Hi All, Is there a formula to convert 1.21x10^8 1s1 to 1.22x10^8kg (3 s.f)? Thanks for any help.

there has to be more to this than you've written.... why should you be able to convert $Hz$ to $kg \cdot ft^2$ ?

Hi Romsek, I am trying to carry out a calculation for an overspill of a damn. When it overflows 1.21x10^8 1s1 exits, how can I show that the mass of water leaving the lake is 1.22x10^8 kg? Density  1012 kg m3 g = 9.81ms2 Thanks. Last edited by skipjack; February 13th, 2019 at 07:26 AM.

$(1.21 \times 10^8 \, L/s) \, \cdot (10^{3} \, m^3/L) \, \cdot (1012 \, kg/m^3) \, = 1.22 \times 10^8 \, kg/s$ ... note the water leaving the lake is a rate of kg per second, not just kg. Last edited by skipjack; February 13th, 2019 at 07:25 AM.
