The assessment is both clinical and by measurement of the partial pressures of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Since the liquid phase acts as a capacitor for C[O.sub.2] and the vapour phase acts as a capacitor for [O.sub.2], changes in the amount of blood injected can be expected to affect the partial pressure of [O.sub.2].
Both in arc and plasma melting (Figure 3), as partial pressure of nitrogen in gas phase grows, its equilibrium (threshold) concentration in the metal and rate of nitrogen absorption by niobium increases.
Using the first model, the diffusion coefficients are evaluated by means of a curve-fitting procedure, by fitting the experimental change during the time of partial pressure with the solution of Fick's equation [2-4].
The resultant increased partial pressure is related to the concentration of hydrogen in the melt.
Measuring the partial pressure of oxygen in brain tissue (Pb[O.sub.2]) is the most current attempt to accurately assess brain tissue oxygenation.
The partial pressure of C[O.sub.2] in air also diminishes in proportion to P, while the mole fraction of C[O.sub.2] is almost constant.
The French physical chemist Francois-Marie Raoult (1830-1901) showed in 1886 that the partial pressure of solvent vapors in equilibrium with a solution is directly proportional to the ratio of the number of solvent molecules to solute molecules.
