One cubic foot equals how many square feet?
Cubic foot is a measure of volume. Square foot is a measure of
area. You can't compare the two quantities because they have
x cubic feet divided by 1 square foot equals 1 foot ( xfff/ff=xf ),
providing the answer:
There are 1 foot square feet in a cubic foot.
x cubic feet is also x square feet times 1 (linear) foot (
xfff=(xff)f ), which doesn't answer the question as phrased, but
expresses the relationship between square and cubic feet in a
It is just a matter of semantics to say "a cubic foot does not
equal any number of square feet" if you've been asked for the cubic
footage of a room by an air conditioner installer, and you've
measured off the square footage, but you don't know how to get to
that elusive cubic footage the installer asked for!
Applying the theory above, all you have do is multiply the area
of the floor that you already determined by one more
dimension---the height of the ceiling---and change the unit you
specify for your result from square feet to cubic feet.
