To convert from cubic feet per second (cfs) to cubic yards per hour (cy/h), you'll need to follow these steps:
Understanding the Units:
Conversion Steps:
Putting it Together: Starting with 1 cubic foot per second: $\text{Cubic feet per hour} = 1 \text{ cfs} \times 3600 = 3600 \text{ cubic feet per hour}$ Now, convert to cubic yards per hour: $\text{Cubic yards per hour} = \frac{3600 \text{ cubic feet per hour}}{27} \approx 133.33 \text{ cubic yards per hour}$
Thus, 1 cubic foot per second is approximately 133.33 cubic yards per hour.
River Flow: The flow rate of a river might be measured at several thousand cubic feet per second. For instance, the Colorado River can flow at rates exceeding 15,000 cfs during peak conditions.
Water Supply: A large water treatment facility might have a capacity of 50 cfs, indicating that it can treat 50 cubic feet of water each second for distribution to households.
Industrial Uses: A manufacturing plant might utilize cooling water through a system with a flow rate of 20 cfs, which involves circulating water to remove excess heat.
Environmental Studies: Scientists studying wetlands or habitats may monitor flow rates of around 5 cfs to assess water availability for flora and fauna.
These examples help illustrate how cubic feet per second is commonly used in various fields such as 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 yards per hour 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.
To calculate cubic yards per hour, we need to know the volume of something being measured in cubic yards and the time it's being measured over in hours. Unfortunately, you didn't provide specific details about what you're measuring or any values.
