Abstract: Condensation is one of the important phenomenon in Chemical Engineering. It is the crucial component of distillation. It is often use for the production of water for human use and crucial process in the forming of cloud chamber. DNA condensation also plays an essential role for functioning process of Gene Regulation and one of the important process in surface condensing and Phase Transition processes. Due to condensation importance in Chemical Industry this review study is done. The aim of this Research is to study the effect of flow rate and temperature difference on the heat transfer coefficient during film and Dropwise condensation. For this purpose the experiment is performed in a Film and Dropwise Condensation Unit and the effect of flow rate and temperature difference on heat transfer coefficient is studied. To analyze our experimental data graphical method is used and the results show that low temperature difference and high flow rate favors the both Dropwise Condensation as well as Filmwise Condensation.
