# Cubic Feet and Cubic Meters Converter

When looking to convert between different units of volume, our Cubic Feet and Cubic Meters Converter is the perfect tool for the job. Whether you’re working on a construction project, shipping goods, or simply trying to understand a given space’s overall dimensions, converting between cubic feet and cubic meters can be vital. In this guide, we’ll explain the necessary formulas and provide a worked example calculation to help you understand the conversion process.

**The Formulas**

1 ~cubic ~meter ~(m^3) \\= 35.3147 ~cubic ~feet ~(ft^3)

To convert from cubic meters to cubic feet, you can use the following formula:

cubic ~feet ~(ft^3) \\= cubic ~meters ~(m^3) * 35.3147

Conversely, to convert from cubic feet to cubic meters, you can use this formula:

cubic ~meters ~(m^3) \\= cubic ~feet ~(ft^3) ~/~ 35.3147

It’s important to keep in mind that these conversions are not exact due to rounding. However, they are accurate enough for most practical purposes.

**Worked Example Calculation**

Let’s say you’re working on a construction project and need to determine how much concrete to order for a specified area. You know the area’s dimensions in feet and need to convert them to cubic meters to ensure you order the correct volume of concrete. In this example, we’ll use the following dimensions:

Unit | Example |
---|---|

Length | 15 ft |

Width | 10 ft |

Height | 8 ft |

**Step 1**: Calculate the volume in cubic feet

First, we need to determine the volume of the area in cubic feet. To do this, we can use the formula:

volume (ft^3) \\= length (ft) * width (ft) * height (ft)

Plugging the dimensions into the formula, we get:

volume (ft^3) = 15 ~ft * 10 ~ft * 8 ~ft

volume (ft^3) = 1200 ft^3

**Step 2**: Convert the volume to cubic meters

Now that we have the volume in cubic feet, we can use the conversion formula to find the volume in cubic meters:

cubic ~meters (m^3) \\= cubic ~feet (ft^3) / 35.3147

Plugging in the volume we calculated in Step 1, we get:

cubic ~meters (m^3) \\= 1200 ft^3 / 35.3147

cubic ~meters (m^3) ≈ 34 m^3

So, the volume of the area in cubic meters is approximately 34 m³.

**Using the Cubic Feet and Cubic Meters Converter**
