The **Time to Produce, Consume or Covere a Length** calculator computes the the period (**`p`**) of production or consumption for a total linear distance or length produced or consumed, based on the total length (l) and a rate of processing. The rate is based on a unit of length (**`lU`**) and the time to produce or consume the unit (**`dU`**) (e.g. 2.6 nautical miles ever 23.4 hours)

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

- (
**lU**) This is the unit length (e.g. 40 feet per unit) - (
**dU**) This is the amount of time to process one unit length (e.g. 2.3 minutes) - (
**l**) This is the total length desired (e.g. 2.2 miles)

The **Time to Produce a Length** calculator computes the amount of time in seconds (s). However, this can be automatically converted to other duration units (e.g. days, months, years) via the pull-down menu. To compute the Length Produced over a Period of Time based on the unit length and time to produce the unit**,**CLICK HERE**.**

Production examples:

- Cable company wants to know how long it will take to install 135 yards of cable if it can burry 450 yards(
**`lU`**) of cable every 5 days(**`dU`**). This calculator will compute 36 hours (**`p`**). - The captain of a ship wants to know how long it will take to go 610 nautical miles (NMI) if the ship sales at a rate of 122 nautical miles(
**`lU`**) at sea every day(**`dU`**). This calculator computes five days (**`p`**).

Consumption examples:

- A fabric factory wants to know how long it will take to use up a 19.2 meter spool of special silk thread if it is consumed at an average rate of 7800 meters(
**`lU`**) of silk thread every month (**`dU`**). This calculator computes 18 hour (**`p`**). - A country wants to know how long it will take to loses 378 kilometers of its coast line to rising sea levels if it has determined a rate of loss of 12.6 km(
**`lU`**) of coastline every year(**`dU`**). This calculator computes an answer of 30 years (**`p`**).

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