To convert cubic feet per second (cfs) to tablespoons per second, we need to use the conversion factors between these two units of volume.
Convert cubic feet to cubic inches: There are 1,728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot (since $12 \text{ in} \times 12 \text{ in} \times 12 \text{ in} = 1,728 \text{ in}^3$).
Convert cubic inches to tablespoons: There are approximately 0.903 cubic inches in a tablespoon. Therefore, the conversion from cubic inches to tablespoons is achieved by dividing the volume in cubic inches by 0.903.
Now, we can derive the formula for converting cubic feet per second to tablespoons per second:
1 cfs = $1 \text{ cubic foot per second} = 1,728 \text{ cubic inches per second}$
To find the number of tablespoons per second:
$1 \text{ cfs} = \frac{1,728 \text{ cubic inches}}{0.903 \text{ cubic inches per tablespoon}} \approx 1,913.5 \text{ tablespoons per second}$
So, 1 cubic foot per second is approximately equivalent to 1,913.5 tablespoons per second.
Small Streams: A small stream might flow at around 1 cfs, which is sufficient to keep a few fish moving through the water, ensuring them a habitat.
Household Bathtub: The flow rate of water from a typical bathtub faucet is approximately 4 to 5 cfs when fully open, which allows for a quick filing of the tub.
Fire Hydrant Flow: A fire hydrant can discharge between 1,000 and 1,500 gallons per minute, which can convert to about 2.24 to 3.37 cfs, providing emergency services with a reliable source of water.
Waterfall: Some medium-sized waterfalls can flow at rates of about 100 cfs or more, creating impressive natural visuals while providing habitat for various organisms.
Wastewater Treatment Plants: The inflow of sewage into a treatment plant might be measured at several cubic feet per second, depending on the size of the facility and population it serves.
These examples illustrate different contexts in which flow rate in cubic feet per second is relevant to both natural and engineered systems.
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 Tablespoons 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.
A unit of measurement!
Tablespoons per second (tbsp/s) is a unit of measurement for flow rate or velocity. It represents the amount of liquid that flows through a given area in one second, with each flow being equivalent to one tablespoon.
To put it into perspective:
This unit of measurement might be useful in specific contexts, such as measuring the flow rate of a liquid in a laboratory setting or in industrial processes.
Now, I'm curious - what led you to ask about tablespoons per second?
