The official metric unit for liquid volume is the cubic meter. However, the liter and milliliter are also commonly used. [ 1.0 cubic meter = 1000 L ]. A liter corresponds to 1.057 quarts.

The cubic meter is the metric unit of volume.

Cubic meter is the SI unit of volume. It makes no difference whether the volume is occupied by a solid, a liquid, a gas, or a mixture of them, or is empty.

Because of subtle differences in the way the density of water is defined [ρ = 1 g/cc at water's greatest density--or at 4°C--(there is a slight difference)], there is a non-unity conversion between liters & cu m:

1 m3 = 999.973 liter (at 20 degree Celsius)

A cm3, a CC, or cubic centimeter is 0.999973 ml or milliliter

## Related Questions Liters are the metric unit for liquid volume or more strictly dm3. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 (symbol m3, the SI unit) has 1 000 litres. The Si unit for liquid volume is liters. (Spelt Litres, where SI units come from)Another AnswerSI does not distinguish between liquid and sold volumes. Consequently, the SI unit for volume is the cubic metre. The litre is a metric unit, but it is NOT an SI unit.
