Following EBM metal vaporisation loss of vacuum leading to loss of beam quality


With the density of metallic Ti 4.5 g/cm3 the above volume amounts to 3.6x10-6 g. And with a molar mass of Ti 204.37 g/mol it is 1.76x10-8 mol. Now: ONE mole of a gas takes a volume of 24 Liter at a pressure of 1 atmosphere or 101,325 Pa = 1013.25 millibar. Relative to this an amount of 1.76x10-8 mol vaporized titanium in a 1000 L (1 m3) volume will pr second contribute to the pressure with the following value
