Yes, I think the latter is what people are looking for (how many liters
of air at 1atm they consumed).
Why would you need a working pressure to do that if you have a wet
volume. I'm missing something here...
BTW: I notice that we are printing OTUs and CNS... wouldn't it be even
more interesting to print the SAC rate above those two?
