Cubic Inches - A Unit of Volume

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.

How to Convert Cubic Inches

To convert cubic inches to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert cubic inches to cubic feet, multiply by 0.000578704.
    • Example: 2 in3 × 0.000578704 = 0.001157408 ft3
  • To convert cubic inches to cubic yards, multiply by 0.000037037.
    • Example: 2 in3 × 0.000037037 = 0.000074074 yd3
  • To convert cubic inches to liters, multiply by 0.016387064.
    • Example: 2 in3 × 0.016387064 = 0.032774128 L
  • To convert cubic inches to milliliters or cubic centimeters, multiply by 16.387064.
    • Example: 2 in3 × 16.387064 = 32.774128 mL or cm3
  • To convert cubic inches to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.00432900433.
    • Example: 2 in3 × 0.00432900433 = 0.00865800866 gal
  • To convert cubic inches to bushels (US), multiply by 0.000465025413.
    • Example: 2 in3 × 0.000465025413 = 0.000930050826 bu

To convert other units of volume to cubic inches, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert cubic feet to cubic inches, divide by 0.000578704.
    • Example: 0.001157408 ft3 ÷ 0.000578704 = 2 in3
  • To convert cubic yards to cubic inches, divide by 0.000037037.
    • Example: 0.000074074 yd3 ÷ 0.000037037 = 2 in3
  • 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

Tablespoons: A Unit of Volume

Tablespoons are a unit of volume that are used to measure small amounts of liquids, such as water, milk, oil, vinegar, etc. They are also used to measure some dry ingredients, such as sugar, salt, flour, etc. They are different from teaspoons, which are a smaller unit of volume. Tablespoons are also different from fluid ounces, which are a larger unit of volume. Tablespoons 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 Tablespoons

A tablespoon is defined as 15 milliliters (ml) in the metric system of measurement. It is equivalent to 0.5 fluid ounces or 0.0625 cups in the US customary system. A tablespoon is also equal to 0.053 imperial cups or 0.0042 imperial gallons in the imperial system.

History of Tablespoons

The origin of the term tablespoon as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the French word cuiller à soupe, which means a spoon for soup. Spoons have been used since ancient times to eat and serve various foods, especially liquids and soft solids. The size and shape of spoons varied depending on the type and quantity of the foods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of tablespoons as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these spoons was about 15 ml, which was also the size of a scruple, a unit of measure for apothecaries and pharmacists. The tablespoon was convenient for measuring and dispensing small amounts of liquids and powders for medicinal purposes.

The use of tablespoons as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The tablespoon was gradually replaced by units such as milliliters, grams, etc. However, some countries and regions still use tablespoons for certain types of liquids and dry ingredients, especially in cooking and baking.

How to Convert Tablespoons

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

  • To convert tablespoons to milliliters: multiply by 15
  • To convert tablespoons to fluid ounces: multiply by 0.5
  • To convert tablespoons to cups: multiply by 0.0625
  • To convert tablespoons to gallons (US): multiply by 0.00390625
  • To convert tablespoons to gallons (UK): multiply by 0.0042
  • To convert tablespoons to BOE: divide by 23876

Where Tablespoons are Used

Tablespoons are mainly used in cooking and baking in some countries and regions that still use the US customary system or the imperial system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and adding liquids such as water, milk, oil, vinegar, etc., and dry ingredients such as sugar, salt, flour, etc., to recipes.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, tablespoons are sometimes used as an informal or approximate unit of volume for certain types of liquids and dry ingredients. For example, in Canada, maple syrup is sometimes sold by the tablespoon, which is equivalent to about 15 ml or 0.015 liters.

In some countries that have their own traditional units of volume based on spoons or similar utensils, such as India and China, tablespoons are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as chhatak (about 59 ml), chammach (about 10 ml), or shao (about 15 ml).

Example Conversions of Tablespoons to Other Units

Here are some examples of converting tablespoons to other units of volume:

  • 1 tablespoon = 15 milliliters
  • 2 tablespoons = 1 fluid ounce
  • 3 tablespoons = 0.1875 cups
  • 4 tablespoons = 0.015625 gallons (US)
  • 5 tablespoons = 0.021 gallons (UK)
  • 6 tablespoons = 0.000252 BOE
  • 7 tablespoons = 0.000294 BOE
US tablespoon can be abbreviated as T, tb, tbs, tbsp, tblsp, or tblspn.
