Question #1589

A shipping container is 24 feet long, 5 feet wide and 6 feet high. (a) calculate its volume in cubic yards. (b) express this volume in cubic meters.

Expert's answer

Let's fing the volume in cubic feets.

V = 24*5*6 = 720 feet^{3}.

In one cubic foot there is 0.037 cubic yards. So

V[in yards^{3}] = 720*0.037 = 26.64 yard^{3}

In one cubic foot there is 0.0283 m^{3}:

V[in m^{3}] = 720 *0.0283 = 20.376 m^{3}.

V = 24*5*6 = 720 feet

In one cubic foot there is 0.037 cubic yards. So

V[in yards

In one cubic foot there is 0.0283 m

V[in m
