How do I Calculate Cubic Feet?

Cubic feet are used to measure a 3 dimensional space. For instance, to calculate the cubic feet of a garbage can, you first get the square footage, which for a circular can it is pi * radius squared, and then multiply that by the height of the can. So the cubic footage is the square feet of an area, times the height or depth of the area.
