Forum rules

Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Need Cubic Inches per minute

Tue Sep 24, 2013 12:00 am

On the Flow Rate by Volume page, cubic inches is needed. It should be supported for all the same time units as cubic feet. The displacement of many piston engines is measured in cubic inches. To calculate the flow rate of air (or fuel air mixture) through an engine at a given rpm one must multiply the displacement by the rpm, yielding flow rate per minute. Currently one must multiply or divide by 144 and use cubic feet.

Thank you for the suggestion. We'll add cubic inches in our next update.
