## Review of Formula Terms

a = sectional area of airway, in square feet (ft.2)
l = length of airway, in feet (ft.)
o = perimeter of airway, in feet (ft.)

## Practice Problem - Quantity

Find the quantity of air
passing thru an entry
17 feet 6 inches wide
and 9 feet high, with
180 fpm registered on
the anemometer.
A = WH
Q = AV

Solution:
A = WH
A = 17.5 x 9
A = 157.5 sq. ft.
Q = AV
Q = (157.5 sq.ft.)(180
fpm)
Q = 28,350 CFM

## Find the quantity of

air passing thru and
entry 18 feet wide
and 6 feet 6 inches
high, with 110 fpm
registered on the
anemometer.
A = WH
Q = AV

Solution:
A = WH
A = 18 x 6.5
A = 117 sq. ft.
Q = AV
Q = (117 sq.ft.)(110
fpm)
Q = 12,870 CFM
