Conversion from mass fraction to volume fraction



This component converts mass fraction to volume fraction for an ideal gas. The default value for the parameter MMBul assumes that the bulk medium is air. The model assumes that the concentration of the measured substance is small enough to be neglected in the molar mass of the mixture.
