## How to Convert Cubic Meters to Liters

To convert a cubic meter measurement to a liter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio.

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

The volume in liters is equal to the cubic meters multiplied by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 cubic meters to liters using the formula above.

### How Many Liters Are in a Cubic Meter?

There are **1,000** liters in a cubic meter, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 m³ = 1,000 l

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

## Cubic Meters

One cubic meter is equal to the volume of a cube with each edge measuring one meter.

The cubic meter, or cubic metre, is the SI derived unit for volume in the metric system. Cubic meters can be abbreviated as *m³*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *cu m*, *CBM*, *cbm*, or *MTQ*. For example, 1 cubic meter can be written as 1 m³, 1 cu m, 1 CBM, 1 cbm, or 1 MTQ.

## Liters

A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters.^{[1]} 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 *ℓ*. For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 l, 1 L, or 1 ℓ.
