    Feed vs feeding

    Dear teachers

    Which one of these sentences do you think is better?

    Feed of air into the room
    Feeding of air into the room.


    There is a room that is fed air so the pressure inside increases!

    THank you!

    Neither of those are sentences. Post the entire proposed sentence so we can help you.

    Re: Feed vs feeding

    I'm sorry. They are indeed not sentences. They are topics. I'm writing a document that explains what happens when air is forced into an empty room!

    Thank you!

    Re: Feed vs feeding

    I would use "feeding" if you are describing the process of feeding air into the pressurized room.

    If you are discussing the air itself, or the system (pumps/pipes) that supplies it, you might talk of the "feed" of air.
