V = at + bt2

V in million cubic feet

t in months

so after changing units to cubic feet and seconds

in a month, no. of seconds = 30*24*60*60 = 2.592 *106

so on substuting gives

V x 106 = 1.5*2.592 *106 t + 0.008*2.592 *106*2.592 *106*t2

V = 3.888 t + 53747.712 t2

with V in cubic feet and t in seconds
