## 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.

• 1 cubic yard = 168.179 imperial gallons

## Where Cubic Yard is Useds

Cubic yard are used to measure the volume of various materials, such as soil, sand, gravel, concrete, mulch, compost, etc. They are also used to estimate the amount of space needed for storage or transportation of these materials.

For example, in landscaping and gardening, cubic yard are used to calculate how much soil or mulch is needed to fill a garden bed or cover a lawn. A general rule of thumb is that one cubic yard covers 100 square feet at a depth of three inches.

In construction and engineering, cubic yard are used to measure the volume of concrete or asphalt needed for a project. For example, a driveway that is 10 feet wide and 40 feet long and has a thickness of four inches would require about 4.9 cubic yards of concrete.

Cubic yard are also used in some countries to measure the volume of waste or recyclables collected by garbage trucks or dumpsters. For example, in Canada, a standard garbage truck can hold about 25 cubic yards of waste.

## Definition of the Cubic Yard

A cubic yard is a unit of volume that belongs to the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. It is derived from the unit of length, the yard, which was originally defined as the distance from the tip of the nose to the end of the thumb of King Henry I of England.

A cube is a three-dimensional shape that has six equal square faces. The volume of a cube is calculated by multiplying the length of one side by itself three times. Therefore, the volume of a cube with sides of one yard is one yard times one yard times one yard, or one cubic yard.

## History of Cubic Yards

The origin of the cubic yard can be traced back to the ancient Roman unit of measurement, the amphora, which was a clay vessel used to store liquids such as wine or oil. One amphora was equivalent to about 0.026 cubic meters or 0.035 cubic yards.

The amphora was later replaced by the tun, which was a large wooden barrel used to store wine or beer. One tun was equivalent to about 0.953 cubic meters or 1.28 cubic yards.

The tun was then divided into smaller units, such as the hogshead, the barrel, and the gallon. The gallon was originally defined as the volume of eight pounds of wheat. In 1824, the British Parliament standardized the imperial gallon as the volume of 10 pounds of water at 62 degrees Fahrenheit, which is equal to about 4.546 liters or 0.0012 cubic yards.

In 1836, the US Congress adopted the wine gallon as the standard US liquid gallon, which is equal to about 3.785 liters or 0.001 cubic yards.

The cubic yard was officially adopted as a unit of measurement in both Britain and the United States in the late 19th century.
