## Definition of the Cubic Foot

A cubic foot (symbol ft3 or cu ft) is an imperial and US customary (non-metric) unit of volume, used in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one foot (0.3048 meter) in length.

One cubic foot is equal to 1728 cubic inches, 0.037037 cubic yards, or 0.02831685 cubic meters.

## History of the Cubic Foot

The cubic foot is derived from the foot, which is an ancient unit of length that was based on the length of a human foot. The foot was originally divided into 12 inches, and later into 16 digits or 4 palms. The foot was used in many different systems of measurement, such as the Roman, Egyptian, Greek, and English systems. The foot was standardized by King Henry I of England in the 12th century as the length of his own foot. The current definition of the foot, adopted in 1959, is based on the international yard, which is defined as 0.9144 meter.

The cubic foot was first used as a unit of volume for measuring wood in England in the 15th century. It was also used for measuring other materials and substances, such as stone, sand, coal, water, and air. The cubic foot was adopted as a standard unit of measure in the imperial system in 1824, along with other units such as the gallon, the bushel, and the barrel. The cubic foot was also used in the US customary system, which is similar but not identical to the imperial system. The cubic foot is still widely used today for various purposes, such as construction, engineering, commerce, and everyday life.

## How to Convert Cubic Feet

• Example: 0.074074 yd3 ÷ 0.037037 = 2 ft3
• To convert cubic meters to cubic feet, divide by 0.02831685.
• Example: 0.0566337 m3 ÷ 0.02831685 = 2 ft3
• To convert liters to cubic feet, divide by 28.3168466.
• Example: 56.6336932 L ÷ 28.3168466 = 2 ft3
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to cubic feet, divide by 7.48051948.
• Example: 14.96103896 gal ÷ 7.48051948 = 2 ft3
• To convert bushels (US) to cubic feet, divide by 0.803563954.
• Example: 1.607127908 bu ÷ 0.803563954 = 2 ft3

## Gills: A Unit of Volume

Gills are a unit of volume that are used to measure liquids, such as water, milk, oil, wine, etc. They are also used to measure some dry goods, such as grains, fruits, nuts, etc. They are different from cups, which are a smaller unit of volume. They are also different from liters, which are a larger unit of volume. They are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

## Definition of Gills

A gill is equal to one fourth of a pint in both the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. It is equivalent to 5 fluid ounces or 142.065 milliliters in the metric system.

## History of Gills

The origin of the term gill as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Old French word gille, which means a measure for wine or beer. Gills have been used since ancient times to store and transport various liquids and dry goods. The size and shape of gills varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of gills as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these gills was based on the wine gallon, which was originally defined as the volume of eight pounds of wine at 62 °F. The gill was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of gills as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The gill was gradually replaced by units such as liters, grams, etc. However, some countries and regions still use gills for certain types of liquids and dry goods, especially in the United Kingdom and Ireland and some Commonwealth nations.

## Where Gills are Used

Gills are mainly used in some countries and regions that use the imperial system or the US customary system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and adding liquids such as water, milk, oil, wine, etc., and dry goods such as grains, fruits, nuts, etc., to recipes.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, gills are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as liters, grams, etc.
