Convert 1 hour 45 minutes to 105 (60 + 45) on the TIME (inner) scale and read the
amount of fuel consumed on the FUEL (outer) scale. (Figure 4.3-25)
Figure 4.3-25 Fuel Consumption 2
1750 pounds of fuel consumed
Finding fuel flow.
Given: Time flown . . . . . . . 45 sec
Fuel consumed . . . 117 pounds
Estimate the answer. Since the time is less than a minute, it is logical to assume
after a minute the fuel burned would be about 150 #, so a good estimate would be
about 9000 #.
Find 11.7 (117 #) on the FUEL (outer) scale and place it over 45 seconds on the
TIME (inner) scale. (Figure 4.3-26)
