# Is it true that volumes of solids can be expressed in liters or milliliters?

Liters and any denomination of liters are a unit of volume. The definition of matter includes that it has to take up space - volume. So you can indeed use liters and milliliters to measure the volume of a solid. However, the alternative is to use meters (cubed) and any denomination of meters to represent volume. You could say that something is 1.00 liters or you could say that the same thing is 1000 cm3.

### How many cubic centimeters are in 5 millimeters?

Impossible to answer because cubic centimeters are a VOLUME, and millimeters is a LENGTH. Perhaps you meant to use the word 'millilitres' which IS a volume. Milliliters and Cubic Centimetres are ALWAYS equal to each other. The volume of LIQUIDS are usually expressed in milliliters ( ml) and the volume of SOLIDS are usually expressed in cubic centimeters (cc)

### What metric units are used to measure solid volume?

Volume can be expressed in milliliters, liters, cubic centimeters (ml also), cubic meters, cubic kilometers, whether the volume is full of liquid, solid, gas, or empty. cm3, cubic centimetres (ml or cc more commonly) are used most often, certainly in chemistry but it is dependent on how large the volume is of course. In solids, it is more common to use weight, which is converted from volume, using density.

### What is the volume of a liquid measured in?

In the metric system, volumes of all kinds (solids, liquid, gases, plasma, etc.) are measured in liters. ------------------------------------------------------------ The litre (symbol L or l, the first is preferred) is not a true SI-unit; it is only an "accepted" unit of volume. 1 cubic metre (the SI unit) has 1 000 litres.
