### General Information

When cooking a turkey by deep frying, it can be useful to know the approximate volume in fluid units that a given turkey displaces, taking into account the cavity in the turkey body. This formula uses the weight of a prepared turkey and the mean density of poultry (`1050 "kg/"m^3`) to compute the volume in meters cubed. That number is then converted to fluid ounces for comparison with the volume of a deep fryer.

A common holiday tradition is to cook a turkey for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. One of the recent trends is deep frying a turkey. This formula helps you know how many fluid ounces of cooking oil is needed for your deep fryer pot by measuring the interior dimensions of the fryer.
