**Cubic yards to cubic meters (yd3 to m3)** volume units conversion factor is 0.764. To find out how many cubic meters in cubic yards, multiply the cubic yard value by the conversion factor or use the converter.

**1 Cubic Yard = 0.764 554 858 Cubic Meters**

**There are 0.764 cubic meters in a cubic yard**, because one yard equals to 0.9144 meters and the volume of a cube is calculated by multiplying the length of a side by itself twice, that makes 0.9144 * 0.9144 * 0.9144 = 0.764 cubic meters in a cubic yard.

For example, to find out how many cubic meters there are in a cubic yard and a half, as a formula to convert from cubic yards to cubic meters, multiply the cubic yard value by 0.764, that makes 1.5 yd3 * 0.764 = 1.146 cubic meters in 1.5 cubic yards.
