Yes, Gene
Since you want the volume in cubic yards (sometimes just called yards) you should change the dimensions to yards. There are 3 feet in a yard and hence 28 feet is 28/3 yards. There are 36 inches in a yard and hence 4 inches is 4/36 yards. The volume of a cylindrical slab is π r^{2} h where r is the radius and h is the height or thickness. The radius is half the diameter (14/3 yards) and thus you slab has a volume of
