Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

A cubic foot is a unit of volume. A yard is a unit of length.

There are three feet in a yard, so there are three-cubed or 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

the formula for volume of a cylinder is Volume = pi × r2 × h

but if you arent math savvy, first you convert your units so they are the same. all you have to do is change 16 inches into 1.3 feet and divide your diameter (10.82 feet) by 2 to give you the radius (5.41 feet)

plug in those values here:

and you will get 119.5 cubic feet

then convert cubic feet to cubic yards here:

and the answer to your question is 4.425 cubic yards

Since we are trying to calculate the number of cubic yards, let's calculate everything in terms of yards.

Converting inches to yards, we have to divide by 36, since there are 36 inches in a yard.

1 ' = 1/36 yard

Converting square feet to square yards, we divide by 9, since there are 9 square feet in a square yard.

3700 square feet = 411 square yards

Calculating cubic yards, we multiply 411 square yards by 1/36 of a yard.

I get 11.42 cubic yards. So you are safe getting 12 cubic yards.

Good luck,

Paul

Assuming that 20x12 means 20 feet by 12 feet, then you take the three values in feet - 20, 12, and .333 (4 inches is 1/3 foot).

Multiply these three numbers to get the cubic feet:

12 x 20 = 240

240 x .333 = 79.92

Now that you have 79.92 cubic feet, to get cubic yards you divide by 9 since there are 9 cubic feet per cubic yard.

79.92 cu. ft. divided by 9 = 8.88 cubic yards (round up to 9).

Multiply these three numbers to get the cubic feet:

12 x 20 = 240

240 x .333 = 79.92

Now that you have 79.92 cubic feet, to get cubic yards you divide by 9 since there are 9 cubic feet per cubic yard.

79.92 cu. ft. divided by 9 = 8.88 cubic yards (round up to 9).

We need to convert everything to a common unit, so let's convert the 18 inches into 1.5 feet.

Volume is length times width times height.

v= 132 x 2 x 1.5

v= 396 cubic feet

To convert to cubic yards, imagine a yard cube. It is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet for a total of 27 cubic feet.

v1 = 396 cubic feet/27 cubic feet per yard

v1 = 14 2/3 cubic yards

So 15 cubic yards should do it.

Good luck.

First step - convert everything to feet - 5" is 5/12 of a foot

40 x 4 x 5/12 = 66.6 cubic feet.

Since a cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

66.6 cubic feet / 27 cubic feet/cubic yard = 2.5 cubic yards.

Good luck.

Hi Paula:

A mathematical logic question.

You need to get all of the measurements in the same units.

- A cubic yard is 1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard

- equals 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft

- equals 27 cubic feet,

so once you have the volume of the pipe in cubic feet, you divide by 27 to get the volume in cubic yards.

- Volume of a cylinder (the pipe) is the cross sectional area X length.

- Area equals Pi x r squared.

- equals 22/7 x 1 x 1

equals 3.14#####

times length (20)

equals 62.857### cubic feet volume

divide by 27 cubic feet

equals 2.328### cubic yards.

- The answer is always the easy part.

- what is important is knowing exactly what the question is, and

- determing what calculations are needed to get the answer.

Wasn't that better than if I'd just said 2 1/3 cubic yards?

Cheers

Hi Bob:

1 cubic yard is 3ft by 3 ft by 3 ft.

3 times 3 times 3 equals 27, so

1 cubic yard equals 27 cubic feet.

2 1/2 inches divided by 12 inches equals .2083333 feet

196 square feet times .208333 feet equals 40.83333 cubic feet

40.83333 cubic ft divided by 27 cubic ft equals 1.5123456 cu yards.

Ta Da!!!!

Imagine or draw a cubic yard. It has a length of 1 yard, a width of 1 yard, and a depth of 1 yard. Now each of these yards can be broken down into 3 feet, since there are 3 feet in a yard. Thus, a cubic yard has a length of 3 feet, a width of 3 feet, and a depth of 3 feet. We have 3 x 3 x 3 or 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

Next, take 2106 and divide by 27. The answer is 78 cubic yards.

Good luck.

Paul
