To convert from TO Multiply by
cubic feet (ft.) cubic meters (m3) 0.0283
cubic yards (yd.) cubic meters (m3) 0.7646
Fahrenheit degrees (OF) Kelvin degrees (K) (see Note 1)
foot (ft) meter (m) 0.3048
gallon (gal) cubic meters (m3) 3.785 * 10-3

quart (qt.) cubic meters (m3) 9.464 * 10-4
Note I: To convert temperatures, use the following equation,

K = 273 + 0.5556 X (F - 32),
where F is the temperature in Fahrenheit degrees, and K is the temperature in Kelvin degrees.
