To convert cubic meters per second (m³/s) to cubic millimeters per second (mm³/s), you can use the conversion factor between cubic meters and cubic millimeters.
1 cubic meter (m³) is equal to $1,000,000,000$ cubic millimeters (mm³), since:
$1 \text{ m} = 1,000 \text{ mm}$
Thus:
$1 \text{ m}^3 = (1,000 \text{ mm})^3 = 1,000,000,000 \text{ mm}^3$
To convert from m³/s to mm³/s, you multiply by $1,000,000,000$:
$1 \text{ m}^3/\text{s} = 1 \text{ m}^3/\text{s} \times 1,000,000,000 \text{ mm}^3/\text{m}^3 = 1,000,000,000 \text{ mm}^3/\text{s}$
So, in conclusion:
$1 \text{ m}^3/\text{s} = 1,000,000,000 \text{ mm}^3/\text{s}$
Here are some real-world examples of flow rates measured in cubic meters per second:
Large River Flow Rate: The Amazon River has an average discharge of about 209,000 m³/s, making it one of the largest rivers by volume in the world.
Hydroelectric Power Station: A large hydroelectric dam, such as the Hoover Dam, can have a flow rate of around 10,000 m³/s when generating electricity.
Industrial Processes: Large-scale manufacturing processes, such as those in chemical plants, may involve flow rates of several cubic meters per second for fluids or gasses.
Wastewater Treatment: A municipal wastewater treatment plant might handle wastewater at rates of around 1-3 m³/s, depending on the size of the facility.
Firefighting: In firefighting applications, large fire trucks can pump water at rates of around 10,000 to 30,000 liters per minute, which equates to 0.167 to 0.5 m³/s.
These examples provide context for understanding the magnitude of different flow rates in various applications.

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 millimeters 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/h.
$Q = \frac{V}{t} = \frac{A*d}{t}$
$Q$ - Flow rate
$V$ - Volume (Cubic millimeters)
$t$ - Time in second
$A$ - Cross-sectional area
$d$ - Distance the fluid traveled during the time $t$
