Since gas at low pressures has a large volume, vaccum pumps tend to be bulky A vacuum pump's main function is to change the pressure in a contained space to create a full or partial vacuum either mechanically or chemically. Pressure will always try to equalize across connected egions as gas molecules flow from high to low to fill the entire area of that volume
