Abstract : An analytic study is made of the flow of a rarefied monatomic gas through a two dimensional slot. The parameters of the problem are the ratios of downstream to upstream pressures, the Knudsen number at the high pressure end (based on slot half width) and the length to slot half width ratio. A moment method of solution is used, and numerical solutions are obtained for the resulting equations. (Author)
