**Definitions:**

**Centimeter Cube** (abbreviations: **cm3, or cm cube**): is the SI derived unit of volume. It is the volume of a cube with edges one centimeter in length.

**Liter** (abbreviations: **ltr, or lit, or l, or litre**): is an SI accepted metric system unit of volume equal to 1 cubic decimetre (dm3), 1,000 cubic centimetres (cm3) or 1/1,000 cubic metre. A cubic decimetre (or litre) occupies a volume of 10x10x10 centimetres and is thus equal to one-thousandth of a cubic metre.

## How to Convert Centimeters Cube to Liters

*Example: How many liters are equivalent to 51.46 centimeters cube?*

As;

1 centimeters cube = 0.001 liters

51.46 centimeters cube = Y liters

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

Y equals 51.46 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.46 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.05146 liters

Answer is: 0.05146 liters are equivalent to 51.46 centimeters cube.
