meters per second to CFM
I need to convert an air flow rate from meters per second to cubic feet per minute. I have looke on numerous sites to no avail, would love to have some help on this one.
Thanks JR

Re: meters per second to CFM
meters/second * crosssectional area of pipe = cubic meters/second
cubic meters/second * 2118.88 = cubic feet/minute So you just need to calculate the cross area of the pipe the air flows through, in square meters.

14 " x 15" x 1 ft²/144 in² = 1.46 ft² 1.46 ft² x 197 ft/min = 288 ft³/min

cfm = m/sec * crosssectional area of pipe * 60 * 3.28 (60*3.28 = 196.8 for a short cut) 60 for the time time conversion and 3.28 to convert meters to feet. i have no idea where you came up with 2118.8

With reasonable rounding, that is 2118.88 (to nine significant figures). If the cross sectional area of the pipe is in square meters you have cubic meters. If it is in feet or inches, you have a mixed unit mess. It is critical to keep all the units attached and work out the units math symbolically.
