The dissolution of a single stationary bubble held in place by a horizontal plate is commonly observed experimentally. For several decades the standard approach to the analysis of such dissolution data has been to apply a correction factor of ln(2)=0.69ln(2)=0.69 to the Epstein–Plesset equation for an isolated bubble. In this paper, the transport equations for a stationary bubble touching a plate are solved numerically for the common case where the flow field caused by the change in system volume as the bubble dissolves can be neglected. It is found that the total bubble lifetime is not well characterised by the use of the ln(2)ln(2) factor. However, in most experimental situations, the initial stages of bubble dissolution are not captured. For low gas solubilities the use of a correction factor of 0.69 to the Epstein–Plesset equation is appropriate once the initial transients have dissipated. The correction factor varies from 0.69 to 0.77 across the full range of situations described in this paper. The mathematical model is validated by comparison to experimental data.
