## Units of Volume

In this article, we will explore our volume converter tool that encompasses a wide range of units, including both metric and imperial systems.

### Metric Units

• Liter (l) - A liter is the base unit of volume in the metric system, denoting the volume occupied by one cubic decimeter. It is equivalent to 1,000 milliliters, 0.1 deciliter, or 0.001 cubic meters.

• Deciliter (dl) - A deciliter is equal to 1/10 of a liter or 100 milliliters.

• Milliliter (ml) - A milliliter is equivalent to 1/1000 of a liter or one cubic centimeter.

• Cubic Meter (m³) - A cubic meter is the SI unit for volume, representing the volume occupied by a cube with edges measuring one meter. It is equivalent to 1,000 liters.

• Cubic Centimeter (cm³) - A cubic centimeter is equivalent to one milliliter or 1/1000 of a liter.

### Imperial Units

• Cubic Yard (yd³) - A cubic yard is a unit of volume in the imperial system, representing the volume occupied by a cube with edges measuring one yard. It is equivalent to 27 cubic feet.

• Cubic Foot (ft³) - A cubic foot is equal to the volume occupied by a cube with edges measuring one foot. It is equivalent to 1,728 cubic inches.

• Cubic Inch (in³) - A cubic inch is the volume occupied by a cube with edges measuring one inch. It is equivalent to 0.000579 cubic feet or 0.0000214335 cubic yards.
