Cubic feet in a Yard of Concrete

A cubage unit is that the volume of fabric which inserts in a very house one yard wide by one yard deep by one yard high. Cubic yards are used to measure the materials required for your garden concrete.

Unit of measurement changes with work, material, state, country wise and for some specified work. To perfume that work we have to convert measuring units like length, width, area, volume to different units.

Common materials that square measure measured in three-dimensional yards include:

• Concrete
• Gravel
•  Sand
• Rock
• Fill dirt
• Topsoil
• Mulch
• Compost

To determine the number of materials you wish in three-dimensional yards, you need to 1st convert all 3 dimensions to an equivalent unit of measure. There are:

• 1 cubic yard is equal 27 cubic feet ( 3 feet x 3 feet x 3 feet)
• 1 cubic yard = 46,656 cubic inch (36 inch x 36 inch x 36 inch)
• 1 yard  is equal 36 inch or 3 feet
• 1 yard = 3 feet

For example, if we take a volume of concrete of 9 inches thick by 12 feet long by 12 feet wide:

Convert the inches to feet = 9 inch ÷ 12 inch = 0.75 feet

Multiply the length, width and thickness together to find the number of cubic feet = 0.75’ x 12’ x 12 = 108 cubic feet = 0.75’ x 12’ x 12 = 108 cubic feet

Now, we know that 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet, and then divide 108 cubic feet volume of concrete by 27.

= 108 / 27 = 4 cubic yard concrete.

(Simple Tip: for converting cubic feet to cubic yard divide the volume of concrete which is in cubic feet by 27)

You can try it by converting all units in the cubic yard also,

1. Convert the dimension in inches to yards = 9” ÷ 36” = 0.25 yards

2.  Convert the dimensions in feet to yards = 12’ ÷ 3 = 4 yards

3.  Multiply the three dimensions together to find the number of cubic yards = 0.25 x 4 x 4 = 4 cu. yd.
