I feel like this is easy to answer but I'm coming up with answers I don't trust. Basically, I have a tank of air where I want to keep the pressure at a certain value. Let's say 1 psig for the sake of argument. I have a 1/2" ID hose connecting to inlet flow to the tank and an outlet hose of 3/4" ID flow. What flow of air at the inlet do I need to stabilize the pressure in the tank to 1psig? How I'm going about this is treating the outlet hose as an orifice in the tank - which there are equations for and I calculate the flow through the orifice assuming 1psig in the tank and thereby getting the flow at the inlet. Logically, i think it's correct but I also feel like I'm missing something. Any thoughts?
