# How much is a cubic centimeter

The **cubic centimeter** is the unit used to **measure the volume** . It is equivalent to one millionth of a cubic meter and is represented by the **cm³** symbol. This unit is usually used to calculate the volume of a large amount of liquid, a pool for example, or to catalog the engines of cars. In case some day you have to calculate your equivalences, in this article we show you **how much a cubic centimeter equals** .

#### one

As we have already said, the cubic centimeter is a unit that measures the volume of what corresponds to **a cube of one centimeter per side** .

#### two

Therefore, one cubic centimeter is equal to 0.001 liters.

#### 3

If we consider the relation above, we will realize that **1 cm³ is equivalent to 1 milliliter**, so a cube of 1 cm³ has a capacity of 1 ml.

#### 4

If what we want is to measure the mass, the equivalence of **1 cm³ is 1 g** . In this way, in a 20 cm³ cube we can put 20 g of frozen water, for example.
