To convert cubic feet per second (cfs) to pints per second (pts/s), you need to know the conversion factors between these two units.
1 cubic foot is equivalent to 7.48052 gallons, and 1 gallon is equivalent to 8 pints. Hence, we can derive the conversion:
1 cubic foot = 7.48052 gallons × 8 pints/gallon 1 cubic foot = 59.78416 pints
Now, to convert cubic feet per second to pints per second, you multiply by the conversion factor:
1 cfs = 59.78416 pints/second
So, if you had 1 cubic foot per second of flow:
1 cfs = 59.78416 pts/s
River Flow: Flow rates for rivers are often measured in cfs. For instance, the average flow rate of the Amazon River is around 100,000 cfs, which is substantial and supports the vast ecosystem of the rainforest.
Water Treatment Plants: A small treatment plant might process around 5-10 cfs of wastewater. In comparison, a large facility serving a city could handle several hundred cfs.
Firefighting: Fire hoses may deliver water at rates of 1000 to 2000 cfs in extreme situations, although this can depend on the hose size and pressure.
Aqueduct and Canal Systems: Water distribution systems can have flow rates of 50 cfs to hundreds of cfs, depending on the demand and size of the system.
Cooling Systems: Industrial cooling systems may require a certain cfs to maintain optimal temperature. A large power plant might require 500 to 3000 cfs of water for cooling.
These examples illustrate the diverse applications of volume flow measurements in real-world scenarios.
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 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.
Pints per second (pt/s) is a unit of measurement that represents the volume flow rate of a fluid, in this case, liquid.
One pint (pt) is equivalent to approximately 568.26 milliliters (mL) or 473.176 cubic centimeters (cm³).
A flow rate of pints per second (pt/s) is essentially the amount of liquid that flows through a given point in one second. It's often used to express the volume of fluid being pumped, flowed, or leaked at a particular instant.
To put it into perspective:
Keep in mind that the use of pints per second as a unit is more common in everyday conversation or in applications where fluid handling is not strictly regulated, like plumbing or firefighting. In scientific and technical contexts, units like liters per minute (L/min), cubic meters per second (m³/s), or gallons per hour (gph) are often preferred for their precision and clarity.
Now you know what pints per second means!
