## Cubic Yards Calculator

This cubic yards calculator finds the volume of any cubical shape in the unit of yards. In addition to that, it also provides:

- Step-by-step calculation
- Geometrical shape of the cube of the entered dimensions
- Conversion table containing the answer in different other units

**What are cubic yards?**

A cubic yard is a unit of volume in the Imperial and U.S. customary systems. It is often used in the United States for measuring large volumes, especially in construction, landscaping, and waste management.

1 cubic yard is equal to the volume of a cube with each side being 1 yard (3 feet) in length. So, a cubic yard can be visualized as a cube that is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet.

**How to find cubic yards?**

For this, it is important to know the dimensions of the cube. You can convert each side in yards first or alternatively convert the final answer to the yards.

**Example:**

A cube has a length of 150cm, a width of 2 meters, and a height of 1 yard. Find its volume in cubic yards.

**Solution:**

**Step 1:** Convert length from cm to yards.

Since 1 cm is equal to 0.011 yards, 150 cm is equal to

150 cm = 0.011 x 150 yards

= 1.64 yards

**Step 2:** Convert width from m to yards.

1 meter is equal to 1.094 yards so 2 meters will be

2 m = 1.094 x 2 yards

= 2.188 yards

**Step 3:** Multiply all sides to find volume.

Volume of cube = length x width x height

= 1.64 x 2.188 x 1

= 3.59 yd³

**Step 4:** Geometrical shape

**Conversions:**

1 cubic yard (yd³) = 27 cubic feet (ft³)

1 cubic yard (yd³) = 46,656 cubic inches (in³)

1 cubic yard (yd³) ≈ 0.7646 cubic meters (m³) in the metric system.

**Applications**

- When buying garden soil or mulch for landscaping, it's often sold by the cubic yard.
- In construction, concrete and gravel quantities might be referred to in cubic yards.
- Dumpsters and garbage trucks may have their capacities listed in cubic yards.
