied. The influence of the longitudinal dimension of the interface (0.01–0.03 m) on the specific mass rate of evaporation was studied. It was found that the specific mass evaporation rate decreases with an increase in the interface length due to a decrease in the vapor concentration gradient in the boundary layer.
