AIR. That fluid transparent substance which surrounds our globe.
     2. No property can be had in the air it belongs equally to all men, being indispensable to their existence. To poison or materially to change the air, to the annoyance of the public, is a nuisance. Cro. Cr. 610; 2 Ld. Raym 1163; I Burr. 333; 1 Str. 686 Hawk. B. 1, c. 75, s. 10; Dane's Ab. Index h.t. But this must be understood with this qualification, that no one has a right to use the air over another man's land, in such a manner as to be injurious to him. See 4 Campb. 219; Bowy. Mod. Civ. Law, 62; 4 Bouv. Inst. n. 36 1; Grot. Droit de la Guerre et de la Paix, liv. 2, c. 2, Sec. 3, note, 3 et 4.
     3. It is the right of the proprietor of an estate to enjoy the light and air that will come to him, and, in general, no one has a right to deprive him of them; but sometimes in building, a man opens windows over his neighbor's ground, and the latter, desirous of building on his own ground, necessarily stops the windows already built, and deprives the first builder of light and air; this he has the right to do, unless the windows are ancient lights, (q.v.) or the proprietor has acquired a right by grant or prescription to have such windows open. See Crabb on R. P. Sec. 444 to 479 and Plan. Vide Nuisance.

They carried out diverse parametric studies, including the effect of water and air flow rates on the water temperature difference and tower characteristic, for several inlet water temperatures.
These analyses further indicate the entrainment of the surrounding air into the sterile zone occurs independent of supply air flow rates, as it occurs at all three levels of the supply airflow rates.
In the related experimental study, effects of the controllable parameters including indoor and outdoor air flow rates, and compressor speed has been investigated.
The sizes of "dead zone" at different depths for various air flow rates for the retort equipped with the new gas inlet structure are estimated and compared (Table 2).
Using the values of mass transfer coefficient, percentage of evaporated liquid in the net liquid flow is calculated and shown in terms of ratio of liquid to air flow rates in Fig.

The decrease of molecular weight at higher air flow rates may be attributed to the suppression of thermal degradation of the fiber because the fiber temperature is reduced by the cooling effect of air blowing.
