Cubic Meters to Liters Conversion
Enter the volume in cubic meters below to get the value converted to liters.
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.
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.
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.
