SOURCE: andrew is ordering the top

How big is the planter, what are its demensions. Figure out how many yards in the planter, Right? Either full yards or partial. Or you can buy the top soil in bags, start filling the planter, and when you over fill and spill on the ground you have the right amount, Also you must ask are there plants in the planter, because they will take up some room with their roots.. Good luck...By the wayis this a left handed planter or a right handed planter, ????

SOURCE: 1. convert 10,000 Square meters

  1. You cannot convert square meters (m²) to meters (m). The first unit measures an area, the second a length. You might as well ask, "what is the weight of two hours".
  2. There is no single answer without further constraints given. Even assuming a box-shaped room, it might be, for example 1ft x 1ft x 300,000ft or 100ft x 100ft x 30ft. Infinite more combinations are possible.
  3. My pleasure ;-)

SOURCE: How many gallons per cubic

Google is very good at this, if you type "us gallons to cubic feet" it will work it out for you.

So 1 US gallon = .13368 cubic feet

or 9 cubic feet = 67.32 US gallons

SOURCE: how to convert cubic meters

That is something that cannot be done (cubic to square). You can convert cubic meters to cubic feet or square meters to square feet as follows:

Multiply cubic meters by 35.3146 to get cubic feet

Multiply square meters by 10.7639 to get square feet

Can you help me i need a pump that will produce 1 GPM thru 250' x 1/2" tubing @ 10psi

You can convert pipe size to gallons per minute of flow by calculating the cross-sectional area of the pipe and making some reasonable assumptions about pipe volume and the rate of flow. Pipe sizing is measured by the internal diameter of the pipe, not the overall outside diameter. Once determined, the overall volume can be calculated. Pipe flow is described in gallons per minute. Shorter lengths of pipe will have a greater flow than a longer length of the same diameter. This is caused by internal resistance of the pipe itself. By the same reasoning a larger diameter pipe will have a greater flow or GPM than a smaller pipe at the same pressure or flow rate. Pressure is described as pounds per square inch. The square-inch measurement is determined by the area of the pipe. The pounds are the amount of force that is placed on the liquid to push it through the enclosed space.With that background, you can estimate the flow based on the pipe size.
Find the cross-section area of the pipe. Area is equal to pi times the radius squared or a = 3.14 x r2. A two-inch diameter pipe would have a cross-section area of 3.14 x 12 or 3.14 square inches.
Understand that water has a certain pressure associated with the height of that water. One pound of water pressure, or 1 PSI, is equal to 2.31 feet of elevation in height. In other words, a 1-inch column or pipe of water that is 2.31 feet high will have a pressure of 1 PSI. The overall height -- not volume -- of the pipe corresponds to the pressure. A 6-inch diameter pipe that is 2.31 feet high will only have 1 PSI.
Find the volume of the 2-inch diameter pipe in Step 1 that has a length of 10 feet. Ten feet is equal to 120 inches. Multiply 3.14 square inches, the cross sectional area, times the length. The volume of the pipe is equal to 376.8 cubic inches of volume.
Convert cubic inches into cubic feet. One cubic foot equals 1,728 cubic inches. Divide 376.8 cubic inches by 1,728 cubic inches per cubic foot and the answer is .218 cubic feet. This means that the 2-inch diameter pipe that is 10 feet long has an internal volume of .218 cubic feet.
Calculate the amount of water that can be contained in the section of pipe at any given time. One cubic foot of water is equal to 7.48 gallons. Multiply 7.48 gallons by .218 cubic feet and the amount of water in the pipe is equal to 1.63 gallons.
Find the GPM if the flow of water is one foot per second. Multiply the one-foot per second flow by 60 seconds per minute and the flow is now 60 feet per minute. In other words the water will flow through the 10-foot pipe six full volumes for every minute. Since the piping contains 1.63 gallons per 10 feet of pipe, multiply 1.63 by six and the final GPM is equal to 9.78 GPM of water flow from the 2-inch diameter pipe.

