# How many boards in the cube

Good day! We offer to Your attention an article which will help You in determining how many cubic meters of wood for building, for example, bathhouse, you need to order. In this article we will present not just the final result for boards of a certain size, but will tell you what percentage of your overpayment with a single cube of this Board show an example of self-calculate the number of boards in the cube.

## What is a cube and the volume ↑

Let’s start with the fact that the boards are measured in cubic meters (abbr. cube). Cubic meter is the product of the three values: the first one is length, second width, third is the height. In the case of such figures as «cube», value «the volume» is equal to the length of the ribs in degrees «Three». Another definition of a cubic meter:

«Kuby?cal the meter (m³, cubone?Tr) is a unit of volume; equal to the volume of a cube with edges of length 1 meter» How to find the volume of the cube shown in the video below (video in English):

Back to your future boards, namely their size. The size of the Board is indicated as follows: 25х150х6000. The first number is the height (thickness), the second number is the width, third number is the length. Board length is usually either 4 meters or 6 meters.

It is important! In fact, the length of the Board will be more than its nominal size. For example, a Board 4 meters long, in fact, has a 4.1, and then 4.2 m, but the Board is 6 meters long, will consist of up to 6.25. With regard to the first two values, width and thickness (height), they must exactly match the given parameter.

## Example calculation for a Board 25х150х6000 ↑

Consider vystavlennogo Board size 25х150х6000. The dimensions here are in mm, but to determine volume, You need another unit of measure – meter. Translate mm to meters and get the Board 0,025х0,15×6,0. Apply the formula for the volume V=L*h*b, where L – length, h – height, b – the width. L=6,0; h=0,025; b=0,15. Thus, 6,0*0,025*0,15 = 0,0225 cubic meters. What does it mean? And that means one thing: if You know the price for 1 cubic meter of this Board, freely determine the price of a Board. For example, if the price of a cubic meter is 100, one Board You will have to pay 100*0,0225=2.25 rubles.

Attention! Often the sellers boards, we can say, «Navarro» on your clients, rounding out the value of the boards. For example, instead of 0.025 cubic meters, and indicates the size of 0,023 in. Of course, it was an inconsequential deviation, if you purchase less than 1 cubic metres of Board worth \$ 100, but when a cubic meter is, for example, 300 rubles, and You need 10 cubic meters, then the overpayment will be significant. That is why you should learn how to determine the cubic capacity of the Board. So, to determine the volume of one of the boards we have. But how to determine the number of not edging boards is included into 1 cubic meter in size 25х150х6000. And to make it even simpler, using the formula:

1 cubic meter / (L*h*b) = N pieces.

Substitute the data and obtain the number of boards 25х150х6000 in 1 cubic meter:

1 / (6,0*0,025*0,15) = 1 / 0,0225 = 44,4 PCs.

It is important! At the order of one cubic meter of 25х150х6000 in fact, You take 44 the Board, and a 0.4 just overpaid. Thus, 1% of the cost of a cubic meter is Your overpayment.

So, we were able to calculate the number of boards in a cube, and now know, for example, how many we need to order cubic meters of wood to lay this flooring: ## The calculation of the amount of boards of different sizes ↑

Below together with You, we define the volume of one of the boards and number of boards of different sizes.

25х150х4000 (length – 4000, height – 25, width -150)

We first define the volume of one such Board. Apply the formula and get 4*0,025*0,15=to 0.015 cubic meters.

Now determine the number of boards 25х150х4000 per cubic meter: 1 / 0,015 = 66,7 PCs As a result, 1 cubic meter of boards 25х150х4000 contains 66 pieces.

40х150х4000 (length – 4000, height – 40, width – 150)

Determine the volume of one such Board: 4*0,04*0,15=0,024 cubic meters.

And the number of boards will count like this: 1 / 0,024 = 41,6 PCs. in fact, – 41 Board.

20х100х6000 (length – 6000, height – 20, width – 100)

Let’s start with the definition of one of such boards, the size 20х100х6000. 6*0,02*0,1=0,012.

The number of boards in 1 cubic metre: 1 / 0,012 = 83.3 pieces. Get 83 Board.

25х100х6000 (length – 6000, height – 25, width – 100)

Calculated volume of a single Board: 6*0,025*0,1=to 0.015 cubic meters.

If you were careful, the Board size 25х150х4000 has exactly the same amount, and on this basis can immediately calculate the number of boards in 1 cubic meter: 66 pieces. 40х100х6000 (length – 6000, height – 40, width – 100)

A calculated volume of a single Board 40х100х6000. Substitute the parameters into the formula and we have: 6*0,04*0,1 = 0,024 cubic meters.

The number of boards will be equal to 1 / 0,024 = 41,6. Thus, paying for 1 cubic meter 40х100х6000 You will receive 41 Board.

50х100х6000 (length – 6000, height – 50, width – 100)

We first define the volume of one such Board. Apply the formula and get 6*0,05*0,1=0,03 cubic metres.

Now determine the number of boards 50х100х6000 per cubic meter: 1 / 0,03 = 33,3. As a result, 1 cubic meter of boards 50х100х6000 contains 33 pieces.

25х150х6000 (length – 6000, height – 25, width – 150)

Determine the volume of one such Board: 6*0,025*0,15=0,0225 cubic meters.

And the number of boards will count like this: 1 / 0,0225 = 44,4 PCs. in fact, – 44 Board.

30х150х6000 (length – 6000, height – 30, width – 150)

Let’s start with the definition of one of such boards, the size 30х150х6000. 6*0,03*0,15=0,027.

The number of boards in 1 cubic metre: 1 / 0,027 = of 37.04 pieces. Get 37 boards. Perhaps it is per cubic meter of this Board You have to pay the lowest percentage.

40х150х6000 (length – 6000, height – 40, width – 150)

Calculated volume of a single Board: 6*0,04*0,15=0,036 cubic meters.

So what is the number of boards 40х150х6000 in 1 cubic meter? It is equal to 1 / 0,036 = 27,8 cubic meters. Attention! As you can see, rounding the number of such boards in the smaller side, You overpay a decent amount of money, almost 3%!

50х150х6000 (length – 6000, height – 50, width – 150)

A calculated volume of a single Board 50х150х6000. Substitute the parameters into the formula and we have: 6*0,05*0,15 = 0,045 cubic meters.

The number of boards will be equal to 1 / 0,045 = 22,2. Thus, paying for 1 cubic meter 50х150х6000 You will get 22 boards.

25х200х6000 (length – 6000, height – 25, width – 200)

The volume of one Board 25х200х6000 equal to 0,03 cubic metres. The number of boards 25х200х6000 1 cubic meter is equal to 33.3 pieces.

40х200х6000 (length – 6000, height – 40, width – 200)

The volume of such Board equals the 6*0,04*0,2=0,048 cubic meters. And the number of boards 40х200х6000 in one cube is 20.8 units.

It is IMPORTANT, when rounding in the smaller party, the overpayment will be significant!

50х200х6000 (length – 6000, height – 50, width – 200)

The last dimension we consider in this article. Calculate the volume of one such Board: 6*0,05*0,2 = 0,06 cubic meters. The number of such boards in 1 cubic meter is equal to 1 / 0,06 = 16,7, meaning a large overpayment when you round to the side 16 pieces!
