- 2 x 4 x 10 / 12 = 6.667 Board Feet.
- A 2 x 10 -16′ has 26.67 board feet:
- 2 x 10 x 16 / 12 = 26.667 Board Feet.
- PCS x T x W x L / 12 = Board Feet.
- 84 x 2 x 8 x 12 / 12 = 1,344 Board Feet.
- 1.25 x 6 x 14 / 12 = 8.75 Board Foot.
How many board feet are in a 2x4x10?
A 2x4x10 board has 6.66667 total board feet in it: the board foot factor (BFF) of a 2×4 is 0.666667. Multiply 0.66667 by the length of 10 which gives total board feet of 6.66667. A 2x4x14 board has 9.33333 total board feet in it: The board foot factor (BFF) of a 2×4 is 0.66667.

How do you figure board feet in insulation?
Subtract the square feet of doors and windows in that wall. Subtract 6% for the studs (which you won’t be spraying) Take that total and multiply by 3.5″ for a 2″x 4″ wall, or 5.5″ if it is a 2″x 6″ wall. The result is the number of board feet you need to install to complete your project.
