How much is a cubic centimeter? The cubic centimeter is the unit used for measure volume. It is equal to one millionth of a cubic meter and is represented by the symbol cm³. This unit is often used to calculate the volume of a large quantity of liquid, a swimming pool for example, or to catalog automobile engines. In case you ever have to calculate their equivalences, in this OneHowTo article we will show you how much is a cubic centimeter.

Steps to follow:

1

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. Image: webbmatte.es
