# Cubic Feet to Cubic Yards Calculator

Some **cubic units** are used to measure the **volume** of the **same type of objects, shapes**, and **materials **. Due to this, it is important to learn **how to interconvert** those units precisely because you have to do so in various conditions. One of the most common conversions is from **cubic feet to cubic yards**.

The reason is both units are normally used to **measure the size of objects, places**, and **shapes**. That’s why it is common to convert one of these units to the other. If you don’t know the relationship between these units, you can’t accomplish this task. For this purpose, we recommend you use the cubic feet to **cubic yards calculator**. It is a maths calculator that can **quickly** perform this **calculation without** showing any **errors**. Learn here in detail about this conversion and usage of this calculator.

## What are cubic yards?

A **cubic yard** is a **customary** unit used particularly in the **United States** to measure the **volume of a cube** with a measurement of 1 yard for all sides. It means if a cube has all **sides of 1 yard**, the **volume** of that cube will be **1 cubic yard**.

This volume-measuring unit is not used widely in other parts of the world. It is a **bigger unit** than the other one we are going to compare in the following sections. That’s why it is normally used to **measure** the **volume** of a **garden**, **park**, or something bigger like this. To show volume in this unit, we need to write “yd3” just beside the number showing the measurements.

### What are cubic feet?

A **cubic foot** is another **volume measuring unit, smaller** than a **cubic yard**, that is also used in the **United States** normally. It is also a **customary unit** used for this measurement instead of based on the SI unit. A **cubic foot** is defined as the **volume **of a **box** or **cube** with measures of **all sides of 1 foot**.

This unit is normally used to measure the volume of a small box or cubic shape. To show a measurement in this unit, we write “ft ^{3}” beside the measurements.

### How to calculate cubic feet to cubic yards?

To learn how to calculate a measurement given in cubic feet into cubic yards, you need to first understand the relationship between these units.

1 cubic foot = 0.037 cubic yards

Similarly,

1 yard = 27 cubic feet

By using these conversions, you can easily convert the measurements given in one unit to the other. To let you understand the process, we have solved an example here.

**Example 1:**

Convert 267 cubic feet into cubic yards.

**Solution:**

As we know,

1 cubic foot = 0.037 cubic yards

So,

267 ft^{3}= 267 x 0.037 yd^{3}

= 9.89 yd^{3}
