Use a standard calculator to convert cubic inches to cubic centimeters by multiplying the measurement in inches by 16.387064. Alternately, an online calculator designed for imperial to metric conversions can be used, such as those at The Calculator Site.
To convert cubic meters to cubic feet, multiply the volume in cubic meters by 35.315 to get the volume in cubic feet. Each cubic meter is approximately equal to 35.3 cubic feet.
Cubic inches are the expression of the volume of a three-dimensional object. For typical square or rectangular areas, multiple the length of each side in inches, according to Math.com.
A cubic foot is equal to 1,728 cubic inches. A cubic inch is equivalent to a volume that is 1 inch long by 1 inch wide by 1 inch deep.
Cubic meters, which measure volume, are converted to tons, which measure mass, by multiplying the number of cubic meters of a substance by its density in units of cubic meters per ton. Density is a physical property defined as the mass of a substance per unit volume.
The formula for calculating cubic inches depends on the geometric shape. For example, the formula for the volume of a rectangular solid is length x width x height, while the formula for a pyramid is (1/3) x base x height, according to Math.com.
Cubic yards can be converted to tons with the aid of a volume-to-weight conversion table. For instance, 1 cubic yard of uncompacted computer paper weighs approximately 655 pounds. Since 1 ton = 2,240 pounds, 1 cubic yard of the paper weighs 665/2240 tons or 0.292 tons.
