^{3}) to liters (L) is demonstrated in this worked example problem.

**Problem:**

How many liters are equal to 0.25 cubic meters?

**Solution:**

Conversion factors needed

1 cm

^{3}= 1 mL

100 cm = 1 m

1000 mL = 1 L

Convert cubic meters to cubic centimeters

100 cm = 1 m

(100 cm)

^{3}= (1 m)

^{3}

1,000,000 cm

^{3}= 1 m

^{3}

since 1 cm

^{3}= 1 mL

1 m

^{3}= 1,000,000 mL or 10

^{6}mL

Set up the conversion so the desired unit will be cancelled out. In this case, we want L to be the remaining unit.

volume in L = (volume in m

^{3}) x (10

^{6}mL/1 m

^{3}) x (1 L/1000 mL)

volume in L = (0.25 m

^{3}) x (10

^{6}mL/1 m

^{3}) x (1 L/1000 mL)

volume in L = (0.25 m

^{3}) x (10

^{3}L/1 m

^{3})

volume in L = 250 L

**Answer:**

There are 250 L in 0.25 cubic meters.
