Default Re: A finer draw + thicker smoke..

It's actually a sol, but regardless. I'm unsure of why the gas las would be applicable here even, but assuming the pressure is the suction from your lungs than the volume would be same, but that is not true as the hoses are different containers an therefore hold different volumes as you have to apply more pressure through a smaller hose to get the volume. Don't think of it mathematically, you're pulling harder through a smaller hose which causes the same amount of smoke to condense through the smaller opening, increasing the density.
I have no idea if that made sense, it was mostly stream of thought writing so we'll see how it turns out.
