**Definitions:**

**Gram Per Cubic Centimeter** (abbreviations: **g/cm3, or gpcm3**): is an SI derived unit of density, defined by mass in grams divided by volume in cubic centimetres and equivalent to gram per milliliter.

**Kilogram Per Cubic Meter** (abbreviations: **kg/m3, or kgpm3**): is an SI derived unit of density, defined by mass in kilograms divided by volume in cubic metres.

## How to Convert Grams Per Cubic Centimeters to Kilograms Per Cubic Meters

*Example: How many kilograms per cubic meters are equivalent to 2.59 grams per cubic centimeters?*

As;

1 grams per cubic centimeters = 1000 kilograms per cubic meters

2.59 grams per cubic centimeters = Y kilograms per cubic meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 2.59 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 2.59 * 1000 / 1 = 2590 kilograms per cubic meters

Answer is: 2590 kilograms per cubic meters are equivalent to 2.59 grams per cubic centimeters.
