Is there a conversion formula for converting cubic foot to square foot?

Volume = Length * Width * Height Area = Length * Width therefore Area = Volume / Height

You didn't mention, so I will guess, its for something like topsoil, or sand, or gravel. Something convering your yard?

To convert cubic foot to square foot, just divide by the height (in feet).

The height is usually given in inches, so convert the inches to feet before dividing.

Thanks so much for your reply. Actually the application is the measurement of an insulation layer used in construction and I am trying to convert a density of 0.6g/cm3 (37pcf) to a density per sq. ft. -- is that 'doable'?

Yes, as long as you know the thickness of the insulation.

First multiply 6 g/cm³ by the thickness in centimeters, then divide by the cm² to ft² conversion factor.
