The **Length Produced, Consumed or Covered over Time** calculator computes the linear distance or length produced or consumed over a period of time based on the unit of length (**`lU`**), time to produce or consume the unit (**`dU`**) and the period (**`p`**) of production or consumption.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose your preferred length and time units and enter the following:

- (
**lU**) This is the length unit (e.g. 4.5 meters) - (
**dU**) This is the amount of time to produce or consume the unit of length (e.g. 2.3 hours to product 4.5 meters) - (
**P**) This is the period of production (e.g. 72 hours)

**Total Length (TL): **The **Total Length** is computed in meters (m). However, this can be automatically converted to many other length units via the pull-down menu. Tocompute the time to produce or consume a length based on a unit length (lU) and time to produce a unit length (dU)**, CLICK HERE.**

**Units over Time**: Compute number of units produced in that period .**Time for Units**: Compute the period of time (T) needed to process the number of units.**Length over Time**: Compute the Total Length processed over time.**Time for Length**: Computes the Total Period (P) required required to process the length.**Area over Time**: Compute the Total Area (TA) processed in the Total Period.**Time for Area**: Computes the Total Period (P) required to process the Total Area.**Volume over Time**: Compute the Total Volume (TV) processed in the Total Period.**Time for Volume**: Computes the total time period (P) required to process the Volume.- To make length or distance unit conversions, CLICK HERE.
- To compute the total price of something base on a cost per unit length, CLICK HERE.
- To price compare the cost of two items priced by length, CLICK HERE.
- To price compare the cost of three items priced by length, CLICK HERE.
- To estimate the time to produce, consume or travel a length or distance, CLICK HERE.

Production and consumption of materials or distance traveled over time can be estimated or measured based on the average movement, production or consumption rate of a unit. This calculator measures the units as lengths such as inches, miles, kilometer or nano-meters. With this calculator you can determine how much length is traversed, used, covered, produced or consumed over time.

Production examples:

- 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. - Ship that sales 122 nautical miles(
**`lU`**) at sea every day(**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you how many nautical miles will have been traveled in five days (**`p`**). The answer is 610 NMI.

Consumption examples:

- the fabric 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. - the country that loses 12.6 km(
**`lU`**) of coastline to rising sea-level every year(**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you how much coast will be lost in 30 years (**`p`**). The answer is 378 kilometers (234.8 miles).

- Production / Consumption Area - Measures Area over time
- Production / Consumption Volume - Measures Volume over time
