    what is the equation for a known leak rate below?
    is it just L.R. = PL V / t ?
    and how do I breakdown the values below to fit the equation into Kelvin, Pascals...etc...
    its been a very long time since I've looked at something like this and would appreciate any help.


    leak rate (scc/m) = 0.459
    V of part (cc) = 178.2
    Time (sec) = 8
    Pressure Loss (psi) = .008
    Atmosphere (psi) = 23.3


    Thanks for any help.

    b

    Ok if any one can provide the correct equation in full I'll send them I'll send them a check for $25.00.
    But its has to be correct and complete.

    any takers?
    thanks
