## How many cubic feet is a school bus?

I figure a standard school bus is about 8ft wide by 6ft high by 20 feet long – this is just a guess based on the thousands of hours I have been trapped behind school buses while traffic in all directions is stopped. That means 960 cubic feet and since there are 1728 cubic inches in a cubit foot, that means about 1.6 million cubic inches.

## How many golf balls are in a school bus?

Now, if we divide the total volume of the school bus by the volume of an individual golf ball, we get 3100000/2.5 = 1.24 million golf balls The number we get is 1.24 million golf balls.

## How many golf balls are in a cubic foot?

That means 960 cubic feet and since there are 1728 cubic inches in a cubit foot, that means about 1.6 million cubic inches. I calculate the volume of a golf ball to be about 2.5 cubic inches (4/3 * pi * .85) as .85 inches is the radius of a golf ball. Divide that 2.5 cubic inches into 1.6 million and you come up with 660,000 golf balls.

## What is the volume of a golf ball?

The formula for determining the volume of a sphere is 4/3 * pi (3.1416) * 0.84^3. Calculating that, we can estimate the volume of an individual golf ball to be about 2.5 cubic inches. Now, coming to the bus, here’s where things may seem trickier. But fret not; simply use the size of a standard school bus for your calculations as a reference.
