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

cubic fot / hour into liters / hour

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.
