English term or phrase: Trillion gallon
Hola. No soy para nada buena con los número, por favor necesito ayuda. Ya sé que existen conversores de medidas, pero no estoy segura de lo que hago. estoy haciendo una traducción en la que se habla de un río y de su gran caudal. Es un tenxo de Estados Unidos. Y lo que no sé convertir es: 1)A TRILLION GALLONS of water 2) IT CHURNS ALONG AT **50,000 CUBIC FEET PER SECOND**
Tal vez a alguien le parezca más fácil, a mí no !!!
¡Muchas gracias!

billón de galones
Explanation:
1 trillion (US) = 1 x 10^12 = 1 billón (Spain)
1 gallon (US) = 3.79 litros
1 trillion (US) = 3.79 billones de litros (o "casi 4 billones", depende de la exactitud que se necesite)

1 foot = 12 inches = 12x2.54 cm = 30.48 cm
1 cubic feet = 30.48^3 cc = 28317 cc
50000 cubic feet/s = 50000 x 28317 cc = 1415840000 cm cubicos/s = 1416 m^3/s (o \"casi 1500 metros cubicos por segundo\")
