Collisions With Container
One can calculate the number of atomic or molecular collisions with a wall of a container per unit area per unit time.
Assuming an ideal gas, a derivation results in an equation for total number of collisions per unit time per area:
This quantity is also known as the "impingement rate" in vacuum physics.
Famous quotes containing the word container:
“A book is simply the container of an idealike a bottle; what is inside the book is what matters.”
