The **Time to Produce or Consume a Weight or Mass** calculator computes the period of time (**`p`**) needed to process a total mass or weight of material (**MW**) at a mass processing rate. The processing rate is a unit of mass (**vU**) and the time to produce or consume the unit (**dU**) (e.g. 5.6 grams every 22 minutes).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**vU**) Unit Mass or Weight (e.g. 3.2 pounds) - (
**dU**) Duration of Time to process the Unit Mass (e.g. 2.4 seconds per 3.2 pounds) - (
**MW**) Total amount to be processed over time (e.g. 72 tons)

**Time to Process Mass or Weight (T): **The calculator returns the time required to process the total amount (MW) at the set rate (vU/dU) in hours. However this can be automatically converted to other time units (seconds, minutes, days or years) via the pull-down menu. To compute the Mass or Weight processed over a Period of Time, **CLICK HERE**.

You want to know how long it will take (**p**) to manufacture 45 tons (**v**) of flour if your machine can process 2.2 pounds (**vU**) every 3 minutes (**dU**). The answer would be 85.22 days.

The Production Calculator computes the cost in time or capital to buy, produce or consume commodities measured by number of units or by length, area, volume or weight. It provides automatic conversions between different units for time, length, area, volume, mass and up to date currency conversions between several international currencies.
