vCalc.Box - Volume

The **Volume of a Box** calculator computes *Box aka Parallelepiped *the volume of a box (a.k.a. rectangular parallelepiped) based on the length, height and depth (see diagram).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**l**) length of the box - (
**h**) height of the box - (
**d**) depth of the box

**Volume of a Box (V):** The Volume (**V**) is returned in cubic meters. However, this can be automatically converted into many other volume units (e.g. cubic feet, gallons, litres) via the pull-down menu.

#### The Math / Science

A box is three dimensional volume with perpendicular corners. A special case of the box is a cube where all dimensions are the same. A box shape is very common in construction and other manufacturing due to the ease in establishing consistency and in stacking and measuring.

The formula for the volume of a box (parallelepiped) is:

V = L•H•D

where:

- V is the volume of box
- L is the length
- H is the height
- D is the depth
