cubic fot / hour into liters / hour

Postby Walter » Sat Oct 04, 2008 12:18 am

A generator comsuption of liquified propane is 120 cubic ft per hour. How many liters per hour is that?
When i write on the table 1 liter/hour, the table converted to 0.035 cubic ft/hour. But when i write 1 cu ft/h , the table converts it into 28.32 lt/hr.
If i write 120 cu ft/hr it translate into 3 398 (with no decimal points) lt/hr.
120 cu ft/ hr shoud be 120 X 0.035 = 4.2 lt/hr

Well, LPG is usually sold as a pressurized liquid measured in liters, gallons, etc. However, it is usually consumed as a gas, measured in cubic feet, cubic meters, etc It expands about 277:1 in changing from a liquid to a gas (this factor varies slightly depending on the percent butane in the propane).

But 1 L/h = 0.035 cu ft/hr
28.32 L/h = 1 cu ft/h
are the same thing really. Multiply BOTH sides of the first by 28.32 and you get the second.
