Converting from mm to metres cubed.
If I have an answer of 35,700,000mm cubed how do I convert this to metres cubed. I have worked out the answer a different way to get 0.357metres. What is the formula for converting this from mm to centimetres cubed and then metres cubed? I would be grateful for an explanation.

there are 1,000,000 cubic centimeters in 1 cubic meter I hope this helps if you look on the home page there is a conversion table

Re: Converting from mm to metres cubed.
I did forget that you wanted a formula.
length times width equals square times height equals cubic. L * W = Square L * W * H = cubic to go back if all sides were equal you could use square root from cubic to square and square root again to get back to length or width. I think you were off on your answer. I didn't work it out but I think there is a zero needed on the right hand side of the decimal point. Last edited by Sandra; 06102007 at 09:00 AM.

Re: Converting from mm to metres cubed.
Hi Jim and Sandra,
There is 1000millimeters in a meter. There is 100centimeters in a meter. This means that a cube shaped object with all its sides 1 meter in length is 1 cubic meter, or 100x100x100cm = 1,000,000 cubic centimeters 1000x1000x1000mm = 1,000,000,000 cubic millimeters. divide your mm³ answer by 1,000,000,000 to get m³ 35,700,000 ÷ 1,000,000,000 = 0.0357m³ (There is 10mm in 1cm) Last edited by Mrs X; 06102007 at 05:15 PM.

1 m^3 = 10^9 mm^3
we're thinking in the third dimension baby

hi, how to convert mm to cbm?800*1200*2000?

Re: Converting from mm to metres cubed.
Two ways:
a) Multiply the millimeters and divide by 10^9 (it's 1000 mm/m, cubed) b) Convert to meters and multiply, 0.8 x 1.2 x 1.2 = 1.152m³ The two ways give the same answer, I find "b" easier, but up to you.

For a cylinder, V = (pi/4)*D²*L L = (4/pi)*V/D² = 1.2732 x 20000 cm³/(45 cm)² = 9.88 cm That would be the fill level, the container should be a little taller to allow headspace for thermal expansion.
