# Volume flow rate of a piston

An engine's piston moves at an average speed of 10 $$\text{m/s}$$ while pulling the air-fuel mixture through a 3 $$\text{cm}$$ by 2 $$\text{cm}$$ rectangular intake valve. Find the average volume flow rate for the air-fuel mixture entering the piston in $$\frac{\text{m}^3}{s}$$. (Assume the piston has the same cross-sectional dimensions as the intake valve.)

This four-stroke engine goes through the stages of intake, compression, combustion, and exhaust.
