How to convert1 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 VolumeCubic decimeters are a unit of volume that are used to measure the space occupied by a threedimensional 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. Definition of Cubic DecimetersA cubic decimeter is equal to the volume of a cube with sides of 1 decimeter (0.1 meter) in length. It is equivalent to 1000 cubic centimeters or 1 liter in the metric system. History of Cubic DecimetersThe origin of the term cubic decimeter as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Latin word cubus, which means cube, and the Greek word deka, which means ten. Cubic decimeters have been used since ancient times to measure the volume of various objects and substances. The size and shape of cubic decimeters varied depending on the type and quantity of the objects and substances, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries. The use of cubic decimeters as a unit of measure dates back to the ancient times, when the decimal system of measurement was established. The standard size of these cubic decimeters was based on the meter, which was originally defined as one tenmillionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole. The cubic decimeter was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of volume. The use of cubic decimeters as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The cubic decimeter was gradually replaced by units such as liters, milliliters, etc. However, some countries and regions still use cubic decimeters for certain types of volume, especially in science and engineering. How to Convert Cubic DecimetersTo convert cubic decimeters to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:
Where Cubic Decimeters are UsedCubic decimeters are mainly used in some countries and regions that use the metric system or the SI system of measurement. They are often used for measuring the volume of solids, liquids and gases, such as water, oil, air, etc., and the capacity of containers, such as boxes, bottles, tanks, etc. In some countries that use other systems of measurement, such as the imperial system or the US customary system, cubic decimeters are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as gallons, quarts, pints, etc. Example Conversions of Cubic Decimeters to Other UnitsHere are some examples of converting cubic decimeters to other units of volume:
Liters  A Unit of VolumeDefinition of the LiterA 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. History of the LiterThe liter is derived from the litron, which was an old French unit of volume that was based on the Greek unit of weight called the litra. The litron was equal to about 0.831 liters. The word liter was first used in 1795 by the French chemist Antoine Lavoisier as a unit of volume for liquids and gases. The liter was originally defined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at 4 °C and standard atmospheric pressure. The liter was later redefined several times based on different physical standards, such as a platinumiridium cylinder and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the liter, adopted in 1964, is based on the cubic meter, which is the SI unit of volume. The liter is not an SI unit, but it is accepted by the CGPM (the standards body that defines the SI) for use with the SI. How to Convert LitersTo 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 other units of volume to liters, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:
