# How do you calculate foundation volume?

**concrete**, the formula for

**volume**is as follows: length x width x thickness. To determine how many bags of

**concrete**you will need, divide the total cubic yards needed by the yield.

Besides, what is the formula to calculate the volume of concrete?

**Calculating the volume** for **concrete** requires using three dimensions: length times width (which is area) times the height (thickness) or L x W x H. If you are using feet as your standard unit of measurement, this **formula** will give you the **volume of concrete** in cubic feet.

**Units of Measure**

- Volume = length x width x height.
- You only need to know one side to figure out the volume of a cube.
- The units of measure for volume are cubic units.
- Volume is in three-dimensions.
- You can multiply the sides in any order.
- Which side you call length, width, or height doesn't matter.

Similarly, you may ask, how much concrete do I need calculator?

Multiply the width times the length times the height (W x L x H). You can also use our volume **calculator** to find cubic yardage of a space. Convert the volume to cubic yards from cubic feet. To **do** so, divide the cubic footage by 27 to get the yards of **concrete** needed.

That means the **dry volume of concrete** ingredients is reduced 54% after adding water. in other words, the wet **volume of concrete** is increased by 54% in the **dry** condition. So, the **formula** of **dry volume of concrete** is, = wet **volume of concrete** x 1.54.
