Question from Logan, a student:

if i have 188.4cm^3 of concrete how do i change it into cubic yards?

Hi Logan,

There are 2.54 cm in an inch and 36 inches in a yard so


This is a very small volume to express in cubic yards. Are you sure it's not 188.4 m3?

Google can do this conversion for you. If you type 188.4 cubic centimeters in cubic yards into the Google search window and you will receive 188.4 (cubic centimeters) = 0.000246417897 cubic yards.
