area to gallon volume

Postby made2measure » Fri Mar 27, 2009 12:47 am

Hello, can any one tell me please how I convert 600mm x 122mm x 610mm to get the gallon volume of said area.
( I think it's 44.65200 m3 in area - but need help to get gallon volume)
Thank you.

Each dimension is less than 1 meter, so volume has to be less than 1 m³.

You can stick with millimeters and convert units of volume afterward, or you can convert units of length beforehand and multiply for volume in desired units.

I prefer to either use centimeters (getting volume in milliliters) or decimeters (getting volume in liters.

In reality, I convert in my head as I enter numbers in calulator, but converting
6 dm x 1.22 dm x 6.1 dm = 44.652 dm³ = 44.652 L.

There are 3.7854 L per gallon, so 11.8 US gallons.
