How to Convert Cubic Meters to Liters

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

To convert a cubic meter measurement to a liter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One cubic meter is equal to 1,000 liters, so use this simple formula to convert:

liters = cubic meters × 1,000

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.
5 m³ = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 l

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

Cubic Meters

The cubic meter is a unit that 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 , 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.
