Cubic Meter

Cubic M

The cubic metre (In American English) or cubic meters (In British Commonwealth English) is the SI-derived unit of volume. The SI symbol of the cubic meter is (m3). It is defined as the volume of a cube with edges one metre in length. Another alternative name of cubic meter which permits a different usage with meter prefixes was the stere, which is often used for dry measure (for example, in relation with wood). Another alternative name of a cubic meter, no longer widely used, was Kilolitre.

Solved Example

1. What is the Value of 0.08 Cubic Feet in Cubic Meters?

Solution:

As we know,

1 Cubic Feet =  0.0283168466 cubic metres

Therefore, 

0.08 Cubic Feet = 0.08 × 0.0283168466 cubic metres

0.08 Cubic Feet = 0.0022653477 cubic meters

Hence, the value of 0.08 feet is approximately equal to 0.0022653477 cubic meters.


2. What is the Value of 5 Cubic Meters in Cubic Feet?

Solution: 

As we know,

1 Cubic Meter = 35.314667 cubic Feet

Therefore, 

5 Cubic Meters = 35.314667 × 5

5 Cubic Meters  = 176.573335 cubic feet

Therefore, the value of 5 cubic meters is approximately equal to 176.573335 cubic feet.
