Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Conductance Consider the molecular flow of gas through an orifice of area A that separates two chambers maintained at pressure P 1 and P 2 . A flow driven by the pressure difference can be expressed as Q = C (P 1 – P 2 ) where Q = throughput in torr-liters/sec, and C is the conductance of the orifice with units of liters/sec. When conductances are joined in series, the total system conductance is given by 1/C sys = 1/C 1 + 1/C 2 +1/C 3 ….. When conductances are joined in parallel, the total system conductance is given by C sys =C 1 + C 2 + C 3 + ….

Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Gas Flow Regimes Gas Flow => Net directed movement of gas in a system under the influence of attached pumps. Typical unit of gas flow is standard cubic cm per minute or sccm . The Knudsen number Kn is defined as the ratio of the gas mean free path to a characteristic dimension of the system (e.g. chamber or pipe diameter D p ). Kn = λ mfp / D p Molecular flow: Kn > 1 Intermediate flow: 1> Kn > 0.01 Viscous flow: Kn < 0.01

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
