In this article we learn how to convert liters to cubic centimeters but before that, let us define a liter. A 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*.

Cubic centimeter is an SI derived unit of volume based on the cubic meter is abbreviated as cm³ or sometimes it can be abbreviated as cu cm, cc, or ccm.

**Formula to Convert Liters to Cubic Centimeters .**

The relationship between liters and cubic centimeters states that:

1 liter is equivalent to 1000 cm³ .

It can also be written as,

1liter = 1000 cm³

In conclusion, we can say that to convert liters to cm³ , we multiply the liters by 1000 cm³.

**Example 1:**

Convert 2 liters to cm³.

**= 2 x 1000**

**= 2,000 cm³ **

**Example 2:**

Mike poured 5 liters of milk into a mixing. How many cubic centimeters of milk did he pour.

**Since 1L = 1000cm ^{3}**

**therefore,**

**= 5 x 1000**

**= 5,000 cm ^{3}**

**Example 3.**

There are 1,500 liters of water in rectangular shaped aquarium. Find the capacity of the aquarium in cubic centimeters.

**We know that** **1 liter is equivalent to 1000cm ^{3}** therefore,

**= 1,500 x 1000**

**Hence, the volume of the aquarium is 1,500,000** **cm ^{3}**
