# Earthwork Cross-section Volume

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Civil Engineering

Earthwork cross-section volume is the volume between two cross-section areas.

## Earthwork Cross-Section Volume formula

 $$\large{ V = \frac{ l \; \left( A_1 \;+\; A_2 \right) }{ 2 } }$$

### Where:

 Units English Metric $$\large{ V }$$ = earthwork volume $$\large{ft^3}$$ $$\large{m^3}$$ $$\large{ A_1 }$$ = cross-section area $$\large{ft^2}$$ $$\large{m^2}$$ $$\large{ A_2 }$$ = cross-section area $$\large{ft^2}$$ $$\large{m^2}$$ $$\large{ l }$$ = length between 2 cross-section areas $$\large{ft}$$ $$\large{m}$$
