# How to calculate cubic measurement of wood log

Cubic measurement is a three-dimensional measure of volume. If you have a cubic measurement in another unit, you can easily convert it to cubic feet. With a few simple steps you can find the number of common shapes such as square prisms and cylinders.

The cubic foot or volume of a cylinder log gives the volume V = πhr 2 of a cylinder. A log 2 feet in diameter and 10 feet high will have a volume of about 125.66 cubic feet (or 3 feet). The volume is the height of the base time and the base area is also the area of ​​a circle (A = 2r 2).

This formula assumes that the logs are perfect or perfect cylinders. Similarly, for a cubic meter volume, the distance and height must be in meters. Height should be measured from one base center to the middle of another.

When converting between different volume sizes, be sure to increase the value of the volume by how many units are needed to convert between different sizes when calculating the sizes of the units.

## Calculating cubic feet for different units (formulae)

• From feet: length (ft) × width (ft) × height (ft) = cubic feet
• From inches: length (in) × width (in) × height (in) ÷ 1728 = cubic feet
• From yards: length (yd) × width (yd) × height (yd) × 27 = cubic feet
• From cm: length (cm) × width (cm) × height (cm) ÷ 28316.85 = cubic feet
• From meters: length (m) × width (m) × height (m) × 35.314667 = cubic feet
