## 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.

## Definition of the Centiliter

A centiliter (international spelling) or centiliter (American English spelling) (SI symbols cL or cl) is a unit of volume that is used in the metric system. It is defined as one hundredth of a liter, or the volume of a cube with sides of 1 centimeter (0.01 meter) in length.

One centiliter is equal to 10 cubic centimeters, 0.00001 cubic meters, or 0.01 cubic decimeters.

## History of the Centiliter

The centiliter is derived from the liter, which is a unit of volume that was first used by the French chemist Antoine Lavoisier in 1795 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 platinum-iridium 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.

The centiliter was introduced as a subunit of the liter in the metric system in 1795, along with other decimal subunits such as the deciliter and the milliliter. The centiliter was used for measuring small volumes of liquids and gases, such as wine, beer, milk, oil, and air. The centiliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, flour, and salt. The centiliter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.
