If you pressurize a tube 2 inches long versus 24 inches long it doesn't matter.
exactly...the only thing that changes is volume with the size of the tube...you can push more air down a 4 inch pipe versus a 2 inch pipe...now if your talking compression its better to run a smaller diameter tube which in turn creates less work over a longer tube. Make the same length tube bigger in diameter and the energy needed to fill the extra space is created. Pressure is pressure when it comes to length..not so much when it comes to diameters
