Rate constants for the evaporation of n-alkane components of Arctic Diesel 40, a No. 2 fuel oil, were determined by gas chromatography. Using a constant wind speed of 21 km/hr, the evaporation was studied at a series of temperatures (5 degree C, 10 degree C, and 30 degree C). Arrhenius activation energies were calculated. The rate constants and the initial concentration of the alkanes also were used to determine the amounts of the alkanes present at various time intervals. The data coincided with the evaporation behavior of the total oil. Such constants should aid in determining the oil remaining from spills on ice and on water.
