Could anyone please guide me for correct caclulation.

A Wood Size

L x W x T
1250 x 100 x 25

All mm

How much it would be in Cubic Meters

Thanks & Bye

The forumula for volume is:
Volume = Length * Width * Height

They just all need to be in the same base unit, as yours already are.

1,250 millimeter * 100 millimeter * 25 millimeter = 3,125,000 cubic millimeter

You can then convert cubic millimeter to cubic meter on the Volume conversion page, or just divide by 1,000,000,000.

3,125,000 cubic millimeter = 0.003125 cubic meter

Please convert this mesurment in cubic meter

2 Inch X 12 Inch X 13 Feet

is how much Cubic meter

2 in x 12 in x 13 ft x (0.0254 m/in)² x 0.3048 m/ft = 0.0614 m³

Don't know as you didn't give the height. 60" = 5', so the floor area is 20' x 5' = 100 ft². Multiply by height in feet for cubic feet.

To convert to metric, multiply by 0.3048 m/ft once for length, twice for area, or three times for volumes.

2 inch x 4 inch x13 feet = convert in m3

JohnS

2 inch x 4 inch x13 feet = convert in m3

0.0508 m x 0.1016 m x 3.9624 m = 0.0205 m³
If you measure in meters, it is more straightforward.

Pls convert either into cubic feet or meter... the followings are measurement of a wood log

Length=10' (feet)
Circumference (girth)=5' (feet)

3 feet dia x 10 feet length how to measure in cu.ft

Formula for volume of a cylinder: PI * radius2 * length

Formula using the diameter instead of the radius: (PI/4) * diameter2 * length

(3.1415927 / 4) * 32 * 10 =
0.7854 * 9 * 10 = x ft3

Tnx.

Solving for cu. ft.

Dia. = circumference/ pi = 3.1416
= 5' /3.1416 = 1.59 '

Vol.= A X lenght

Area= 3.1416 X (1.59)(1.59)/4
= 1.99 sq. inch

Vol = 1.99 X 10 = 19.9 cu. ft.

Convert the inch measurements to feet by dividing by 12. Then just multiply the three numbers for cubic feet, 0.61 ft³.

Since two measurements are in inches, you will divide by 12 twice (144), so you could just multiply the three numbers and divide by 144 if you prefer. I think the first way is clearer.

It will also depend on the diameter of the tree.

i confuse the formula of cubic meters ,when i used L x W x H . MY FRIEND SAID THAT IS NOT CORRECT. For example the bundle size of wood is 62 in x 42 in x 26 in and my answer is 1.1094 cubic meters but they said that is wrong, why ?

Assuming the shape is a rectangular solid, your anser is correct. If two of the dimensions represnt an oval or elliptical cross-section, it would be a bit less.
There'd be less conversion (none) if you measured in meters.

Is the burden of proof on you that your answer is correct, or is the burden of refutation on him to prove you wrong?

Put the burden on him. Have him post his numbers and answer and assumptions.

Convert feet into inches then 3 feet =36 inch and 10 feet = 120inch
36x120=4320/1728 = 2.5 cu.ft.
1728 is formula.

Board feet is the length of board that is one foot wide and an inch thick. Divide by 12 for cubic feet.

hi... In my opinion you need to consider the specific density of the wood.... You can't multiply just like that...

You only need density if you wish to convert from volume to mass. Volume is determined by multiplying the dimensions, per a shape formula. (cylinders have a different formula than rectangular solids)

It would have been easier to measure in meters, but converting and rounding to nearest millimeter, those dimensions are 1.829, 1.219, and 0.610 m

The floor area is 1.829 m x 1.219 m = 2.23 m²
and the volume, 1.36 m³.

1) Multiply the dimensions to get volume in cubic inches
2) Divide by 1728 in³/ft³ to get cubic feet

1728 = 12³ where 12 is the number of inches in a foot.

2.1336 m x 1.524 m x 1.524 m = 4.96 m³
You could fit nearly 5 m³ of stacked wood, including the air space between logs, maybe 3 - 3.5 m³ of actual wood

I don't know what "saley" is? Some kind of unit?

Anyway, the amount of glass is roughly the square footage of the finished window, but the wood is trim around the perimeter and between panes. The total amount will be very dependent on the details of the window design. I would have no idea how to estimate it without a detail drawing.

Convert everything to meters:
