 # How many cubic feet’s in a Cubic Yard?

One foot is twelve inches long, and this size is exactly a third of the yard. If we draw a line on the ground using chalk and its one yard in length, then it is three feet long. If you want to turn the one-dimension area into two dimensions, then you need to use one side of your line as a square and a yard by yard in the measurement.

## How many feet in a square yard?

Two dimensions on the flat square are three feet long so, 3×3=9. There are 9 feet in a square yard.

### How to calculate cubic yards using inches and feet?

For this, you need to measure the square in the feet. Determine the depth of your material if you want to measure in the feet, you only need to skip to calculate. If you measure in feet and inches, then divide inches by twelve and add this to your feet measurement so that you will get the total feet.

### Calculate using depth in a square area

Area = 2x side length.

Volume = Depth x Area.

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

### Calculate using depth in a rectangle area

Area= Length x Width.

Volume= Depth x Area.

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

### Calculate using depth in a rectangle border area

Inner area= Length x width.

Total area= (Length + (2 x Border width)) x (Width + (2 x Border length)).

Area= Total area – inner area.

Volume= Depth x Area.

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

### Calculate using depth in a circular area

Area= Pi x diameter/2.

Volume= Depth x Area.

Outer Area = Pi x (outer diameter/2).

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

Pi= 3.14

### Calculate using depth in a circular border area

Outer diameter= Inner diameter.

Outer Area = Pi x (outer diameter/2).

Inner Area = Pi x (Inner diameter/2).

Area = outer Area – Inner area.

Volume = Depth x Area.

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

### Calculate using depth in an annulus area

Outer Area = Pi x (outer diameter/2).

Inner Area = Pi x (Inner diameter/2).

Area = outer Area – Inner area.

Volume = Depth x Area.

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

Pi = 3.14

### Calculate using depth a triangle area

Area = (1/4) x square root {(a+b+c) x (b+c-a) x (c+a-b) x (a+b-c)}.

Volume = Depth x Area.

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

### Calculate using depth in a trapezoid area

Area = ((a+b) /2) h.

Volume = Depth x Area.

Volume in cubic yards= Volume (ft3)/27.

If you want to turn the flat square into three dimensions, then you need to do 3x3x3 (length x width x height) = 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. If you are confusing about this, then don’t worry. There are many calculators available on google so you can go here and check at any time you want. Also, if you want to turn the one-dimension area into two dimensions, then you need to use one side of your line as a square and a yard by yard in the measurement.
