How to Convert Cubic Centimeters to Cubic Meters

To convert a cubic centimeter measurement to a cubic meter measurement, divide the volume by the conversion ratio.

Since one cubic meter is equal to 1,000,000 cubic centimeters, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cubic meters = cubic centimeters ÷ 1,000,000

The volume in cubic meters is equal to the cubic centimeters divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 500 cubic centimeters to cubic meters using the formula above.
500 cm³ = (500 ÷ 1,000,000) = 0.0005 m³

Cubic centimeters and cubic meters are both units used to measure volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What is a Cubic Centimeter?

The cubic centimeter is a unit that is equal to the volume of a cube with one centimeter sides. One cubic centimeter is equal to about 0.061 cubic inches.[1]

The cubic centimeter, or cubic centimetre, is a multiple of the cubic meter, which is the SI derived unit for volume. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for hundredths, or 10-2. Cubic centimeters can be abbreviated as cm³, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cu cm, cc, or ccm. For example, 1 cubic centimeter can be written as 1 cm³, 1 cu cm, 1 cc, or 1 ccm.
