## Unit Information

Cubic Yard
/ˈkjuːbɪk jɑːd/
Symbol: yd³
Unit System: Imperial

### What is the Cubic Yard?

The cubic yard is a unit of volume derived from the imperial system of units. It uses the symbol yd³.

It equals the volume of a cube with edges that each measure 1 yard. It is equivalent to 27 ft³, 46656 in³ or ≈ 0.764554 m³.

The yard (and derivatives like the cubic yard for example) are the same in both the imperial systems and US customary systems so require less conversion systems to calculate / convert to SI or metric.

Stere
/stɪə/
Symbol: st
Unit System: Non-SI Metric

### What is the Stere?

The stere is a unit of volume and is a non-SI unit but accepted for use as a metric unit with the symbol st.

1 stere is equal to 1 cubic metre (1 m³) which is equivalent to the volume contained in a cube with edges all at 1 m. The stere is used to measure large quantities of cut wood or firewood. It is used to distinguish between cut and uncut wood - its equivalent, the cubic meter is used to measure uncut wood.

The word 'stere' hails from the Greek 'στερεός' or 'stereos' which translates to 'solid'. It represents the wood used to produce the cut wood - and therefore often the dimensions of the cut wood is less than its uncut equivalent.
