The Cost per Time calculator computes the total cost associated with a period of time based on cost per unit time.

INSTRUCTIONS:  Choose units and enter the following:

  • (CPT)  This is the cost per unit time (e.g. $2.34 Canadian per hour)
  • (TT) This is the period of production (e.g. 72 hours)

Total Cost(TC): The calculator returns the total cost in U.S. dollars.  However, this can be automatically converted to other currencies via the pull-down menu.
