To convert cubic feet per second (CFS) to fluid ounces per minute (FOM), you need to know the conversion factors between these two units.
Conversion factors:
Conversion process: Start with the volume flow rate in cubic feet per second and multiply by the conversion factor, then convert seconds to minutes.
$1 \text{ CFS} = 1 \text{ cubic foot/second} \times 7,570.82 \text{ fluid ounces/cubic foot} \times 60 \text{ seconds/minute}$
$= 1 \times 7,570.82 \times 60 = 454,249.2 \text{ fluid ounces/minute}$
Thus, 1 cubic foot per second is equal to approximately 454,249.2 fluid ounces per minute.
Flow of a River: If a river has a flow rate of 10 CFS, that means its flow is approximately: $10 \text{ CFS} \times 454,249.2 \text{ FOM} \approx 4,542,492 \text{ fluid ounces/minute}$ This is an immense volume of water, illustrating the sheer size of river flows.
Swimming Pool Filling: If a water main supplying a swimming pool flows at 2 CFS, it is equivalent to: $2 \text{ CFS} \times 454,249.2 \text{ FOM} \approx 908,985 \text{ fluid ounces/minute}$ This would fill a standard pool relatively quickly, emphasizing the efficiency of high-flow sources.
Industrial Applications: In manufacturing, a machine could operate at a rate of 0.5 CFS for water cooling. This results in: $0.5 \text{ CFS} \times 454,249.2 \text{ FOM} \approx 227,492 \text{ fluid ounces/minute}$ This allows for effective temperature regulation in operational equipment.
These examples highlight the applicability of cubic feet per second in various contexts, from natural ecosystems to industrial processes and domestic applications.

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.
Fluid ounces per minute (fl oz/min) is a unit of measurement that represents the volume of a liquid flowing or being dispensed over time. In other words, it's a measure of how many fluid ounces are contained in one minute.
For example, if you have a bottle that flows 16 fl oz of juice every 2 minutes, its flow rate would be 8 fl oz/min (since 16 ÷ 2 = 8).
Fluid ounces per minute is commonly used to express the flow rates of various liquids, such as:
To give you a better idea, here are some everyday examples of fluid ounces per minute:
Now, keep in mind that fluid ounces per minute is just one of many units used to measure flow rates. Other common units include cubic centimeters per minute (cm³/min), liters per minute (L/min), and gallons per hour (gal/h).
