Metrically - speaking, it is not possible to have a cubic foot of anything. However, we Americans insist on keeping our foots instead of going metric, so we must have cubic foots in order to measure volume. A cube is three dimensional, thus has three sides. And, if each side contains a foot, there must be three feet, but only one cubic foot...got it
a unit of measurement for volume. It represents an area one foot long, by one foot wide, by one foot deep. Natural gas is measured in cubic feet, but the measurements are usually expressed in terms of bcf, tcf, mcf, or Quads.Liquefied natural gas (LNG): natural gas is liquefied when its temperature is reduced to -260 degrees F at atmospheric pressure.
A measurement of Gas volume. One cubic foot is equal to the amount of Gas required to fill one cubic foot under standard temperature and pressure. 1 Cubic Foot is approximately 1,025 Btus 100 Cubic Feet = 1 CCF
A wood volume measurement containing 1,728 cubic inches, such as a piece of wood measuring 1 foot on a side. A cubic foot of wood contains about 6 to 10 usable board feet of lumber rather than 12 board feet because some wood is lost as sawdust and shavings during processing.
