Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Given that 1 barrel is equivalent to 1.24 cubic feet, we convert the cubic feet to cubic inches.

Now,

1 ft = 12 inches

therefore 1ft^3 = (12)^3 cubic inches = 1728 cubic inches.

1 barrel = 1.24ft^3 = (1.24*1728) cubic inches = 2142.72 cubic inches


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
