How to calculate interior of microwave; 21 x 14 x 10 inches?

Ad

Multiply 21 inches by 14 inches by 10 inches to get 2940 cubic inches. There are 12 inches in a foot, so there are 12^3=1728 cubic inches in a cubic foot. Divide 2940 cubic inches by 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot to get about 1.7 cubic feet.

Alternatively, first convert all measurements to feet. 21 inches is 1 3/4 feet, 14 inches is 1 1/6 feet, 10 inches is 5/6 feet. Multiply them together to get 245/144 cubic feet, which again is about 1.7 cubic feet.

It's always nice when doing a problem two different ways gives the same answer.

How it Works
### Stone and Mulch Calculators

As an example, let's use 500 square feet to be mulched at a

3" depth.

### For Your Information

3" depth.

- First, the depth must be converted to feet. To convert inches to feet, simply divide inches by 12, the number of inches in a foot.

So for our example: 3 inches divided by 12 equals a 0.25 foot depth. - Now that we have the depth in feet, we can multiply the depth by the area.

So for our example: 0.25 foot depth times 500 square feet equals 125 cubic feet. - If you are calculating 0.5, 2, or 3, cubic foot bags, simply divide 125 cubic feet by the size of the bag.

So for our example: if we are using 2 cubic foot bags, we can divide 125 cubic feet by 2 which equals 62.5 bags. - If you are calculating cubic yards, we need to convert 125 cubic feet to cubic yards by dividing by 27. One cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet, see the diagram below.

So for our example: 125 cubic feet divided by 27 equals 4.63 cubic yards.

- 1 inch equals 0.08333 feet
- 1.5 inches equals 0.125 feet
- 2 inc

Square feet is calculated L x W so 10x10 would be 100 sq. feet, Cubic feet is calculated by L x W x H so 15 x 14 x 9 = 1890 cubic feet

Multiply interior's height x width x depth. Ex: lets say 10 inches x 12 inches x 8 inches = 10 x 12 = 120 x 8 = 960. Divide 960 by 1728 (12 x 12 x 12) =. 56 cubic ft( point 56) just a tad more then half cubic ft.

Determining the cubic feet of any given appliance, Microwave, Oven, Freezer or Refrigerator is quite simple.

Follow these steps.

Open the door of your microwave and measure the length, width and height in inches of the interior cavity.

Multiply the length by the width by the height using a calculator to get the total in cubic inches.

Divide the cubic inches by 1,728, which is the volume of a cubic foot. The resulting number will be your microwave's measurement in cubic feet. You can also use an online conversion calculator to simplify matters

Hope that helps

20 inches times 30 inches times 20 inches is 12,000 cubic inches. There are 12 inches in a foot, so one foot is 12^3 or 1728 cubic feet. 12,000 cubic inches divided by 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot is about 6.9 cubic feet.

Hi, W/D here.

Here's an easy way to calculate your cubic feet: measure and multiply (in inches) the width X depth X height, then divide by 1728. This will give you cubic feet.

For example, if a microwave measured 18" wide X 18" deep X 12" high, it would be 3888 cubic inches; divided by 1728 (cubic inches in one cubic foot) = 2.25 cu.ft.

If you want to calculate the volume of an object and have the answer in cubic feet.

Volume=Length X Width X Height

With the dimensions you give

Volume=12.5in X 37in X 20in

Volume=9250 cubic inches

To convert 9250 cubic inches into cubic feet you need to understand that there are 1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot.

L X W X H = 12"X12"X12"=1728 cu in

You then multiply 9250cu in and (1/1728cu ft) Really you are dividing 9250 by 1728.

your answer is 5.35 cubic feet.

12 inches in 1 foot

144 square inches in 1 square foot

1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot

to convert you put the unit you want to keep on top of the dividend.

to conver to to feet ( randomly selecting 100 inches)

Example converting 100 inches to feet

100inches X ____1ft____ = (100/12) = 8.3 feet

12inches

or cubic inches to cubic feet

4000 cubic inches to cubic feet

4000cu in X ____1cu ft____ = ( 2.33 cu ft)

1728 cu in

if you notice that the units on top and bottom of the dividend cancel each other out leaving the numerator (top number) as your unit.

it also works in reverse

2.33 cu ft X ___1728 cu in____ = (4000 cu in)
