## Cubic Yards: A Unit of Volume

A cubic yard is a unit of volume that is commonly used in the United States and Canada. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one yard (three feet or 36 inches) in length. One cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet or about 0.765 cubic meters. The symbol for cubic yard is yd<sup>3</sup> or cu yd.

## How to Convert Cubic Yards

To convert cubic yard to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. For example, to convert cubic yard to liters, you need to multiply by 764.555, which is the number of liters in one cubic yard. To convert liters to cubic yard, you need to divide by the same factor.

Here are some common conversion factors for cubic yard:

• 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet
• 1 cubic yard = 46,656 cubic inches
• 1 cubic yard = 0.765 cubic meters
• 1 cubic yard = 764.555 liters
• 1 cubic yard = 201.974 US liquid gallons
• 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.

## Example Conversions of Cubic Yards to Other Units

Here are some examples of how to convert cubic yard to other units of volume:

• To convert 2 cubic yards to cubic feet, multiply by 27: 2 x 27 = 54 cubic feet.
• To convert 3 cubic yards to liters, multiply by 764.555: 3 x 764.555 = 2293.665 liters.
• To convert 4 cubic yards to US liquid gallons, multiply by 201.974: 4 x 201.974 = 807.896 US liquid gallons.
• To convert 5 cubic yards to imperial gallons, multiply by 168.179: 5 x 168.179 = 840.895 imperial gallons.
• To convert 6 cubic yards to cubic meters, multiply by 0.765: 6 x 0.765 = 4.59 cubic meters.
• To convert 7 cubic yards to cubic inches, multiply by 46,656: 7 x 46,656 = 326,592 cubic inches.
• To convert 8 cubic yards to crude barrels, multiply by 4.809: 8 x 4.809 = 38.472 crude barrels.
Cubic yards also can be marked as yd3.

## Definition of the Kiloliter

A kiloliter (symbol kl or kL) is a unit of volume that corresponds to one thousand liters (1000 liters) or one cubic meter (1 m3). It is a unit of volume in the metric system, which is based on the meter as the base unit of length.

One kiloliter is equal to 0.001 cubic meters, 61023.744 cubic inches, or 264.172 gallons.

## History of the Kiloliter

The kiloliter is derived from the liter, which is a unit of volume that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The liter was defined as one cubic decimeter (0.1 meter) in length, width, and height. The liter was later redefined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at its maximum density and standard atmospheric pressure. The current definition of the liter, adopted in 1964, is based on the cubic meter, which is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one meter in length.

The kiloliter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring large amounts of liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, fuel, air, and oxygen. The kiloliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The kiloliter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

## How to Convert Kiloliters
