The Volume of a Turkey calculator approximates the volume of a Photo by Tim Sackton
turkey based on its weight and the mean density of poultry.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Volume of a Turkey(V): The calculator returns the approximate volume of the turkey in fluid ounces. However, this can be automatically converted to other volume units (e.g. gallons or liters) via the pull-down menu.
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 meanof 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.
