Cubic Meter Calculation

I need to find out how many pieces of size 950mm * 140mm * 18mm I can create from 20 cubic meters. How do I calculate this? TIA

Re: Cubic Meter Calculation

your figures 950mm x 140mm x 18 mm = 2,394,000 cubic mm

it might be easier to convert the mm in centimeters

95cm x 14cm x 1.8 cm = 2394 cubic centimeters

2394 cubic centimeters is 0.002394 of a cubic meter

20 / 0.002394 = 83542.1288

Oops, looks like that last step in the calculation is off by a factor of 10 too large....

20 / 0.002394 = 8354.2

Also, abdlah, it's not clear from your question whether you are molding these pieces from a fluid substance, or whether you are cutting them out of a block of solid material.

If you're cutting them out of a solid block, then you may not be able to avoid wasting a certain amount of material if each dimension (length, width, height) is not an exact multiple of your individual pieces. This would give you fewer pieces than calculated above.

Re: Cubic Meter Calculation

1 cubic meter = 264.172025 gallons
135*264.172025 = 35,663.2 gallons

1 cubic meter is 1 m x 1 m x 1 m
Since 100 cm = 1 m, it is also
100 cm x 100 cm x 100 cm = 10^6 cm³
