To convert cubic meters per second (m³/s) to cubic feet per minute (ft³/min), you'll need to use two conversion factors:
So, the conversion process can be summarized in the following formula:
$\text{Cubic Feet per Minute} = \text{Cubic Meters per Second} \times 35.3147 \, \text{(cubic feet/cubic meter)} \times 60 \, \text{(seconds/minute)}$
Now, let's convert 1 cubic meter per second to cubic feet per minute:
$1 \, \text{m³/s} \times 35.3147 \, \text{ft³/m³} \times 60 \, \text{s/min} \approx 2118.88 \, \text{ft³/min}$
So, 1 cubic meter per second is approximately 2118.88 cubic feet per minute.

These examples underline the importance of understanding flow rates and their conversions in various fields, from environmental science to engineering.
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 feet per minute to other unit conversions.
Cubic meeters 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:
$Q = \frac{V}{t} = \frac{A*d}{t}$
$Q$ - Flow rate
$V$ - Volume (Cubic meters)
$t$ - Time in seconds
$A$ - Cross-sectional area
$d$ - Distance the fluid traveled during the time $t$

Cubic feet per minute 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 minutes and $Q$'s unit of measure is ft^3/minute.
$Q = \frac{V}{t} = \frac{A*d}{t}$
$Q$ - Flow rate
$V$ - Volume (Cubic feet)
$t$ - Time in minutes
$A$ - Cross-sectional area
$d$ - Distance the fluid traveled during the time $t$
