  • Finding cubic meters of a tree log

    I have a tree log that has a diameter of 426.55mm, the length of the log is 6109mm.
    I need to culculate the volume of the log in meters cubed.

    Can anybody please help?!

    The volume of a cylinder is (pi/4)*d*h
    Express the dimensions in meters, d = 0.42655 m, h = 6.109 m

    Then V = 0.785 * 0.42655 * 6.109 = 0.873 m

      Where did you get V=0.785?

      I have a log of diameter of 0.62m and a length of 2.25 m does that mean my cubic volume is 1.095?

        0.785 is (approx) pi/4. You still have to multuiply by diameter squared and length.

          Refer to Smalian's Formula for better instruction. Google it.
