## How to Convert Cubic Meters to Liters

To convert a measurement in cubic meters to a measurement in liters, multiply the volume by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 liters/cubic meter.

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

liters = cubic meters × 1,000

The volume in liters is equal to the volume in 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.

## What Is a Cubic Meter?

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.

## What Is a Liter?

A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters or 0.264172 US gallons.^{[1]} The liter is a special name defined for the cubic decimeter and is exactly equal to the volume of one cubic decimeter (1 decimeter is 1/10 of a meter, or 10 centimeters).

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.
