# The Solid Volume of a Log

Calculate the solid wood volume of a log using two end measurements and the length of the log.

### Formula used:

V= ((d + D) ÷ 2)² * 0.005454 * L V= volume in cubic feet d = small end diameter in inches D large end diameter in inches L = length of log in feet 0.005454 a constant a.k.a. the foresters constant

*diameters have to be measured inside bark*

### Solid Volume

#### Calculation

- enter the length of the log measured in feet
- large end diameter of log measured in inches
- top end diameter of log measured in inches
- number of logs of this size you wish to calculate for

#### Results

- cubic foot volume of the log(s)
