The **Time to Cover, Produce or Consume an Area** calculator computes the amount of time needed to produce or consume and area based the rate (area per time unit) and the total area (**a**) of production or consumption. The rate is the unit of area (**aU**) and the time to produce or consume the unit (**dU**) (e.g. 2.2 km^{2}/ 5 years).

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

- (
**aU**) The unit area amount (e.g. 2.3 square yards) - (
**dU**) The time to process a unit area amount (e.g. 1.2 milliseconds) - (
**TA**) This is the total amount of area to be produced or consumed (e.g. 42 square kilometers)

**Time for Area (P):** The calculator will compute the total amount of time to process the area in seconds. However, this can be automatically converted to other time units (e.g. minutes, hours, days or years) via the pull-down menu. To compute the Total Area processed over a period of Time, **CLICK HERE**.

Production and consumption of materials over time can be estimated or measured based on the average production or consumption rate of a unit. This calculator compute the time required to produce or consume based on the rate and total area.

**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 perform area unit conversions, CLICK HERE.

Area is a two dimensional quantity, and can be computed by the product of two orthogonal lengths (A = l • w ). The area units available in the calculator include the following:

vCalc's Area Units | ||

Production examples:

- Paving company that paves (
**a**) 21,600 square yards (4.46 acres) at a rate of 450 square yards(**`aU`**) of black-top every 45 minutes (**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you how long it will take at that rate which is 36 hours (**`t`**). - Circuitry factory wants to know how long it will take to produce 976 cm
^{2}(151.28 in^{2}) of circuitry if it can print 12.2 square centimeters(**`aU`**) of microchips every 90 minutes(**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you five days (**`t`**).
