    Hi Superman89,

    Welcome to physicsforums. :smile:

    Do you know how to find the volume of a box, given its width, length, and height?

    After I posted this thread I read my problem a little more and decided that i needed to use the "V=lwh" formula. And when I checked to see if I had any replies, your post prove me right. Thank you VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
