## How to Convert US Barrels Oil to Meters Cube

*Example: How many meters cube are equivalent to 2.7 US barrels oil?*

As;

1 US barrels oil = 0.15897 meters cube

2.7 US barrels oil = Y meters cube

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

Y equals 2.7 times 0.15897 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 2.7 * 0.15897 / 1 = 0.429219 meters cube

Answer is: 0.429219 meters cube are equivalent to 2.7 US barrels oil.
