is there a certain amount of packing peanuts that equals a sqft? i got a whole box from my sub shipment, and i'm building my test box and need to know how big it is. i'm sure they are all the same size anyway. i'm too lazy to use those calculators on www.the12volt.com

you mean a cubic foot?
if so a 12" x 12" x 12" container = 1 cubic foot

give or take 104

c'mon dude, seriously?

You're not too lazy to use the calculator. You don't understand it. That's fine. Just ask for help. Did you realy expect someone to tell you like a number or something?

WINISD is a decent program to download and use for box specs.

ah1, ah2, ah3.................


But yeah man, you could do that. It wouldnt take too long, a cubic foot isnt all that big.

But my guess would be around 600.

Let me know how close I am :naughty:

no i understand the calculators, i've just heard of people using them to test their volume. plus this box has alot of angles and stuff, and i didn't want to do the conversion on triangles, and blah blah blah. just figured somebody had done it before and had a rounded number. and for those who care....i know how many it takes now :up2somet:

i filled a container that held 100 and it filled it about 1/4 way and rounded to about 2000. i figured someone knew some kinda formula or something for the diameter or whatever....i dunno i was bored :D

Take the peanut...
Measure the W x L x H ( in inches )

divide by 1728

That gives you the volume of a peanut

NOW divide 1 by that number...

That gives you the amount of peanuts per cubic Foot















This is all assuming that you placed the peanuts in uniformly.

If they were not placed in uniformly then it +/-25 peanuts

Disclaimer-What i just said may or may not be true... it is the sold responsibility of the person measuring to determine the true number of peanuts per cubic foot. I am not responsible for any wrong answers

Take a cardboard box, measure the width, length and heigh, calculate the volume. Now fill it to the top with peanuts. Now you have the volume that the peanuts in there, now fill the sub box with the peanuts from the box, refill and repeat, and etc. counting how many times you filled it. Once it gets closed to being filled you can use a smaller box to make the measurements to be more exact.

or you could just weigh the box and a single peanut and use the difference...