Convert 1 cubic yard to 1/4 in thick square feet

Each cubic foot would produce 48 square feet and there are 3 x 3 x 3 = 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

Will 51 cubic foot of foam insulation, cover 400 square feet of a wall?

That depends upon how thick the foam insulation is. That is the only way to compute from cubic feet to square feet.

To simplify, assume the foam is 1 foot wide by 1 foot thick by 51 feet long. That is 51 cubic feet of foam. If you slice the block lengthwise at 1 inch intervals, you get 12 slices, each 1 foot wide by 51 feet long by 1 inch thick. This is 51 square feet of coverage at 1 inch. You would be able to cover 51x12, or 612 square feet.

Increase the thickness of the slice to 1-1/2 inches, you only get 8 slices, or coverage for 408 square feet.

Any thicker than that, and you won't get enough coverage for 400 square feet.

How much area will be covered with 36.78 cubic feet of mulch please answer in feet and inches

How it Works

Stone and Mulch Calculators

As an example, let's use 500 square feet to be mulched at a
3" depth.
  1. First, the depth must be converted to feet. To convert inches to feet, simply divide inches by 12, the number of inches in a foot.

    So for our example: 3 inches divided by 12 equals a 0.25 foot depth.
  2. Now that we have the depth in feet, we can multiply the depth by the area.

    So for our example: 0.25 foot depth times 500 square feet equals 125 cubic feet.
  3. If you are calculating 0.5, 2, or 3, cubic foot bags, simply divide 125 cubic feet by the size of the bag.

    So for our example: if we are using 2 cubic foot bags, we can divide 125 cubic feet by 2 which equals 62.5 bags.
  4. If you are calculating cubic yards, we need to convert 125 cubic feet to cubic yards by dividing by 27. One cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet, see the diagram below.

    So for our example: 125 cubic feet divided by 27 equals 4.63 cubic yards.

For Your Information

  • 1 inch equals 0.08333 feet
  • 1.5 inches equals 0.125 feet

What is 9600 cubic ft converted to square ft?

Cubic foot is a unit of volume. Square foot is a unit of area. There is no direct conversion between them.

A 9600 cubic foot room with a ten-foot high ceiling is 960 square feet. If the roof is eight feet high, the area is 1200 square feet. If the roof is 12 feet high, the area is 800 square feet.

Cubic feet calculator

Cubic foot is a unit of volume. Square inch is a unit of area. There is no direct conversion between them.

An area of 144 square inches and a foot high would be one cubic foot. So would an area of one square inch and 144 feet high.

just under 18 cubic feet.
at 4 inches thick there will be 3 square feet to equal 1 cubic foot. there's .6 cubic feet in an 80 lb sac. I'd get 30 bags and be careful not to go over 4 inches deep to often.

If you want to calculate the volume of an object and have the answer in cubic feet.

Volume=Length X Width X Height
With the dimensions you give
Volume=12.5in X 37in X 20in
Volume=9250 cubic inches

To convert 9250 cubic inches into cubic feet you need to understand that there are 1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot.
L X W X H = 12"X12"X12"=1728 cu in

You then multiply 9250cu in and (1/1728cu ft) Really you are dividing 9250 by 1728.
your answer is 5.35 cubic feet.

12 inches in 1 foot
144 square inches in 1 square foot
1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot

to convert you put the unit you want to keep on top of the dividend.
to conver to to feet ( randomly selecting 100 inches)
Example converting 100 inches to feet

100inches X ____1ft____ = (100/12) = 8.3 feet

or cubic inches to cubic feet
4000 cubic inches to cubic feet

4000cu in X ____1cu ft____ = ( 2.33 cu ft)
1728 cu in

if you notice that the units on top and bottom of the dividend cancel each other out leaving the numerator (top number) as your unit.
it also works in reverse

2.33 cu ft X ___1728 cu in____ = (4000 cu in)
1cu ft
