# How do you calculate CFS?

**cfs**):

**cfs**= 1.983 acre-feet per day = 646,320 gallons = 2447 cubic meters of water. * 1

**cfs**is equivalent to 448.8 gallons of water flowing per minute.

Hereof, how do you convert CFS to MGD?

The answer is 0.64631688969744. We assume you are **converting** between million gallon/day [US] and cubic foot/second. You can view more details on each measurement unit: million gallon/day [US] or **cfs** The SI derived unit for volume flow rate is the cubic meter/second.

**cubic feet per second**" (28.317 litres

**per second**).

Secondly, what is the formula for flow rate?

Q=Vt Q = V t , where V is the volume and t is the elapsed time. The SI unit for **flow rate** is m^{3}/s, but a number of other units for Q are in common use. For example, the heart of a resting adult pumps blood at a **rate** of 5.00 liters per minute (L/min).

**Cubic feet per second** (**cfs**): * **1 cfs** = 1.983 acre-feet per day = 646,320 gallons = 2447 cubic meters of water. * **1 cfs is** equivalent to 448.8 gallons of water flowing per minute. * **1 cfs** = 38.4 miner's inches of water.
