Hi all,
I am experimenting with the built-in tutorial counterFlowFlame2D (laminar).
When I plot the species concentration of a cell over time the species concentration don't add up to 1.
I would expect that the sum of concentrations would be 1 like in the starting conditions (N2 - 0.77, O2 - 0.23)

See plot attached that explains what I am trying to say.

Do you have any idea?
Thanks

I can't believe I made this mistake.
I plotted N instead of N2.
See attached revised plots.
