The Volume of a Box calculator computes BoxVolume-illustration.pngBox 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
