To convert cubic feet per second (ft³/s) to centiliters per second (cl/s), you need to understand the relationship between these two units.
1 cubic foot is equivalent to approximately 28,316.8 cubic centimeters (cm³). Since 1 centiliter is equal to 10 cubic centimeters, you can convert the cubic feet per second to centiliters per second using the following steps:
Convert cubic feet to cubic centimeters: $1 \text{ ft}³ = 28,316.8 \text{ cm}³$
Convert cubic centimeters to centiliters: $1 \text{ cl} = 10 \text{ cm}³$
Therefore, to convert from cubic feet per second to centiliters per second, you can use the following formula:
$1 \text{ ft}³/\text{s} = \frac{28,316.8 \text{ cm}³}{1 \text{ ft}³} \times \frac{1 \text{ cl}}{10 \text{ cm}³} = \frac{28,316.8}{10} \, \text{cl/s} = 2,831.68 \text{ cl/s}$
So, $1 \text{ ft}³/\text{s} \approx 2,831.68 \text{ cl/s}$
Here are a few examples of flow rates in cubic feet per second and their approximate conversion to other quantities:
Water Flow in a River:
Industrial Pump:

These examples illustrate how different contexts can use the measurement of flow rate and how converting these units can put performance and requirement in perspective within various industries.
See below section for step by step unit conversion with formulas and explanations. Please refer to the table below for a list of all the Centilitres per second to other unit conversions.
Cubic feet per second measures amount of fluid passes though a cross-sectional area. In short, it measures flow rate.
Flow rate can be calculated using following formula. Please note that $t$ is in seconds and $Q$'s unit of measure is ft^3/s.
$Q = \frac{V}{t} = \frac{A*d}{t}$
$Q$ - Flow rate
$V$ - Volume (Cubic feet)
$t$ - Time in second
$A$ - Cross-sectional area
$d$ - Distance the fluid traveled during the time $t$
For more in-depth understanding of the flow rate read Flow Rate and Its Relation to Velocity from LibreTexts Physics website.
A unit of measurement!
Centiliters per second (cm/s) is a unit of speed or velocity, specifically measuring the rate at which something is moving in a direction.
To break it down:
So, if something is moving at 10 centiliters per second, it means that every second, the quantity of something (e.g., liquid, gas, or substance) is increasing by 0.1 liters.
In everyday applications, you might encounter units like millimeters per second (mm/s), kilometers per hour (km/h), or miles per minute (mph).
