Conversion formula

The conversion factor from cubic feet to cubic meters is 0.0283168467117, which means that 1 cubic foot is equal to 0.0283168467117 cubic meters:

1 ft3 = 0.0283168467117 m3

To convert 0.5 cubic feet into cubic meters we have to multiply 0.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from cubic feet to cubic meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft3 → 0.0283168467117 m3

0.5 ft3 → V(m3)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume V in cubic meters:

V(m3) = 0.5 ft3 × 0.0283168467117 m3

V(m3) = 0.01415842335585 m3

The final result is:

0.5 ft3 → 0.01415842335585 m3

We conclude that 0.5 cubic feet is equivalent to 0.01415842335585 cubic meters:

0.5 cubic feet = 0.01415842335585 cubic meters
