## How to convert

1 cubic millimeter (cu mm) = 0.000001 cubic decimeter (cu dm). Cubic Millimeter (cu mm) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Cubic Decimeter (cu dm) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

## 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.

## Cubic Decimeters: A Unit of Volume

Cubic decimeters are a unit of volume that are used to measure the space occupied by a three-dimensional 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 Decimeters

A 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 Decimeters

The 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 ten-millionth 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 Decimeters

To convert cubic decimeters to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

• To convert cubic decimeters to liters: multiply by 1
• To convert cubic decimeters to cubic meters: divide by 1000
• To convert cubic decimeters to cubic inches: multiply by 61.024
• To convert cubic decimeters to US fluid ounces: multiply by 33.814
• To convert cubic decimeters to BOE: divide by 583

## Where Cubic Decimeters are Used

Cubic 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 Units

Here are some examples of converting cubic decimeters to other units of volume:

• 1 cubic decimeter = 1 liter

• 2 cubic decimeters = 0.002 cubic meters
