# C132 – Sampler Control Pulse Check

## Description

This calculates the number of pulses expected for a volume or mass at a given pulse significance factor.

## References

Kelton calculation reference C132

KIMS calculation reference K162

## Options

### Sampler type

- Volume based

This option is chosen to perform the volume based calculation.

- Mass based

This option is chosen to perform the mass based calculation.

## Calculation

### Corrected something

When using the volume based method the number of pulses is calculated by:

Where | ||
---|---|---|

V_{E} |
= | Total volume at the end |

V_{S} |
= | Total volume at the start |

V_{P} |
Pulse significance factor |

When using the mass based method the number of pulses is calculated by:

Where | ||
---|---|---|

M_{E} |
= | Total mass at the end |

M_{S} |
= | Total mass at the start |

M_{P} |
Pulse significance factor |
