## How to Convert Liters to Cubic Meters

To convert a liter measurement to a cubic meter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One liter is equal to 0.001 cubic meters, so use this simple formula to convert:

The volume in cubic meters is equal to the liters multiplied by 0.001.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 liters to cubic meters using the formula above.

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

## Liters

The liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters. 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 *ℓ*. For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 l, 1 L, or 1 ℓ.

## 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 *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.
