I would like to know how many cubic feet are in a 5 gallon bucket. Then how many 5 gallon buckets are in a cubic yard (as in mulch or stone) Thanks in advance for your help

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
