Cisco 6513 / 7609 Modules vs. Slots

I can do a "show modules" which gives me module numbers.  Is there a relationship between the module number and the slot?  How can I tell which slot a given module is installed into? Thanks!

Up to the number of physical slots, a show mod will correlate to the slot number. Module numbers greater than the slot number is a virtual slot.

For example, in the hybrid mode 6513 the supervisor was installed in slot 1. And it displayed as module 1. The MSFC was installed on the supervisor yet displayed as module 15.

Another command that you can use is "show inventory".

Thanks I ran the show inventory - I guess what I am really trying to do is identify if there are any open slots (without driving out to physically look at it).  Is there a command that will do that? I did a show ver and it is a WS-C6513.  I tried to google how many slots it would have but it isn;t clear to me how to tell.  Thanks again for your help.

On the 6500's, the last two digits indicate how many slots. i.e. 6506 has six slots. 6509 has nine. And the 6513 has thirteen slots.

Thanks again, I appreciate it very much. If there is a direct correspondence up to the number of physical slots, that would mean that is the show modules says 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9 are defined that must mean that slots 6,10,11,12,13 are not in use.  Is that the correct way to look at it?
