    Does anyone know the conversion rate to go from liters to cubic feet?

    I didn't see your post Brian, but your off by just a little, it's actually 29.56085 liters to every cubic foot and the recpricle of 29.56085 cubic foot to every liter.

    No, Brian is right. 1.0ft^3 = 28.3 liters

    There are 12*2.54 cms/foot. 30.48^3 equals 28316.846592 cubic centimeters or 28.3 liters.

    Brian is right. 1 cubic foot = 28.3168 liters. Do a google search on "metric conversion"... there are a bunch of sites to help you.

    Brian's right. Isaac and Dave are also right, but I suggest they each engage a therapist to find out what's driving them to use 6 or more significant digits for their conversions. [​IMG]

    Dan, it's always been a habbit of mine to only round down the final answer (to the smallest significant digits among the factors used; 3 in this case) [​IMG]
