the amount of discharge in a river over a period of time

There are 27 bridges across the river Thames in London.

Electricity and water are often compared to help explain how electricity works. Voltage is like the speed of water in a river, and electrical current is like the amount of water in the river. Resistance can be compared to the physical width of the river. Power is voltage times current, or the speed of the water times the amount of water. Electricity is usually most dangerous when it is available at high power - similar to a huge, fast moving river.

The Nile River's average discharge is about 300 million cubic meters per day.

Yearly flow is 4.925 million cubic meters.

If this is liquid flowing through a pipe or down a river, then you need to know the cross sectional area at the point you are measuring. For a pipe, this would be pi * (radius)2, or pi*(diameter/2)2. Most pipe is sold by diameter. A river or creek would have to be determined by knowing the shape of the river bottom and won't be discussed here. With area in square meters, you can multiply (meters/sec) * (area) to get (cubic meters)/sec. Since there are 3600 seconds in an hour, multiply (3600 sec/hr) * (cubic meters)/sec, to get cubic meters per hour.

The Mississippi River and the Amazon River move water at roughly 0.6 million cubic meters per second. By comparison, the Gulf Stream, as it flows and forms off of Florida, moves at approximately 30 million cubic meters per second.

The width of a river will generally be measured in feet or meters, depending on if you use Imperial or Metric.
