    Hint: we can measure the volume of water flowing out of the faucet in m^3 (that is, meters cubed), and the time in s (that is, seconds)

    You can also measure the flow rate as mass per unit time, and that would be
    kg/s (kilograms per second).

    (chuckles) Or you could measure it in the Heaviside-Lorentz system (a subdivision of the SI system) where it would be unitless.

    Don't say that for your answer, Mac!!
