Calculate Calculate your area (see below) Calculate your volume: Multiply area times the depth, this will be volume in cubic feet Calculate your cubic yards: Divide cubic feet by 27 to convert to cubic yards and this is your answer Where (ft2) = square foot, (ft3) = cubic foot, (yd3) = cubic yardHow many cubic feet are in a yard?
One yard is three feet so you can fit 3 3 = 9 "cubic foot" boxes on the bottom of a "cubic yard" box.How do you calculate cubic yards?
Cubic yards can be calculated by multiplying the length by the width by the height of a given volume. For such a calculation, all three measurements must already be in yards. When necessary, convert from feet to yards by dividing the number of feet by three.
