    Lightbulb to be up to...

    I would like to know if the underlined sentence makes any sense to You?

    The measured pressure drops were found to lie within 20 per cent of the homogenous model predictions in the first two cases but to be up to a factor of two greater in the third case.


    Thanks

    In the third case the actual results were as much as two times the predicted results.
