I would like some help on how to calculate (or an equation to use) to figure out if a vent hole the size of 5 inches is large enough to prevent a vessel from pressurizing. The vessel is 2170ft^3 and the airflow being pumped into the vessel is 80lbs/min. The vessel in at 80 degrees F and at sea level. How do I go about calculating to find out if the vent size of 5 in is enough to prevent the vessel to over pressurize? Please also let me know if I need to provide more information.
