Cubic feet? Not really sure what you're asking.

Either one of the calcs you show will result in cubic feet.

This is not meant to be a sarcastic answer...just not sure what is asked. use a tape measure to measure the area to be insulated (L and W). Then determine how thick (H) the insulation is to be. Is this for walls or ceiling?

yes that link will work, you can also easily dpo the math on you phone right in the store using the chart on the back of the bag. It's pretty easily based on the sq feet of your house.

Depends on the installed density (weight per cubic foot), you need higher than 0.50 per cubic ft. or it will have convective loops; http://www.diychatroom.com/f98/how-b...ulation-90438/
