## How the Calculator Works:

The calculator computes the following values:

**Volume (m³)**: The total volume calculated by multiplying the length, width, and height (converted to meters).**Net Volume (m³)**: The volume after accounting for packaging loss by multiplying the volume by (100% – Packaging Loss).**Usable Volume (m³)**: The volume after accounting for both packaging loss and waste by multiplying the net volume by (100% – Waste).

## Limitations:

The calculator does not account for irregular shapes or non-standard units. Please ensure all measurements are accurate and in the specified units (meters and millimeters). Only positive values are accepted for dimensions, and non-negative values for percentages.
