Air flow relative to duct size
How much air can a 8 x 5 1/2" rectangular duct flow?
It would depend on the velocity and the friction rate that you chose. if you where using around 600 fpm around 160 cfm
You have been a long time user. Use my profile and I'll be happy to share some simple thoughts that may help
You have got to learn from other people's mistakes! Because God knows you don't live long enough to make them all yourself !!!!!!!!
It would depend, as said, on friction rate, and velocity.

But, as an example:
10 round caries (general rule) what, 300-400 cfm?
I've got a system I'm doing where I'm moving 2k cfm through 10", for a special exhaust, and thats design from the manufacturer.
as a general rule, but does not cover all situations and varies system by system:
"Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."
"Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."
"Just get it done son."
