## What Is a Cubic Yard?

A cubic yard is a unit used to measure volume.

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.

## How Much 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.

## How to Convert Cubic Yards

To convert cubic yards to another unit of volume, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for cubic yards in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the volume measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

cubic yards × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
