travel time, t tv in flame emission and absorption spectrometry, in analytical chemistry

https://dx.doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.T06493
The time needed for the component to be carried from the burner tip to the observation space (in s). Travel time depends on the observation height and the flame rise velocity.
