Yes.
 
Use a 'wherein' clause to specify an effect or result produced by the arrangement, construction, and/or operation of already recited elements.
 
Use a 'whereby' clause or 'thereby' clause to specify to specify the necessary consequences of the arrangement, construction, and/or operation of already recited elements.
