**Definitions:**

**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.

**Meter Cube** (abbreviations: **m3, or m cube**): is the SI derived unit of volume. It is the volume of a cube with edges one metre in length.

## How to Convert Liters to Meters Cube

*Example: How many meters cube are equivalent to 78.2 liters?*

As;

1 liters = 0.001 meters cube

78.2 liters = Y meters cube

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

Y equals 78.2 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 78.2 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.0782 meters cube

Answer is: 0.0782 meters cube are equivalent to 78.2 liters.
