Re: FPM to CFM
You need to multiply the feet per minute times the crosssectional area of the pipe.
Make sure all units are the same base unit.
feet/minute * square feet = cubic feet/minute
The formula for the area of a circle is Pi*radius², with radius being 1/2 the diameter.
Is the 24" the inside diameter? If so then:
3.14 * (1 foot * 1 foot) = 3.14 square feet
FPM * 3.14 square feet = CFM
