    Default ya que ...

    I want to write the following sentence in English:

    Esto se debe al hecho de que las paredes provocan que el fluido se mueva mas facilmente alrededor de la particula ya que el espacio disponible entre la pared y la particula es muy pequeno para que el fluido fluya.

    My attempt is:

    That could be due to the wall which induces that the fluid move easier around the particle since the available space between the wall and the particles is very small and then the fluid cannot flow.

    My version would be:

    This occurs as a consequece of the fact that the walls make the fluid flow easier around the particle since there is not much room between the wall and the particles and the fluid cannot flow.

    Anyway its better to wait for a native speaker's corrections.

    The expression, there is not much room, does not sound good for me and also with space.
    There is a better word to say espacio in english.

    This is due to the fact that the walls allow the fluid move around the particle more easily because the available space between the wall and the particle is very small and this increases the flow.

    ***I don't understand how a smaller space would increase the flow, but isn't that what the original in Spanish is saying? Maybe the original is not clearly written???***

    No, I smaller space cannot increase the flow. Due to the smaller space, the fluid cannot flow.

    Maybe it is better now:
    This is due to the fact that the walls allow the fluid flow around the particle more easily because the available space between the wall and the particle is very small and therefore the fluid cannot flow.

    para que el fluido fluya

    Doesn't this mean:
    so that the fluid flows?

    You are right! The expression alone means so that the fluid flows. But in my context:

    El espacio (entre la pared y la particula) es tan pequeno que no permite al fluido fluir en ese lugar, sino que ha de fluir alrededor de la particula.

    Quiza no me haya expresado correctamente en espanol. No se si ahora esta mas claro.

    Can you please include the sentence prior. It would shed light on what is improving the flow in an already limited space.

    Here the preceding sentence:

    When a particle is close to a wall, the force exerted on the particle is larger, and consequently, the diffusion coefficient is smaller than if the particle is far away from the wall.

    But I don't think that it can help to understand.

    This is due to the fact that the walls allow the fluid move around the particle more easily because the available space between the wall and the particle is very small and this obstructs the flow.
