# Time for Volume

vCalc.Time for Volume

The **Time for Volume** calculator computes the period of time (**P**) needed to process a total volume (TV) of material at a volumetric rate. The volumetric rate is a unit of volume (**vU**) and the time to produce or consume the unit (**dU**) (e.g. 5.6 liters every 22 minutes).

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

- (
**vU**) The unit volume amount (e.g. 2.3 liters) - (
**dU**) The time to process a unit volume amount (e.g. 1.2 milliseconds) - (
**TV**) This is the total volume processed (e.g. 720 barrels)

**Time for Volume (P):** The calculator computes the period of time in seconds. However, this can be automatically converted to other time units (e.g. minute, hours, days or years) via the pull-down menu. To compute the Volume Produced over 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 the amount of time need to process a total volumes based on the volume processing rate.

### Examples

Production examples:

- A dairy wants to know how long it will take to process 216 total gallons of milk if it can process 4.5 gallons(
**`vU`**) of milk every 45 minutes (**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you 36 hours (**`p`**). - A cement factory wants to know how long it will take to produce 960 cubic yards of concrete if it that can produce 12 cubic yards(
**`vU`**) of concrete every 90 minutes(**`dU`**). This calculator can tell you five days (**`p`**).

Consumption examples:

- A town has a resevoir of 60,3000 liters in a water tower. The town wants to know how long that will last if the town that consumes 670 liters (
**`vU`**) of water every day(**`dU`**). This calculator computes an answer of 90 days (**`p`**).

## Volume Units

Volume is a three dimensional quantity, and can be computed by the product of three orthogonal lengths (V = l • w • h) or by an area times an orthogonal length (V = A • d).
