## How to Convert Cubic Inches to Cubic Yards

To convert a measurement in cubic inches to a measurement in cubic yards, divide the volume by the following conversion ratio: 46,656 cubic inches/cubic yard.

Since one cubic yard is equal to 46,656 cubic inches, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cubic yards = cubic inches ÷ 46,656

The volume in cubic yards is equal to the volume in cubic inches divided by 46,656.

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 cubic inches to cubic yards using the formula above.
cubic yards = (50,000 in³ ÷ 46,656) = 1.071674 yd³

## What Is a Cubic Inch?

A cubic inch is a unit of volume equal to the space consumed by a cube with sides that are one inch in all directions. One cubic inch is equivalent to about 16.387 cubic centimeters or 0.554 fluid ounces.[1]

## What Is a Cubic Yard?

The cubic yard is a unit of volume that is equal to the space consumed by a cube with each edge measuring one yard.

The cubic yard is a US customary and imperial unit of volume. A cubic yard is sometimes also referred to as a cubic yd. Cubic yards can be abbreviated as yd³, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cu yard, cu yd, or CY. For example, 1 cubic yard can be written as 1 yd³, 1 cu yard, 1 cu yd, or 1 CY.

You can calculate volume using a cubic yardage calculator if you have the dimensions of a space or object.
