### How many sheets of 4'x8' plywood is needed to cover an area of 43'x32'?

It depends upon which direction you put the plywood.
You could use 4-8' lengths to cover the 32' by 11-4' lengths to
cover the 43', cutting off 1 foot of the last row of sheets. That
would be a total of 44 sheets.
If you went the other direction, then it would take 8-4' lengths
to cover the 32' and 6-8' lengths to cover the 43', cutting off 5'
of the last row of sheets. This method would take a total of 48
sheets.

### What is plywood like?

Plywood is a composite wood material where multiple layers of
thin wood veneer are glued together, usually with the grain of each
ply perpendicular to the adjacent layers. It comes in various
thicknesses, numbers of plys, wood species, etc. Most plywood is
made in 4 foot by 8 foot sheets, but other sizes are available.

### Where can 5 foot wide plywood be purchased?

Your local lumber-yard probably only sell plywood in 8 ft by 4
ft sheets, this is the size most frequently required by the average
Do It Yourselfer, or carpenter.
To get custom sized sheets, you will probably need to contact a
manufacturer directly. You could ask the manager/owner of you local
lumber-yard, who manufactures their plywood, or if they can get you
what you need on special order.

### What is weight per square foot of Plywood?

It depends what the "ply" value is ... the number of layers
glued together. For instance, 1/2" plywood is going to be lighter
then 3/4" plywood.
A common rule of thumb is a 4x8 foot sheet of 1/4" fir plywood
weighs 25 pounds. There are 32 square feet in a sheet, so a square
foot of 1/4" fir plywood weighs about 0.78 pounds. Since 1/2" is
twice as thick as 1/4", 1/2" fir plywood weighs twice as much, or
1.56 lbs, and 3/4" three times as much, or about 2.34 lbs.
Fir plywood is common, but other species are available. Weight
varies considerably between species of wood, so be aware the weight
of plywood of different species can be different.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### How much water fills one square foot?

Technically, none. A square foot is a measure of area whereas it
is the volume of water that is required. To convert from area to
volume it is necessary to know the depth.
A twelfth of a cubic foot will cover an area of one square foot
to a depth of 1 inch. A cubic foot will cover it to a depth of 1
foot, 100 cubic feet will cover it to a depth of 100 feet.
