How to Convert Cubic Centimeters to Liters

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a cubic centimeter measurement to a liter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One cubic centimeter is equal to 0.001 liters, so use this simple formula to convert:

liters = cubic centimeters × 0.001

The volume in liters is equal to the cubic centimeters multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 cubic centimeters to liters using the formula above.
5 cm³ = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 l

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

Cubic Centimeters

The cubic centimeter is a unit that is equal to the volume of a cube with one centimeter sides.

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 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.


The liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters. The liter is a special name defined for the cubic decimeter, and is exactly equal to the volume of one cubic decimeter.

The liter is an SI accepted unit for volume for use with the metric system. A liter is sometimes also referred to as a litre. Liters can be abbreviated as l, and are also sometimes abbreviated as L or . For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 l, 1 L, or 1 ℓ.
