Gany ,

Let you try google to support your query ! Your question is too vague ( could be for packing in absorption tower , for catalyst,etc).

Dear

Mass transfer is based on the Specific Surface area of packing (Either structure or random packing). Higher the Specific surface area of packing more will be the mass transfer and more will be the pressure
