  • less than one, there are roughly 7.5 gallons in a cubic foot.

    So each 5 gallon bucket is about 2/3 of a cubic foot.

    A cubic yard (27 cubic feet) would fill approximately 40.5 - 5 gallon buckets.

  • I am SO confused !

    1728 cubic inches in a cubic foot.

    Diameter of a STANDARD 5 gallon paint bucket is WHAT ? I am talking about the Home Depot / Lowe's standard advertising bucket - it should be the same as a 5 gallon bucket of paint, more or less . . .

  • a standard 5 gallon bucket is 15 inches high and 12 across. pi r^2 height is the volume of a cylinder. 3.14 6 6 *15 = 1695.6 cu inches. / 1728 cu in in a cu foot = about .98 cu ft

  • a cu ft has 12 x 12 x 12 =1728 cu " in a cu foot

    a gal has 231 cu " in it, so 5 x 231 = 1155 cu in = 5 gals

    so 1728 cu " in a cu ft divided into 5 gals or 1155 cu in =.670 cu ft

  • .98
