Square foot is a measure of area, cubic foot is a measure of volume. There is no direct conversion between them.

For example, if you have 2048 square feet with a one foot ceiling, you would have 2048 cubic feet. If the ceiling was raised to ten feet, you would have 20480 cubic feet.

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 it Works
### Stone and Mulch Calculators

As an example, let's use 500 square feet to be mulched at a

3" depth.

### For Your Information

3" depth.

- 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. - 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. - 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. - 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.

- 1 inch equals 0.08333 feet
- 1.5 inches equals 0.125 feet
- 2 inc

First, we need to determine the number of square units in the Imperial system. We can choose to do the calculation in feet or inches.

Let's do it in inches first. There are 12" in a foot, so we multiply 90,000 by 12 to get 1,080,000 linear inches. Multiplying this by 41.3", we get 44,604,000 square inches. We can convert this to square feet by dividing the number of square feet by the square inches in a square foot. Since a square foot is one foot by one foot, or 12 inches by 12 inches, there are 144 square inches in a square foot. Dividing our previous answer by 144 will give us 309,750 square feet.

Converting to square metres. An inch is defined as 2.54 centimetres ("cm"). Thus, there are 2.54cm x 2.54cm in a square inch or 6.4516cm^2 in a square inch.

Using the 44,604,000 square inches we got above, and multiplying this by 6.4516, we get 287,767,166.4 square cm. There are 100 cm in a metre, so there are 100cm x 100cm in a square metre. So there are 10,000 square centimetres in a square metre. I get 28,776.7 square metres.

There are 3.280839895 feet in a metre. So there are 3.280839895 x 3.280839895, or 10.76391042 square feet in a square metre. Taking 309,750 square feet and dividing by the 10.76391042 we get 28,776.7 square metres.

Good luck.

Measure the length and width of each wall, and then add up the resulting answers. So, if a wall is 9' tall and 12' wide, it is 108 sq feet. If another wall is 9' tall and 11' wide, it is 99 square feet. Your total would now be 99 + 108 or 207 square feet.

If you are doing it in feet and inches, you have to covert the inches to feet by dividing them by 12, since there are 12' in a foot. So with 3", divide 3 by 12 and get 0.25.

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.
