Abstract

We theoretically investigated the momentum transfer and energy conversion process of ion-neutral and ensuing neutral-neutral collisions in the ion drift region of electrohydrodynamic flow. Our results are presented in explicit equations with physical interpretations of the phenomena. The unit conversion process was estimated to sustain for 1.0 nano-second in a very tiny 0.5-μm-sized volume in the air. Also, the continuum-based equation formulations are presented according to the microscopic energy conversion phenomena. Numerical simulations reflecting those formulations are performed to verify the theoretical results and experimentally supported by an air corona discharge.
