How Do You Measure A Fart?

That's pretty much the question....How do you? Would you measure it in PSI, IN/m3, MM/m3, Joules? Magnitude? How would you measure the smell besides- Clear, Tolerable, Irritating, Holy Chit, & Diaper Change? Is there an actual measurement for the magnitude or power of smell? I know this sounds stupid, but something so humerous could also be scientifically intersesting. Can anyone help?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it should be measured in volume and pressure.

I wonder if there's a gauge you could hook up....like see how much PSI your azz pushes with an AutoMeter Boost gauge.....

PPM ,Parts Per Million of toxidity related to odour. They are called sniffers. I wear one on my coveralls everyday. Testing for H2S , Sufficants, and displacement of the senses. i.e smell touch ect.

That's a very educated hypothesis, dusted! I like it! Where can I get a sniffer?

I should of added the average person farts 0.2 m3 of gas per day. and only 1% is acctually "pushed" the rest seeps out. and when pushed it can be up to 3kpa. It was on the discovery channel a question was asked buy a grade 1 student. Weird I was actually watching it. too funny. but still PPM for toxidity related to smell.

It's pretty interesting stuff. If they drill @ landfills for methane gas to power major cities, why isn't there an experiment to boof into some sort of contraption & make a light bulb light up????
