**Definitions:**

**Meter Cube** (abbreviations: **m3, or m cube**): is the SI derived unit of volume. It is the volume of a cube with edges one metre in length.

**Liter** (abbreviations: **ltr, or lit, or l, or litre**): is an SI accepted metric system unit of volume equal to 1 cubic decimetre (dm3), 1,000 cubic centimetres (cm3) or 1/1,000 cubic metre. A cubic decimetre (or litre) occupies a volume of 10x10x10 centimetres and is thus equal to one-thousandth of a cubic metre.

## How to Convert Meters Cube to Liters

*Example: How many liters are equivalent to 59.79 meters cube?*

As;

1 meters cube = 1000 liters

59.79 meters cube = Y liters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 59.79 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 59.79 * 1000 / 1 = 59790 liters

Answer is: 59790 liters are equivalent to 59.79 meters cube.
