New to the forum and have a fairly simple problem.

I am looking for help in building an equation for volume lost in a container.

Example.

Known variables:

Container has a volume of 44 fl oz

Container will be pressurized to 6" of water column.

Container has an orifice with a .010" dia.

Once container has reached its 6.0" W.C. target pressure, the orifice will be opened for 2.8 seconds.

These are the only variables that can be determined.

How can I determine the % of volume of air lost in that 2.8 secs?

Can it be accomplished with information given?

I only need to find a close estimate so I am not really concerned with other variables such as Altitude, temp etc. I would prefer a clean/simple formula.

Thanks for any help.
