You can use our volume calculator to find the volume of wood if you like. Since you want the volume in cubic feet, we first convert the measurements to feet:
The volume of wood is the length of the pole times the crosssectional area. A circle (the crosssection) has an area equal to π times the square of the radius. The radius is the circumference divided by 2π. So the volume of the wood you have is:
Thus your volume of wood in cubic feet is 20 × 5^{2} ÷ (4π). Cheers,
