Cubic meters and cubic centimeters are both measures of volume.

Volume in meters is abbreviated as m³ (meters cubed) while volume in centimeters is abbreviated as cm³ (centimeters cubed).

### Formula to Convert Cubic Meters to Cubic Centimeters.

First you need to know the relationship between meters and centimeters which is;

1meter = 100 centimeters

Cubed units means that you multiplied the unit by itself and then by itself again that is;

Cubic Unit = Unit x Unit x Unit

Therefore, to get the conversion rate of m^{3} to centimeters we multiply the conversion rate of meters into centimeters which is 100 by itself and then by itself again. That is;

1 Cubic Meter = 100cm x 100cm x 100cm

**1 Cubic Meter = 1,000,000 Cubic Centimeters** which can also be written as

**1m³ = 1,000,000cm³ **

In conclusion we can say that, to convert m^{3} to cm^{3}, we multiply the cubic meters by 1,000,000.

**Example 1:**

Convert 20m³ to centimeters cubic.

Since; 1m³ = 1,000,000cm³

= 20m³ x 1,000,0000cm³

= 20,000,000cm³

**Example 2:**

Suppose a 6000m^{3} tank is full of water, calculate the volume of the tank in centimeters cubed.

1m³ is equivalent to 1,000,000cm³ therefore,

**= 6,000 x 1,000,000**

**= 6,000,000,000 cm ^{3}**
