Enter the bag length (in), the bag width (in), and the bag height (in) into the Flat Bag Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Flat Bag Volume. 

Flat Bag Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Flat Bag Volume. 

FBV = BL * BW * BH
  • Where FBV is the Flat Bag Volume (in^3)
  • BL is the bag length (in) 
  • BW is the bag width (in) 
  • BH is the bag height (in) 

To calculate a flat bag volume, simply multiply the length, width, and height together.

How to Calculate Flat Bag Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Flat Bag Volume.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the bag length (in).
    1. The bag length (in) is given as 10.
  2. Next, determine the bag width (in). 
    1. The bag width (in) is calculated as: 10.
  3. Next, determine the bag height (in). 
    1. The bag height (in) is found to be: 10.
  4. Finally, calculate the Flat Bag Volume using the formula above: 

FBV = BL * BW * BH

Inserting the values from above yields: 

FBV = 10 * 10 * 10 = 1000 (in^3)

Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

bag length (in) = 5

bag width (in) = 5

bag height (in) = 5

Entering these values and solving gives:

FBV = BL * BW * BH = 125 (in^3)
