Consider a channel or passage connecting compartments A and B that is wide enough so that two particles in the channel can pass one another. It is the purpose of this paper to derive the laws governing the flow of particles in either direction through such a channel. The position of a particle in the channel can be found by projecting the centers of all the particles onto the axis of the channel. If a particular point is k from the left, then the particle to whose center the point corresponds is in the kth position. The assumption is that the centers of any two particles will project onto different points of the axis.
