Short summary
In light of the widespread use of chemical reactors that simulate daytime atmospheric chemistry, a more critical analysis of the engineering behind new ones is needed. This work seeks to evaluate the geometry and flow dynamics inside a novel reactor, the potential aerosol mass (PAM) reactor, to help researchers tailor its use based upon what chemistry is investigated.
