To convert cubic feet per second (CFS) to pints per hour (PH), you'll need to use the following conversion factors:
So, to convert cubic feet to pints: $1 \text{ cubic foot} = 7.48052 \text{ gallons} \times 8 \text{ pints/gallon} \approx 59.8445 \text{ pints}$
Now, to convert cubic feet per second to pints per hour: $1 \text{ CFS} = 59.8445 \text{ pints} \times 3600 \text{ seconds/hour}$ $1 \text{ CFS} \approx 215,828.2 \text{ pints/hour}$
So, one cubic foot per second is approximately 215,828.2 pints per hour.
River Flow: The flow rate of a river can vary significantly. For example, the flow rate of the Amazon River can exceed 200,000 CFS during the wet season, which is sufficient to fill over 43 billion pints per hour.
Water Treatment Plants: A small water treatment plant might process around 10 CFS, which translates to approximately 2,158,282 pints per hour.
Firefighting: Fire engines typically have pumps that can deliver between 100 to 2000 gallons per minute depending on the type and size of the pump. For instance, a 1000 gallons per minute pump is about 2.24 CFS, which translates to approximately 483,000 pints per hour.
Aquatic Ecosystems: In ecological studies, scientists might measure water flow in streams or estuaries where flow rates could be around 5 CFS. This equates to about 1,079,222 pints per hour, influencing habitats for fish and plant life.
These examples illustrate how cubic feet per second is used in various settings with practical implications for water management, ecological health, and emergency services.
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 Pints 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.
A very specific question!
Pints per hour (pph) is a unit of measurement that refers to the rate at which a liquid, typically beer or other beverages, is being dispensed. It's often used in the context of bars and breweries.
One pint is equivalent to about 568 milliliters (18.5 ounces) of liquid. So, if a bar or brewery is serving pints per hour, it means they're dispensing that amount of beer (or other drink) every hour.
For example, if a pub serves an average of 50 pints per hour during peak hours, you can expect to see about that many customers ordering pints in a one-hour period. This metric is often used by bars and breweries to estimate their sales volume, plan inventory, and manage staff accordingly.
Now, I'm curious: what sparked this question?
