Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Do you know the flow in some other units, either volume or moles per second.

If you know volume flow rate, you could use ideal gas equation, PV = nRT, to convert to moles/sec, and then molecular weight to grams/sec.

If you don't know the flow, I don't see how to proceed. Of the gas just stays in a container (with no hole) regardless of temperature and pressure, there is no flow (basis of tires, footballs, etc.)
