## 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

To convert cubic meters 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 cubic meters to liters, multiply by 1000.
• Example: 2 m3 x 1000 = 2000 L
• To convert cubic meters to cubic feet, multiply by 35.3.
• Example: 2 m3 x 35.3 = 70.6 ft3
• To convert cubic meters to cubic yards, multiply by 1.3.
• Example: 2 m3 x 1.3 = 2.6 yd3
• To convert cubic meters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 264.
• Example: 2 m3 x 264 = 528 gal
• To convert cubic meters to bushels (US), multiply by 28.4.
• Example: 2 m3 x 28.4 = 56.8 bu
• To convert cubic meters to barrels (oil), multiply by 6.29.
• Example: 2 m3 x 6.29 = 12.58 bbl

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

• To convert liters to cubic meters, divide by 1000.
• Example: 2000 L / 1000 = 2 m3
• To convert cubic feet to cubic meters, divide by 35.3.
• Example: 70.6 ft3 / 35.3 = 2 m3
• To convert cubic yards to cubic meters, divide by 1.3.
• Example: 2.6 yd3 / 1.3 = 2 m3
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to cubic meters, divide by 264.
• Example: 528 gal / 264 = 2 m3
• To convert bushels (US) to cubic meters, divide by 28.4.
• Example: 56.8 bu / 28.4 = 2 m3
• To convert barrels (oil) to cubic meters, divide by 6.29.
• Example: 12.58 bbl / 6.29 = 2 m3

## Where Cubic Meters are Used

Cubic meters are used for measuring various materials and substances in different countries and applications.

Some examples are:

• In most countries that use the metric system, cubic meters are used for measuring water supply, gas consumption, wood volume, and other liquids and solids.
• In some countries that use the imperial system, such as the United Kingdom and Canada, cubic meters are used for measuring natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and electricity.
• In the European Union, cubic meters are used for measuring carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption.
• In the aviation industry, cubic meters are used for measuring the cargo capacity of aircraft and air freight.
• In the shipping industry, cubic meters are used for measuring the volume of containers and cargo ships.

## Example Conversions of Cubic Meters to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of cubic meters to other units of volume:

• 1 m3 = 1000 L
• 1 m3 = 35.3 ft3
• 1 m3 = 1.3 yd3
• 1 m3 = 264 gal
• 1 m3 = 28.4 bu
• 1 m3 = 6.29 bbl
• 1 m3 = 0.001 km3
Cubic meters also can be marked as m3.

## Quarts: A Unit of Volume

Quarts are a unit of volume that are used to measure liquids, such as water, milk, oil, wine, etc. They are also used to measure some dry goods, such as grains, fruits, nuts, etc. They are different from cups, which are a smaller unit of volume. Quarts are also different from gallons, which are a larger unit of volume. Quarts 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 Quarts

A quart is defined as a quarter of a gallon in the US customary system and the British imperial system of measurement. However, the size of a quart varies depending on the type of gallon used:

• A liquid quart is equal to 0.946 liters or 0.208 gallons in the US customary system. It is equivalent to 32 fluid ounces or 4 cups in the US customary system.
• A dry quart is equal to 1.101 liters or 0.227 gallons in the US customary system. It is equivalent to 37.24 cubic inches or 67.2 tablespoons in the US customary system.
• An imperial quart is equal to 1.136 liters or 0.25 gallons in the British imperial system. It is equivalent to 40 fluid ounces or 4 imperial cups in the British imperial system.

## History of Quarts

The origin of the term quart as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Latin word quartus, which means fourth. Quarts have been used since ancient times to store and transport various liquids and dry goods. The size and shape of quarts varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of quarts as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these quarts was based on the gallon, which was originally defined as the volume of eight pounds of wheat or wine. The quart was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of quarts as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The quart was gradually replaced by units such as liters, kilograms, etc. However, some countries and regions still use quarts for certain types of liquids and dry goods, especially in cooking and baking.
