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.
Let's fing the volume in cubic feets. V = 24*5*6 = 720 feet3. In one cubic foot there is 0.037 cubic yards. So V[in yards3] = 720*0.037 = 26.64 yard3 In one cubic foot there is 0.0283 m3: V[in m3] = 720 *0.0283 = 20.376 m3.
