Volume of a Box
Volume of a Box
This is an important calculation for all electricians to understand. The
volume of a box is the result of multiplying the length of each side times the
depth of the box. So with a box that is 6 inches by 8 inches by 4 inches deep,
the calculation would be 6 inches times 8 inches times 4 inches. Result 192
cubic inches.
Cubic inches are calculated for boxes expected to enclose conductors size #6
AWG and smaller.
