Conversions can be done either with the "->" conversion operator or with the equivalent "convert" function. The function has three parameters: a quantity, a unit to convert from and a unit to convert to. Likewise the conversion operator uses three values: the quantity and unit to convert from are placed on the left side of the operator while the unit to convert to goes to the right side.
The basic unit of flow rate is the umec (cubic meter per second). All units of flow rate are expressed in terms of this base unit and so measurements can be converted from any one of the following units to any other.
10 cumec -> cusec = 353.14667
convert(10; cumec; cusec) = 353.14667
10 cumec -> lps = 10,000
convert(10; cumec; lps) = 10,000
10 cumec -> sverdrup = 0.00001
convert(10; cumec; sverdrup) = 0.00001
10 cusec -> cumec = 0.2831685
convert(10; cusec; cumec) = 0.2831685
10 cusec -> lps = 283.16847
convert(10; cusec; lps) = 283.16847
10 sverdrup -> cumec = 10,000,000
convert(10; sverdrup; cumec) = 10,000,000
