The liter is the unit used to measure volume in the metric system. It is the volume necessary to fill a cube 10 centimeters on a side, equal to roughly 33 oz.

Smaller volumes are commonly expressed in milliliters (mls), or 1/1,000th of a liter. One-fourth of a liter would be 250 ml, while one-tenth would be 100 ml.

Because a liter has the volume of 1,000 cubic centimeters, one milliliter is equal to one cubic centimeter.

It rather depends on what you are measuring. The litre is a liquid measure. For "dry" dimensions such as the capacity of a vehicle or a room, it makes more sense to use the cubic metre (or cubic centi- or milli- metre for small objects). However the cubic centimetre is used extensively in chemistry and for the volumes of engine cylinders.

Volume is measured in length cubed, so m³. A liter is 1 dm³, that is, a cube with each side being 1 dm (10 cm).

answ2. Litres would be used for fluid measure, and 1 litre equals a cube of 10cm each side.

Otherwise, use cubic centimetres, (cc or ml); or cubic metres.
