### How to use Capacity and Volume Converter

Select the unit to convert from in the input units list. Select the unit to convert to in the output units list. Enter the value to convert from into the input box on the left. The conversion result will immediately appear in the output box.

The most common unit of volume is centimetres cubed (cm3). One centimetre cubed will hold one millilitre of fluid or another substance. 1000 cm3 will hold one thousand millilitres of fluid or another substance. Remember that 1000 mL = 1L, so 1L = 1000 cm3.

The volume of an object or substance is the amount of space it takes up. It is measured in cubic units (three-dimensional). Objects with the same volume may have different shapes eg cubes stacked 3 in a row then 2 and 1. Capacity is the amount a container can hold. Capacity is only used in.

The definition of capacity is the ability of someone or something to hold something. An example of capacity is how many people can fit in a room. An example of capacity is the amount of water a cup can hold.

Volume refers to the amount of space the object takes up. In other words, volume is a measure of the size of an object, just like height and width are ways to describe size. If the object is hollow (in other words, empty), volume is the amount of water it can hold.

variable noun. Your capacity for something is your ability to do it, or the amount of it that you are able to do. Our capacity for giving care, love, and attention is limited. Her mental capacity and temperament are as remarkable as his. Synonyms: ability, power, strength, facility More Synonyms of capacity.

Two methods are available for measuring the volume of a solid object. If the object has a regular geometric shape, such as that of a cube, sphere, or cylinder, then the object's dimensions can be determined by measurement with calipers or a simple ruler.Three common units of volume are: cubic centimeters. liters. gallons.

Units of capacity and volume conversion chart are discussed here in metric conversion of capacity and volume and also in customary units of capacity and volume.

Convert the units from the American metric system to the British metric system and the standard metric system (SI).

Here are some geometrical bodies, whose volume can be calculated. These are pyramid, truncated pyramid, cylinder, hollow cylinder (pipe), cone, truncated cone, sphere, the segment of a sphere and a barrel. You will have to be consequent with the units. So, if you want the volume in cubic meters, you will have to fill in all the data in meters. If you don't, the calculations will be wrong.

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by some closed boundary, such as the space occupies or shape substance (solid, liquid, gas, or plasma) or contains. Volume is commonly quantified numerically using the SI derived unit, the cubic meter. Capacity is the ability to hold a fluid, very similar to volume. However, volume and capacity are sometimes distinguished: first, capacity is used for how much a container can hold (with contents measured commonly in liters or its derived units), and volume means how much space an object displaces (popularly measured in cubic meters or its derived units); second, volume and capacity are also distinguished in capacity management.

Units of capacity and volume conversion chart are discussed here in metric conversion of capacity and volume and also in customary units of capacity and volume.

In math when we use capacity and volume, we normally use liter to represent as the standard unit, and the other standard units are in the units in capacity and volume conversion chart.

1 milliliter = 0.001 liter

1 centiliter = 0.01 liter

1 deciliter = 0.1 liter

1 kiloliter = 1000 liters

Customary units of capacity and volume conversion table are:

1 gallon = 4 quarts

1 gallon = 128 ounces

1 quart = 2 pints

1 pint = 2 cups

1 cup = 8 ounces

#### Calculator Use

Conversions are performed by using a conversion factor. By knowing the conversion factor, converting between units can become a simple multiplication problem:

S * C = E

Where S is our starting value, C is our conversion factor, and E is our end converted result.

To simply convert from any unit into cubic meters, for example, from 10 liters, just multiply by the conversion value in the right column in the table.

10 L * 0.001 [ (m3) / (L) ] = 0.01 m3

To convert from m3 into units in the left column divide by the value in the right column or, multiply by the reciprocal, 1/x.

0.01 m3 / 0.001 [ (m3) / (L) ] = 10 L

To convert among any units in the left column, say from A to B, you can multiply by the factor for A to convert A into m/s2 then divide by the factor for B to convert out of m3. Or, you can find the single factor you need by dividing the A factor by the B factor.

For example, to convert from liters to gallons you would multiply by 0.001 then divide by 0.003785412. Or, multiply by 0.001/0.003785412 = 0.26417203. So, to convert directly from L to gal you multiply by 0.26417203.

#### What is volume measured in?

A cubic meter is the SI volume unit. However, as it's quite impractical, most often you will encounter volume expressed in:

cubic centimeters

cubic inches

milliliters

liters

gallons

#### What is the SI unit for volume?

The cubic meter (m3) is the SI unit of volume. It is derived from the base SI unit of length - meter. Although the cubic meter is the basic SI unit, other units are used more commonly: for the metric system milliliters, liters, or cubic centimeters are popular choices, while for the Imperial system you can find volume expressed in pints, gallons, cubic inches, cubic feet or cubic yards.

#### How to find volume of a liquid?

Graduated cylinders and Erlenmeyer flasks will work if you need to roughly measure the volume of a liquid. For more precise measurements, you would need to use the volumetric pipettes and burets. However, if you're baking a cake or prepare some delicious dish and the recipe uses volume units, you can simply use a measuring cup, glass, or spoon.
