# Burt's Quarter Girth Method

A version based on the Hoppus method known as the Burt's Quarter Girth Method formula for calculating the true volume of a log.

### Burt's Quarter Girth Formula

##### Formula used:

V = G² ÷ 4 * L ÷ 113V = volume

G = girth measured mid length of the log

L = length of log in feet

#### Calculation

- the length of the log in feet
- the circumference of the log taken mid-length measured in inches

#### Result

- volume of log

### Burt's Average Diameter

##### Formula used:

V = ((Dt + Db) ÷ 2 )² * L ÷ 183V = volume of log

Dt = diameter top end log

Db = diameter large end of log

L = length of log

#### Calculation

- the length of the log in feet
- diameter large end of log
- diameter top end of log

#### Result

- volume of the log
