Particles of this size and smaller can penatrate the respirable portion of the lungs.
<= 4 micrometers
What is mist/fog?
liquid aerosols created through the condensation of gas to liquid, that are between 0.1 and 200 micrometers
What is vapour?
gaseous state of a substanceat room temperature
Law of conservation of mass states...
rate of mass flow into the duct system equals the rate of mass flow out.
Define Static Pressure:
the pressure in the duct that tends to burst or collapse the duct
Define velocity pressure:
is the representation of kinetic energy of an air stream
Change is static pressure is due to:
mostly due to friction (duct wall friction, friction due to hood configuration, elbows, branch or wye fitting, contraction, filter bag)
