### How many cubic millimeters are in a cubic centimeter?

There are 10 millimeters in one centimeter so by taking the
formula for a cubic which is Length X Width X Depth you see the
volume is equal to 10 X 10 X 10 or 1,000. Therefore, 1,000 cubic
millimeters are equal to one cubic centimeter. By the way, a cubic
centimeter is also the same volume as a milliliter. One being dry
volume and the other a liquid volume (generally).

### How many centimeters are in a cubic centimeter?

Yours is either a trick question or a poorly worded one. There
are NO centimeters in a cubic centimeter, because the units --
although they sound similar -- are incompatible. The centimeter is
a unit of length, whereas the cubic centimeter is a unit of volume.
Think of it this way: Would you ask how many oranges there are in a
barrel of apples? Having said that, a cubic centimeter is a volume
equivalent to the volume of a cube that measures one centimeter on
each edge.
