## How to convert

1 cubic decimeter (cu dm) = 1 liter (l). Cubic Decimeter (cu dm) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Liter (l) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

## Cubic Decimeters: A Unit of Volume

Cubic decimeters are a unit of volume that are used to measure the space occupied by a three-dimensional object or substance. They are also used to measure the capacity of containers, such as boxes, bottles, tanks, etc. They are different from cubic meters, which are a larger unit of volume. They are also different from liters, which are a unit of volume for liquids and gases. They are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

## How to Convert Cubic Decimeters

To convert cubic decimeters to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

• To convert cubic decimeters to liters: multiply by 1
• To convert cubic decimeters to cubic meters: divide by 1000
• To convert cubic decimeters to cubic inches: multiply by 61.024
• To convert cubic decimeters to US fluid ounces: multiply by 33.814
• To convert cubic decimeters to BOE: divide by 583
Cubic decimeters also can be marked as dm3.

## Liters - A Unit of Volume

A liter (international spelling) or liter (American English spelling) (SI symbols L and l) is a unit of volume that is used in the metric system. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of 10 centimeters (0.1 meter) in length.

One liter is equal to 1000 cubic centimeters, 0.001 cubic meters, or 1 cubic decimeter.

## How to Convert Liters

To convert liters to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

• To convert liters to cubic centimeters, multiply by 1000.
• Example: 2 L x 1000 = 2000 cm3
• To convert liters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.001.
• Example: 2 L x 0.001 = 0.002 m3
• To convert liters to cubic decimeters, multiply by 1.
• Example: 2 L x 1 = 2 dm3
• To convert liters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.264.
• Example: 2 L x 0.264 = 0.528 gal
• To convert liters to bushels (US), multiply by 0.037.
• Example: 2 L x 0.037 = 0.074 bu
• To convert liters to barrels (oil), multiply by 0.0063.
• Example: 2 L x 0.0063 = 0.0126 bbl

To convert other units of volume to liters, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

• To convert cubic centimeters to liters, divide by 1000.
• Example: 2000 cm3 / 1000 = 2 L
• To convert cubic meters to liters, divide by 0.001.
• Example: 0.002 m3 / 0.001 = 2 L
• To convert cubic decimeters to liters, divide by 1.
• Example: 2 dm3 / 1 = 2 L
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to liters, divide by 0.264.
• Example: 0.528 gal / 0.264 = 2 L
• To convert bushels (US) to liters, divide by 0.037.
• Example: 0.074 bu / 0.037 = 2 L
• To convert barrels (oil) to liters, divide by 0.0063.
• Example: 0.0126 bbl / 0.0063 = 2 L
