## Definition of the Cubic Inch

A cubic inch (symbol in3 or cu in) is a unit of volume in the imperial and US customary (non-metric) units systems. It is the volume of a cube with each of its three dimensions (length, width, and height) being one inch (0.0254 meter) in length.

One cubic inch is equal to 0.000578704 cubic feet, 0.037037 cubic yards, or 0.016387064 liters.

## History of the Cubic Inch

The cubic inch is derived from the inch, which is an ancient unit of length that was based on the length of a human thumb. The inch was originally divided into 12 lines, and later into 16 digits or 4 barleycorns. The inch was used in many different systems of measurement, such as the Roman, Anglo-Saxon, English, and Scottish systems. The inch was standardized by King Edward II of England in 1324 as the length of three barleycorns laid end to end. The current definition of the inch, adopted in 1959, is based on the international yard, which is defined as 0.9144 meter.

The cubic inch was first used as a unit of volume for measuring solid objects in England in the 14th century. It was also used for measuring other materials and substances, such as wood, stone, metal, water, and air. The cubic inch 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 inch was also used in the US customary system, which is similar but not identical to the imperial system. The cubic inch is still widely used today for various purposes, such as engineering, commerce, and everyday life.

• To convert liters to cubic inches, divide by 0.016387064.
• Example: 0.032774128 L ÷ 0.016387064 = 2 in3
• To convert milliliters or cubic centimeters to cubic inches, divide by 16.387064.
• Example: 32.774128 mL or cm3 ÷ 16.387064 = 2 in3
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to cubic inches, divide by 0.00432900433.
• Example: 0.00865800866 gal ÷ 0.00432900433 = 2 in3
• To convert bushels (US) to cubic inches, divide by 0.000465025413.
• Example: 0.000930050826 bu ÷ 0.000465025413 = 2 in3

## Oil Barrels: A Unit of Volume

Oil barrels are a unit of volume that are used to measure crude oil and petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, etc. They are different from fluid barrels, which are used to measure other liquids, such as beer, wine, water, etc. Oil barrels 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 Oil Barrels

An oil barrel is defined as 42 US gallons or 0.159 cubic meters in the US customary system of measurement. It is equivalent to 34.9723 imperial gallons or 158.987 liters in the imperial system. An oil barrel is also equal to 5.6146 cubic feet or 6.2898 oil barrels in the metric system.

## History of Oil Barrels

The origin of the term barrel as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the French word baril, which means a small cask or keg. Barrels have been used since ancient times to store and transport various goods, especially liquids and dry grains. The size and shape of barrels 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 oil barrels as a unit of measure dates back to the 19th century, when the petroleum industry emerged in the United States and other countries. The first oil wells produced oil that was stored in wooden barrels that were readily available from the whiskey industry. The standard size of these barrels was 42 US gallons, which was also the size of a tierce, a unit of measure for wine and salt.

The use of oil barrels as a unit of measure became more widespread as the oil market developed and expanded globally. Oil barrels were convenient for measuring and transporting large quantities of oil across long distances by rail, ship, pipeline, etc. Oil barrels were also used for pricing and trading oil in various markets and exchanges.

## How to Convert Oil Barrels

To convert oil barrels to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

• To convert oil barrels to cubic meters: multiply by 0.159
• To convert oil barrels to liters: multiply by 158.987
• To convert oil barrels to cubic feet: multiply by 5.6146
• To convert oil barrels to gallons (US): multiply by 42
• To convert oil barrels to gallons (UK): multiply by 34.9723
• To convert oil barrels to BOE: divide by 6.2898

## Where Oil Barrels are Used

Oil barrels are mainly used in the United States and some other countries that still use the US customary system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and reporting the production, consumption, reserves, and trade of crude oil and petroleum products.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, oil barrels are sometimes used as an informal or approximate unit of volume for certain types of crude oil or petroleum products. For example, in Canada, heavy crude oil is sometimes sold by the barrel, which is equivalent to about 159 liters or 0.159 cubic meters.

In some countries that have their own traditional units of volume based on barrels or similar containers, such as India and China, oil barrels are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as tonnes (about 7.33 barrels), kilolitres (about 6.29 barrels), or tonnes of oil equivalent (about 7.1 barrels).

## Example Conversions of Oil Barrels to Other Units

Here are some examples of converting oil barrels to other units of volume:

• 1 oil barrel = 0.159 cubic meters
• 2 oil barrels = 317.974 liters
• 3 oil barrels = 16.8438 cubic feet
• 4 oil barrels = 168 gallons (US)
• 5 oil barrels = 174.8615 gallons (UK)
• 6 oil barrels = 0.9534 BOE
• 7 oil barrels = 1.113 BOE
US oil barrel can be abbreviated as US bbl oil.
