Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Hello, can any one tell me please how I convert 600mm x 122mm x 610mm to get the gallon volume of said area.
( I think it's 44.65200 m3 in area - but need help to get gallon volume)
Thank you.

Each dimension is less than 1 meter, so volume has to be less than 1 m³.

You can stick with millimeters and convert units of volume afterward, or you can convert units of length beforehand and multiply for volume in desired units.

I prefer to either use centimeters (getting volume in milliliters) or decimeters (getting volume in liters.

In reality, I convert in my head as I enter numbers in calulator, but converting
6 dm x 1.22 dm x 6.1 dm = 44.652 dm³ = 44.652 L.

There are 3.7854 L per gallon, so 11.8 US gallons.
