clocking a gas appliance using a meter that reads in cubic meters

Is there a simple method to clock a natural gas appliance when the meter measures the gas being consumed in cubic meters . Thanks in advance .

It's called math?

If the appliance values are in cubic feet and the meter is in cubic meters, simply convert one side.

There's an App for that. 1 cubic meter = 35.31467 cubic ft

I think it would be more convenient to convert that into BTUs or a number of S.I. measurements for energy such as KWH for easy comparisons.

BTW 1 m^3 has 36,000 BTUs approx

Thanks for the information , I think I have the math figured out . Count the revolution the .01 cubic dial makes in one minute times 60 for meters per. hour times 35.353 for cubic ft. per. hour times 1000 gives btu. per. hour fuel input to appliance . Hope this is wright thanks every one.
