# 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: P**aving 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.**Cost**It costs approximately $52 dollars (New Zealand) per square meter of carpet installed. This calculator will tell you how much it would cost to have carpet installed on an area of 29.6 meters squared.

### Consumption examples

**Volume: A**town that consumes 670 liters (**`vU`**) of water every day(**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you how much water would be consumed in 90 days (**`p`**). The answer is 60300.0 Liters.**Area: A**clothing factory that uses 78 square yards (**`aU`**) of silk fabrtaylor university computer scienceic every month (**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you how much silk is used on every 18 hour (**`p`**) duty cycle. The answer is 1.92 square yards.taylor university computer science**Length:**A thread factory that uses 7800 meters(**`lU`**) of silk thread every month (**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you how much silk thread is used on every 18 hour (**`p`**) duty cycle. The answer is 19.2 meters.**Units:**A hospital that uses 1,400 20 ml syringes (**`U`**) every six months(**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you how many are needed every week(**`p`**). The answer is 53.66 syringes per week.**Cost**A boys and girls camp consumes 245 gallons of milk per month in the summer. How much will one month's worth of milk cost at $0.75 per pint.
