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.

Converting cm,mm,m to L, g/mL, cm^3

Postby Miss Confused » Wed Feb 14, 2007 10:19 am

A block of wood 13.0 cm x 15.0mm x 0.289 m has a mass of 230.56 grams.
(a)What is the Volume of the block in cm^3 (centimeters cubed)?
(b) What's the Volume in Liters?
(c)What is the density of the block of wood in g/mL?

Can someone please explain what the steps are for converting this? I would really appreciate it! Thank You! = )

Homework?

(a) to calculate the volume you need to multiply all three dimensions (length, width and height) together. You'll get the volume in cm^3

(b) to convert the volume from cm^3 to liters, you can use our converter http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/volume

(c) to find the density in g/mL you need to divide the mass of the block in grams by its volume in milliliters. You have the mass, and you got the volume in liters in step (b). There are 1000 mL in a liter. So simply divide your block mass by its volume in liters and then divide the result by 1000.

1 L = 1000 mL = 1000 cm³

Liter is a "special name" for cubic decimeter dm³. There are 10 cm in 1 dm, therefore 1000 cm³ in 1 dm³
