How to Convert Liters to Cubic Centimeters

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

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 liters multiplied by 1,000.

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

How Many Cubic Centimeters Are in a Liter?

There are 1,000 cubic centimeters in a liter, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 l = 1,000 cm³

Liters and cubic centimeters are both units used to measure volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


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

Cubic Centimeters

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 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.
