# Cubic Feet to Gallons Conversion (ft³ to gal)

• Last Updated : 13 Jul, 2022

The term volume defines the amount of space taken up by a three-dimensional object. Fundamental unit conversion is a widely used method in volume measurement. Calculating the conversion factor between the two units is one technique of converting from one to the other. Using these resources, complex mental computations may be avoided, and quick and exact answers can be obtained. It assists in the acquisition of precision and accuracy in volume value, which aids in the appropriate portrayal of the object’s space occupied.

Cubic foot

A cubic foot is the volume of a cube with one foot-long side. The symbol ft3 represents it. 1 cubic foot is also known as 1 cu.ft. or 1 ft3. It has a capacity of roughly 0.028 cubic meters.

Gallon

A gallon is equal to the volume of a cube which has a capacity of 8 pints. It is represented by the symbol gal. 1 gallon is written as 1 gal. It is approximately equal to 0.00378541 cubic meters.

Conversion of Cubic Foot to Gallon

The value of 1 cubic foot equals 7.48 gallons. To convert cubic feet to gallons, we have to multiply the given value of cubic feet by a factor of 7.48. For example, 4 cubic feet are converted into gallons as 4 × 7.48 = 29.92 gallons.

1 cubic foot = 7.48 gallons

Or

n × 1 cubic feet = n × 7.48 gallons
