Measurement refers to a unit or system measuring something. It can be mass, volume or length. Many times we need to convert one unit into another (for example cubic meter to cubic feet). Conversion of units refers to the changing of one unit into another and that too for the same quantity. Multiplicative factors are used for the conversion of the units. In Mathematics, various units are used for conversion at various times. Well, there are 2 systems that are used in the measurement of quantities.

## Metric System

Metric system is a decimal measuring system which uses gram, litre metre as units of measurement. This system uses the following 3 units for measurement as standard units:

• Meters (For Length)
• Kilograms (For Mass)
• Cubic Meters (For Volume)

For measuring the quantities that have been derived from fundamental dimensions, those units should be used which have been derived from the fundamental units. Undoubtedly, the metric system stands as one of the most used measuring systems around the world. It is pretty easy to implement while measurement and is used widely in different fields.

## Imperial System

This system of measurement uses imperial units for measurement. Following units are used in this system for measurement:

• Yards, feet and inches (For Length)
• Stones, Ounces and Pounds (For Mass)
• Gallons (For Volume)

This system finds its use in the United Kingdom and some Commonwealth nations. However, the metric system has overtaken this system around the world as that is pretty simple as compared to this system. Furthermore, this system is also called as British Imperial System and was even used as the official system in the late 20s. Most of the nations switched to metric system thereafter.

Here is a list of some conversions that can come handy anytime you are willing to calculate:

## 1) Cubic meter to cubic feet

Cubic meter and cubic feet both are the units of volume. There are 35.315 cubic feet in 1 cubic metre. In order to convert cubic metre to cubic feet, we need to multiply the number of cubic meters we want to convert by 35.315.

## 2) Cubic meter to litre

There are 1000 litres in a single cubic metre. So, it’s pretty easy to convert cubic meter to litres as you just need to multiply the number of cubic meters by 1000 and you will get your answer in litres.

## 3) Cubic feet to litre

A single cubic foot consists of 28.317 litres. So, if you are willing to convert a certain number of cubic feet to litres, multiply that number by 28.317 to get the answer.

## 4) Cubic centimeter to litre

In order to convert from cubic centimeters to litres, the number will be multiplied by 0.001 as one cubic centimetre is equal to 0.001 litre.

## 5) Cubic meter to kg

One cubic meter equals 1000 kilograms so for doing the conversion in that order you need to multiply the number of cubic meters by 1000 to get the answer in kilograms.
