To convert cubic feet per second (ft³/s) to cubic centimeters per second (cm³/s), you can use the conversion factors between the two units.
1 cubic foot is equal to 28,316.8466 cubic centimeters. Thus, to convert cubic feet per second to cubic centimeters per second, you multiply the flow rate in cubic feet per second by this conversion factor.
$\text{cm}^3/\text{s} = \text{ft}^3/\text{s} \times 28,316.8466$
Let's convert 1 cubic foot per second to cubic centimeters per second.
$1 \text{ ft}^3/\text{s} \times 28,316.8466 \text{ cm}^3/\text{ft}^3 = 28,316.8466 \text{ cm}^3/\text{s}$
So, 1 cubic foot per second is approximately 28,316.85 cubic centimeters per second.
Here are a few real-world examples of flow rates measured in cubic feet per second:

Understanding these conversions can be particularly important in fields like hydrology, civil engineering, and environmental science.
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 Cubic Centimeters 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 $t$

Cubic centimeters 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 the unit of measure for Q is cm^3/second.
$Q = \frac{V}{t} = \frac{A*d}{t}$
$Q$ - Flow rate
$V$ - Volume (Cubic centimeters)
$t$ - Time in seconds
$A$ - Cross-sectional area
$d$ - Distance the fluid traveled during the time $t$
