Calculating the size for an a/c compressor


I'm writing an article about the Census Bureau's population projections through 2060, which consists of a 3.3 MB .csv file when uncompressed.

The file consists of 539,781 values, each of which is 5-7 digits, and takes up 3,455,372 characters. When I gzip the file it comes down to 1550063 bytes, or 1.47 MB.

I want to be able to truthfully state that it would fit on a 3.5-inch floppy, max capacity 1.44 MB. This is just a reference point, not advice to a user that requires instructions on how to do so.

Is there a way to calculate the theoretical size of a text file based on the character count above? If we actually had a 3.5-inch floppy and a drive for it, would it be possible to get this file on the disk without information loss?...

For GFS retention this is more simple, you simply count 500Gb and multiply it for the number of restore points, since all of them are fulls. So, again in your case it will be 15 restore points, that is 7,5 TB for GFS.

If I look at my repo for a particular job and see a size for my latest VBK, I can add up the restore points to keep, multiply by the size of the latest VBK and that will give me my GFS storage requirements?

Latest VBK for a job = 365GB
Weekly = 3
Monthly = 11
Yearly = 1
Total = 15

Does it follow that for a year the GFS retention will equal 3+11+1*365GB/1024=5.34TB? And double that for 2 years?

If so, how does Server2012 dedup come into play when we are planning the physical storage for this? Will that yearly 5.34TB be deduped 50% (conservative estimate) and require that I have a minimum of 2.67TB of storage for a year just for GFS? Or will dedup do a better job on all these...

Buy the right AC for your room's size.

Larger rooms need more powerful units. Buy too weak a system, and it may rarely cool your room satisfactorily. Excessively powerful air conditioning units come with their own problems -- they switch on and off too often and consume too much energy. They also produce too much noise, dehumidify inefficiently and cost more. Determine your air conditioner's necessary tonnage from your room's area. .

Step 1

Measure the room's area in square feet. For a square or rectangular room, multiply length by width. If the shape is more complex, divide the room into rectangles where possible, multiply the length of each by its width, and add the square footage of the sections together. If the room has a triangular section, multiply that section's length by its width, divide by 2, and add that to the total.

Step 2

Determine the area's necessary cooling requirement in British Thermal Units (BTUs). Start with a base of 5,000 BTUs...

An engine's compression ratio will dictate how it will perform. In general, if the volume of the cylinder when the piston is down is greater than the combustion chamber volume when the piston up, the space is calculated as a ratio of the volume. When the valves for exhaust and intake are closed, no air is let out, the piston raises, and the mixture of air and fuel is compressed. Compression ratio refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down to when the piston is up. 5 factors define this equation: volume of cylinder displacement, volume of clearance, dome of piston, volume of head gasket and volume of chamber. To calculate the ratio for your vehicle, you need to use the formula, compression ration = volume at below dead center divided by volume at top dead center. This is not as simple as it sounds but if you know a few key measurements, you will be able to calculate the compression ratio.

The Fight Against Compressor Horsepower Calculator

More horsepower doesn’t necessarily mean more air. About eight horsepower is consumed for each one horsepower of work generated by the tool. You have to determine motor horsepower within the field to verify that the right-size motor was applied.

If you want to utilize your compressor for household tasks and occasional little projects, these drawbacks aren’t significant concerns. These varieties of compressors are generally used at construction sites where electricity isn’t readily offered. Compressors utilized in the gas and oil industry are broken up into six groups depending on their intended support.

Here’s What I Know About Compressor Horsepower Calculator

The compressor should be slowed to l,140 rpm through the usage of belts and pulleys. The key issue is that the compressor is restricted to only a single speed. Most light-duty home compressors are intended to power only a single tool at a...

Lower pressure drop by installing the right compressed air pipe size. Calculate the correct pipe size for your compressed air system.

So, you want to know the correct pipe size for your compressed air installation? It easy, I’ll explain how.I still see too many places where the pipe size of the compressed air system is too small. It’s either because the factory or workshop has grown over time, and the old system became too small (quite understandable), or they just installed a too small pipe to begin with!What’s the problem with a too small compressed air pipe? Pressure drop!

If too much air needs to pass a too small pipe, it will have trouble passing through this pipe. The result is a pressure drop between the beginning of the pipe and the end of the pipe.

Now, what’s the problem with pressure drop you ask? Money!

If the pressure drop becomes too high, you will need to set your compressor on a higher setpoint. The higher the setpoint of your compressor,...

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This script allows for the calculation of the reduced file size after a propose compression sequence of a given ratio. Enter the current size of the file. Click on Calculate to see the various calculated file sizes for the proposed compression reduction. The algorithm works on file sizes above 10kb. The units designation of kb, mb, gb or larger is not important as long as you understand that the reduction is based on the ratio and is in the same units designation. The terminology is sometimes ambiguous in that a compression ratio of 2 to 1 indicates the compressed file is about one half the original size, while a compression ration of 10 to 1 is about a tenth of the original...

Can someone guide me how to formulate a multiple stage compressor in terms of intake air mass flow rate, specific work of each stage and other parameters. In this problem, I only have the available electricity to be used by the compressors and the compression ration of each stage which is constant and equal for all and just nothing else. Clearly, the problem has several dimensions to be considered such as the rotor speed, the air mass flow rate, the specific work of each stage and so on. There are some operational diagrams for some typical compressors, however, I need some operational diagrams that match my work (air compressors for high pressures (up to 100 bar) and high mass flow rates (up to 100 kg/s)). Can someone help me to find a good reference please?, really...

Free to use Central Air Conditioning heat load calculator.

Calculator is based on the square foot method, with computations added for the most important values included. Such as insulation, windows and other factors. The system is pre-set to a 72 degree indoor temp and 95 outdoor temp.
This calculator is provided for use as a super quick method of computing basic size and value conditions.
Most commonly used values are preset, you may change them at will, and keep testing your total with different combinations of values, in as simply as 2 clicks. Since central air conditioning units are provided in increments of 1/2 ton sizes, this system should be very close to the actual units you will use. Extreme circumstances such as, shade, non vented attics, heavy air infiltration, combinations of insulation are not provided for. Homes with such conditions can only be calculated with proper heat load calculations.
Square foot methods are considered rule of...

Do you know what size your air conditioner is? In the world of building science, you'll hear a lot of talk about why oversized air conditioners are a bad idea. Why? Briefly, they don't dehumidify as well, short-cycling wears them out quicker, and your home will probably be less comfortable if the air conditioner is too big. But to know if your AC is oversized, first you have to know what size it is.

First, let me clarify. I’m not talking about finding the size of air conditioner you need. You do that with a heating and cooling load calculation. What I’m talking about is how to find the size of an air conditioner when you’re standing in front of it. Today, I’ll tell you four ways you can do that.
