Calculating gas flow trough a pipe and a nozzle

Hello there. I am struggling with some gas flow calculations that, I think, should be quite basic. However, I think that I miss the knowledge background for it.

I have a setup that I am showing in the attached file but here are more details:
-I have a vacuum chamber pumped with a turbo pump to a few 10-5 mbar.
-A gas ligne brings a noble gas into the chamber.
-The gas is delivered through a micro-pipette.
-The micro-pipette diameter is 100um where the gas leaves the nozzle for the chamber and this diameter is slowly increasing until it is 2mm at the other side of the micro-pipette where it is connected to the gas line.
-On the gas line, just before the ligne goes into the vacuum chamber, there is a manometer.

I would like to calculate the gas flow rate from the pressure measured on the manometer but I don't know how to proceed because it can be very different depending on the flow type etc. and I don't know how to determine the flow type. Does someone has any idea how I should do? Any reference book would be very welcome too.

Thanks in advence.
