Question How to figure cu. ft. for freezer

I thought cubic feet was figured by length x width x height but I can't get something to compute. We are trying to buy a new freezer and my grandparents want to buy our old one from us. I've tried every way I can to figure the cubic feet and it just won't add up. What am I doing wrong??

The most common mistake is using different measurement units.

For example, if you measure one in inches and the other in feet, the result will not be correct.

Here is the correct way:
length in inches * height in inches * depth in inches = cubic inches
or
length in feet * height in feet * depth in feet = cubic feet

You can convert between cubic feet and cubic inches on the volume conversion page.

Do you measure the inside of the freezer or the outside?

For the capacity of food it will hold, use inside dimensions.

Cubic feet is the inside storage capacity of the freezer. Measure and mulitply length x height x width of the storage area to get cubic feet.
If you need overall dimensions, measure the length x width x height of the outside of the freezer to find out if it will fit where you want to put it.

12 inches (length) x 12 inches (height) x 12 inches (depth) = 1728 cubic inches which equals 1 cubic foot

for example:

36 inches x 32 inches x 16 inches = 18432 cubic inches

divide 18432 cubic inches by 1728 cubic inches (1 cubic ft)

your answer is: 10.6 cubic feet
