# Production and Consumption

Production and Consumption of materials requires time and money.  This library has very powerful tools to estimate production and consumption volumes over time based on the average production or consumption rate of a unit.   With these equations you can determine how much volume is produced, area covered, length traveled over time.

This library also has cost tools that use the same powerful units conversions to compute the total costs based on unit pricing for lengths (distances), areas and volumes.

### Production Examples

• Volume: Dairy that can process 4.5 gallons(vU) of milk every 45 minutes (dU).  This calculator can tell you how many gallons are produced in 36 hours (p).  The answer is 216 gallons.
• Area: Paving company that paves 450 square yards(aU) of black-top every 45 minutes (dU).  This calculator can tell you how much is paved in 36 hours (p).  The answer is 21,600 square yards or 4.46 acres.
• Length: Cable company that buries 450 yards(lU) of cable every 5 days(dU).  This calculator can tell you how much is cable is laid in 36 hours (p).  The answer is  135 yards.
• Units: Microchip company that produces 34 of a certain kind of microchip(U) every 3.25 minutes (dU).  This calculator can tell you how many chips are produced in 36 hours (p).  The answer is 22,596.92 chips.
