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**) Unit Volume amount (e.g. 2.3 liters) - (
**dU**) Time to Process a unit volume amount (e.g. 1.2 milliseconds) - (
**TV**) Total Volume processed (e.g. 720 barrels)

**Time for Volume (P):** The calculator computes the time to process the total amount at the rate specified. Note, time units can be automatically converted 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.

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 reservoir 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`**).

The formula for Time for Volume is:

T = TV * (dU / vU)

where:

- T = Time to process the total volume (TV)
- TV = Total Volume processed
- dU = Unit Duration to process Unit Volume (vU)
- vU = Unit Volume amount

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).

vCalc provides automatic conversions between length units. A Volume Conversion Calculator can be found by CLICKING HERE.

The Production Calculator computes the cost in time or capital to buy, produce or consume commodities measured by number of units or by length, area, volume or weight. It provides automatic conversions between different units for time, length, area, volume, mass and up to date currency conversions between several international currencies.
