To convert cubic meters per second (m³/s) to gallons per hour (gal/h), you can follow these steps:
Convert Cubic Meters to Gallons:
Convert Seconds to Hours:
So, 1 cubic meter per second is equal to approximately 952,075.2 gallons per hour.
Water Flow in Rivers: A major river may flow at a rate of 1000 m³/s. This equates to about 3,484,000,000 gallons per hour, giving you an idea of the immense volume of water moving through it.
Water Supply for Cities: A large city's water supply system might have a pumping capacity of around 5 m³/s, which translates to roughly 17,760,000 gallons per hour.
Industrial Applications: In industrial settings, a factory may require about 0.5 m³/s of cooling water, which equals about 1,702,000 gallons per hour.
Hydroelectric Power Plants: A hydroelectric dam might have a flow rate of 100 m³/s, resulting in about 339,000,000 gallons per hour used for energy generation.
These examples highlight various scenarios where cubic meters per second can be used, showcasing the importance of such measurements in understanding water resources and fluid dynamics in real-world applications.
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 Gallons per hour 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 $t$

Gallons per hour 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 hours and $Q$'s unit of measure is gal/hour
$Q = \frac{V}{t} = \frac{A*d}{t}$
$Q$ - Flow rate
$V$ - Volume (Gallons)
$t$ - Time in hours
$A$ - Cross-sectional area
$d$ - Distance the fluid traveled during the time $t$
