Hello All,
I am trying to calculate the volume of several packed boxes for shipping. The value they need from me is to be in cubic meters. I only have a tape
that measures in inches/feet. I know L x W x H = cubic. My problem is that once i convert to metric all the numbers get wonkey.
Example;
24" x 19" x 21" = 9576" cubed. divide by 1728 to get 5.55 cubic feet(rounding up to the hundredth)
Converting this with an online converter into metric the result is
0.16 cubic meters(again rounding up)
0.16 cubic meters does not even sound close.
Am i just imagining it should be more?
did i calculate incorrectly?
Any help guidance is appreciated. I need to arraign for a cross pacific move and this part is vital to my goal.
