You figure it up. 2.25"/2 (radius)= 1.125" X 1.125" (squared)= 1.265265 X 3.1416 (pi)= 3.976 sq. in area cross section

2.5"/2 (radius)= 1.25" X 1.25" (squared)=1.5625 X 3.1416 (pi)= 4.90875 sq. in. cross section. (NOT diameter).

1.5/2 (radius)= 0.75" X 0.75" (squared)= 0.5625" X 3.1416 (pi) = 1.76715 sq. in. cross section X 2 (two pipes)= 3.5343 sq. in. cross section total.

I really wonder if that 1.5" twin pipe figure is correct.....
