Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another

## Forum rules

Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

You can't directly covert square to cubic units as they measure different things. Square units measure area, cubic units measure capacity.

Let's say you have a box. If you know the area of it's floor AND you know it height, you can calculate capacity by multiplying those. But knowing only the floor area you can't get the box capacity as it depends on the height.
