1. The cubic meter
The cubic meter is the volume of a cube with edges one meter in length. Its symbol is: m^{3}.
2. Multiples of the cubic meter
These are:
1 cubic decameter is equal to 1 000 cubic meters: 1 dam^{3} = 1 000 m^{3} .
1 cubic hectometer is equal to 1 000 000 cubic meters: 1 hm^{3} =
1 000 000 m^{3}.
1 cubic kilometer is equal to 1 000 000 000 cubic meters: 1 km^{3} =
1 000 000 000
m^{3}.
1 cubic myriameter is equal to 1 000 000 000 000 cubic meters: 1
mam^{3} = 1 000 000 000 000 m^{3}.
The units of volume increase and decrease from 1000 to 1000.
The superior unit is 1000 more than the lower.
