## Definition of the Cubic Meter

A cubic meter (symbol m3 or meter cube) is a unit of volume that is used in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of 1 meter (3 feet, 36 inches, or 0.9144 meters) in length.

One cubic meter is equal to 1000 liters, 35.3 cubic feet, or 1.3 cubic yards.

## History of the Cubic Meter

The cubic meter is derived from the meter, which is the base unit of length in the SI system. The meter was originally defined in 1793 as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian through Paris. The meter was later redefined several times based on different 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 meter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring water supply in France in the late 18th century. It was also used for measuring gas, wood, and other substances. The cubic meter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in the SI system in 1960. It is still widely used today for various purposes, such as science, engineering, commerce, and everyday life.

## How to Convert Cubic Meters

## Definition of the Cubic Centimeter

A cubic centimeter (symbol cm3 or cc) is a commonly used unit of volume that corresponds to the volume of a cube with sides of 1 centimeter (0.01 meter) in length. It is also equivalent to 1 milliliter, which is a unit of volume in the metric system.

One cubic centimeter is equal to 0.000001 cubic meters, 0.06102374 cubic inches, or 0.000264172 gallons.

## History of the Cubic Centimeter

The cubic centimeter is derived from the centimeter, which is a unit of length that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The centimeter was defined as one hundredth 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 centimeter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, air, and oxygen. The cubic centimeter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The cubic centimeter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.
