To convert square feet to square inches x 144 (i.e 12 x 12)

1200 x 144 = 374400

Multiply by 5 (depth) to give cubic inches

374400 x 5 = 1872000

To convert cubic inches to cubic feet divide by 46656 (36 x 36 x 36)

1872000 / 46656 = 40.123456789

Hope this helps,

Matt

### What is the cubic yard of a circle that is 10.82feet diameter x 16inches deep?

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:

### I need to know how much stone in tons I need to fill 8.5 acre at 1.5 ft depth

Stone is approximated at about 2700 lbs. per cu. yd.
An acre is 43560 sq. ft.
8.5 acres is 370260 sq. ft.
There 9 sq.ft. per sq. yd., thus there are 41140 sq. yds. in 8.5 acres.
A cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet (LxWxH).
Since you are only going to be at 1.5 feet, each square yard is equal to 1/2 cubic yard, so to figure the cubic yards divide sq.yds. by 2, thus you get 20570 cu. yds. of stone.

20570 x 2700 = 55539000 pounds. Divide by 2000 to get tons:
55539000/2000 = 27769.5 tons.

### Area 40 ft long 4ft wide 5 inches deep how many sq yards needed

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.

### How many cu yards to cover 196 sq ft to a depth of 2 1/2"

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!!!!

### How do i convert 60 tons of ashpalt to square yards

AC is approx. 145 lbs per cubic ft.
there are 27 cubic ft in 1 cubic yard
60 tons x 2000 = 120000 divided by 145 = 827.58 cubic ft divided by 27 = 30.65 cubic yards

square yards would depend on thickness of AC.
you can take thickness x sq ft to get cubic ft

in concrete 1 cubic yard =
4 inch thickness = 81 sq ft or 9 sq yrds
6 inch thickness = 54 sq ft or 6 sq yards

### 200 yards to cubic feet than cubic feet to tons for chicken manure that's been composted

You say 200yds do you mean 200 sq yds or cubic yds? There are 9 cubic feet in a square yard 1ft deep and 27 cubic ft in a cubic yard. You will have to know and factor in the weight of 1 cubic ft of manure to get your tonnage. 2,000 lbs in a short ton.

### Ehow com

There isn't one. Square foot is a unit of area, cubic yard is a unit of volume.

What's the volume in cubic yards of a room that's 10 feet by 12 feet? That depends on how high the ceiling is. Without the third dimension, there is no way to convert.

### Convert 2,000 cubic ft to sq ft

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

Let's say you have 2000 cubic feet of mulch. That can cover a 2000 square foot yard one foot deep. It can also cover a one square foot flowerbed 2000 feet deep.
