Default Cubic feet into square feet

I need help: what is 2360 cubic feet divided by 8 feet equal how much square feet? I first need an answer to it. I understand the equation --square feet= cubic feet (ft^3) / height in feet (ft) but has to be a conversion for the feet(ft) to divide the cubic feet (ft^3). I need to know what is 1 cubic foot equals what in feet?? is .000?? something. Thanks.

2360 cubic feet / 8 feet = 295 square feet

That formula works for most shapes, but really it depends on what it is you are trying to do.

cubic meter is a volume not an area. square feet is a measure of area 1 inch = 2.54 cm 1 foot = 30.48 cm 1 foot = .3048 m

Depends on thickness.

One cubic foot is an area of 1 sq ft, 1 foot thick
OR 2 sq ft, 0.5 ft thick
OR 12 sq ft, 1 inch thick, etc, etc

Question Cubic feet into square feet

A 20 year old tree is 30 cm in diameter and 12 meters tall. I know that you have to use the formula, "3.14*r^2*h".

-I got 847800 cubic centimeters. Is that correct?

-And if you assume it is the same density as water, it would be 847800 cubic grams.

Am I right so far?

You are correct so far. The 3.14 is actually pi, which has an infinite number of decimal places. 3.1416 or 3.14159 are slightly more accurate values.

Usually the trunk tapers toward the top, so you might use the formula for part of a cone, and trees are usually slightly lighter than water. Depending on the accuracy you want, there are ways to improve the estimate but it gets you in the ballpark.
