## How to convert

1 cubic foot (cu ft) = 28316846.6 cubic millimeter (cu mm). Cubic Foot (cu ft) is a unit of Volume used in Standard system. Cubic Millimeter (cu mm) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

## Definition of the Cubic Foot

A cubic foot (symbol ft3 or cu ft) is an imperial and US customary (non-metric) unit of volume, used in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one foot (0.3048 meter) in length.

One cubic foot is equal to 1728 cubic inches, 0.037037 cubic yards, or 0.02831685 cubic meters.

## History of the Cubic Foot

The cubic foot is derived from the foot, which is an ancient unit of length that was based on the length of a human foot. The foot was originally divided into 12 inches, and later into 16 digits or 4 palms. The foot was used in many different systems of measurement, such as the Roman, Egyptian, Greek, and English systems. The foot was standardized by King Henry I of England in the 12th century as the length of his own foot. The current definition of the foot, adopted in 1959, is based on the international yard, which is defined as 0.9144 meter.

The cubic foot was first used as a unit of volume for measuring wood in England in the 15th century. It was also used for measuring other materials and substances, such as stone, sand, coal, water, and air. The cubic foot was adopted as a standard unit of measure in the imperial system in 1824, along with other units such as the gallon, the bushel, and the barrel. The cubic foot was also used in the US customary system, which is similar but not identical to the imperial system. The cubic foot is still widely used today for various purposes, such as construction, engineering, commerce, and everyday life.

## Definition of the Cubic Millimeter

A cubic millimeter (symbol mm3 or cu mm) is a unit of volume that corresponds to the volume of a cube with sides of 1 millimeter (0.001 meter) in length. It is also equivalent to 0.001 milliliter, which is a unit of volume in the metric system.

One cubic millimeter is equal to 0.000000001 cubic meters, 0.00006102374 cubic inches, or 0.000000264172 gallons.

## History of the Cubic Millimeter

The cubic millimeter is derived from the millimeter, which is a unit of length that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The millimeter was defined as one thousandth of a meter, which is the base unit of length in the metric system. The meter was originally defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian, but later redefined based on various physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium bar and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the meter, adopted in 1983, is based on the speed of light in vacuum.

The cubic millimeter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring very small amounts of liquids and gases, such as medicine, perfume, ink, and blood. The cubic millimeter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The cubic millimeter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.
