How to Convert Cubic Feet to Cubic Meters

conversion scale showing cubic feet and equivalent cubic meters volume values

To convert a cubic foot measurement to a cubic meter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One cubic foot is equal to 0.028317 cubic meters, so use this simple formula to convert:

cubic meters = cubic feet × 0.028317

The volume in cubic meters is equal to the cubic feet multiplied by 0.028317.

For example, here's how to convert 5 cubic feet to cubic meters using the formula above.
5 ft³ = (5 × 0.028317) = 0.141584 m³
