  1. the amount of volume of air that moves past a fixed point in a given amount of time.
    Airflow
  2. Pounds Per Minute (PPM)
    Cubic Feet Per Minute (CFM)
    Measurement Scales: Airflow
  3. Airflow is ______ affected by air pressure
    inversely
  4. the FORCE that pushes air through tubing or ducting.
    Air Pressure
  5. the AMOUNT or volume of air that moves.
    Airflow
  6. *If air pressure is _______ airflow will _______.*
    increase, decrease
  7. smooth, thin, parallel layers of airĀ  streamlined airflow
    Laminar
  8. Non-smooth, whirling airflow- creates resistance, loss of energy, and increases heat.
    Turbulent
  9. + maintains laminar airflow

    -Limits amount of airflow
    -Prevents starvation of air sources (i.e. engines)
    -Protects components downstream
    Venturi
  10. ***
    Inlet- high pressure, low velocity
    Throat- low pressure, high velocity
    Outlet- high pressure, low velocity
    ***
    Composition of the Venturi
  11. +limits amount of airflow

    -Limits amount of airflow
    -Flat disc with center or multiple holes
    -Creates turbulent airflow
    -Creates resistance and loss of energy
    Orifice
