Schmidt Number, Sc, is a dimensionless parameter representing the ratio of diffusion of momentum to the diffusion of mass in a fluid. It is defined as

where ν is kinematic viscosity and δ diffusivity.

Schmidt number is the mass transfer equivalent of Prandtl Number. For gases, Sc and Pr have similar values (≈0.7) and this is used as the basis for simple heat and mass transfer analogies (see Analogy Between Heat, Mass and Momemtum Transfer).
