Sulfate Particulates

An estimate of sulfate particulate emissions for a given sulfur content in the fuel and (catalytic) conversion of sulfur dioxide. The formation of sulfate particulates is discussed in the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst paper. This calculation follows Eqns.(6) - (10) from the paper.
