How to Convert Liters to Cubic Centimeters

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

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

cubic centimeters = liters × 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 liters to cubic centimeters using the formula above.
cubic centimeters = (5 L × 1,000) = 5,000 cm³

How Many Cubic Centimeters Are in a Liter?

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 . For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 L, 1 l, or 1 ℓ.

What Is a Cubic Centimeter?

The cubic centimeter is a unit that is equal to the volume of a cube with one centimeter sides. One cubic centimeter is equal to about 0.061 cubic inches.[2]

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 hundredths, or 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.
