## About CFS to GPM Calculator (Formula)

The CFS to GPM (Cubic Feet per Second to Gallons per Minute) calculator is a tool used to convert flow rates from cubic feet per second (CFS) to gallons per minute (GPM).

The conversion formula is:

**$GPM=CFS×7.481×60$**

Where:

- GPM represents Gallons per Minute
- CFS represents Cubic Feet per Second

Explanation of the formula:

- $7.481$ is the conversion factor from cubic feet to gallons. This factor accounts for the volume of water in a cubic foot.
- $60$ converts the time unit from seconds to minutes.

This formula is based on the fact that 1 cubic foot contains approximately 7.481 gallons of water. Therefore, to convert from CFS to GPM, you multiply the flow rate in CFS by $7.481$ and then multiply by $60$ to convert the time unit.

For example, if you have a flow rate of $3$ CFS, the conversion would be:

**$GPM=3×7.481×60≈1348.58GPM$**

So, $3$ cubic feet per second is approximately equivalent to $1348.58$ gallons per minute. This conversion is commonly used in various applications involving fluid flow rates, such as in engineering, hydrology, and water management.
