 ```I have a document that expresses the gas flow rate in kNm3/day. I would like to have an explaination of what the unit KNm3 is. What is the conversion factor to change the rate to cubic feet/day (Flow calcualtion AGA-3compliant).```
 ```Nm3 is a common unit used in industry to refer to gas emissions or exchange. It stands for Normal cubic meter. Normal, in this case, refers to the gas at 0 degrees Celsius. To convert Nm3 to a cubic foot of gas (under standard conditions), multiply by 38.04. Therefore, 1,000 Nm3/day = 1 kNm3/day = 38,040 cf/day. The following sites offer some additional background on these units of measurement: http://www.engva.org/view.phtml?page=127.phtml has a conversion factors chart. http://www.puregastechnologies.com/glossary.htm#n and http://216.239.37.100/search?q=cache:t7SNJl4ybmgJ:www.omanlng.com/htm/lng_facts/glossary_appc.asp+site:www.omanlng.com+Nm3&hl=xx-elmer&ie=UTF-8 provide some definitions of Nm3. Hope this is what you need. If anything requires explanation or additional information, just let me know through a Request for Clarification, and I'll be glad to help you further.
