## 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.

US Gill
/dʒɪl/
Symbol: gi
Unit System: US Customary

### What is the US Gill?

The US gill is a unit of volume in the US customary unit system and uses the symbol gi.

It represents 1/4 of a pint - so in this instance, it is 1/4 of US pint - therefore measures exactly 118.29411825 ml. It's also equal to 8 tablespoons, 24 teaspoons and 5/6 imperial gills.

The gill has been mentioned a number of times in popular literature; including in Treasure Island, Animal Farm and in Dan Simmon's 'The Terror' - and all references are pointing to the use of the gill in terms of alcohol measures or servings.
