# Advice 1: How to convert square meters to cubic meters

When solving physics problems often have to translate physical quantities from one unit of measure to another. Typically, this is similar, so-called a decimal fraction and multiples of units, differing only in the multiplier. For example, grams and kilograms, meters, and kilometers. In practice, however, it is sometimes necessary to convert a rather disparate units of measurement, such as liters and kilograms or square meters.
Instruction
1
To translate the square meters to cubic meters, you need to know the thickness or height of those objects or areas for which the amount is converted. Typically, such transfer is a payment for some construction materials, premises and vessels. The cubic meters are used to measure or calculate the volume, square meters to represent the area.
2
For the translation of square meters per cubic multiply the square base to the height (thickness, depth), measured in meters. If the thickness of the material (subject) is measured in other units (millimeters, centimeters, decimeters), you must first ensure that it is in meters.
3
Example.
The construction required to lay 500 square feet of flooring boards with a thickness of 2 cm.
Question.
How many cubic meters of boards will it take?
Solution.
1. Set the thickness of the boards in meter: 2 (cm) / 100 = 0,02 (m).
2. Multiply the area of the boards for thickness: 500 (m2) * 0,02 (m) = 10 (m3).
Response.
The volume of boards will be 10 m3.
4
Example.
The basin area is 1000 square meters, and its depth is 2 meters.
Question.
How many cubic meters of water required to completely fill the pool?
Solution.
Multiply the area of the basin at depth: 1000 (m2) * 2 (m) = 2000 (m3).
Response.
To fill the pool will require two cubic metres of water.
5
To properly translate the height (thickness, depth) in meters, use the following equations:
if the height is given in kilometers (km), multiply it by 1000;
if in decimeters (DM) – divide by 10;
if in centimeters (cm) divide by 100;
if in millimeters (mm) divide by 1000;
if in microns (µm) – divide by 1000000.
6
If the height (thickness, depth) are given in mixed units of measurement, write down the number in decimal.

Example.
Growth in the measurement was 1 meter 88 centimeters.
Question.
How much of human height is in meters?
Solution.
Since a centimeter is a hundredth part of the meter, then 1 m 88 cm can be written as 1 m + 0.88 m, which is equal to: 1,88 m.
Response.
Human height – 1.88 meters.

# Advice 2: How to convert to cubic meters

A unit of volume in standard SI units - cubic meters, but we do not always meet the task. In this regard, there is a need to translate the value from a specified unit in cubic meters. How to do it?

Before solving the problem translate all values into a single standard system of units (SI). Sometimes this procedure helps to even see the key to solving the problem.

# Advice 4: How to convert cubic centimeters to liters

Along with the measurement of the substance in cubic metres and its derivatives (including cubic centimetres), international system of units (SI) allows use litres and derivatives such as units of measure. This duality supports the urgency of the task of conversion of volume from cubic centimeters to liters and Vice versa.
Instruction
1
Divide the known volume of a material measured in cubic centimeters, exactly one thousand to determine its volume in liters. Since 1964, the SI is equal to one liter volume of one cubic decimeter, and it is one thousand cubic centimeters. It must be borne in mind that from 1901 to 1964 the litre was considered not exactly 1000 cubic centimeters, and 1000,028. And before making 1 Aug 1793 in France, the metric system of weights and measures liter and is approximately 83% of its current value.
2
Use to quickly convert from cubic centimeters to liters Converter units, available on the Internet. For example, go to the page http://convert-me.com/ru/convert/volumein the section "Metric", locate the "Cubic centimeter" and enter the known value of the volume. Then click "Calculate" and the script will put the equivalent of the value entered in the field "Liter". At the same time filled and the other fields in this section, you will be able to see the same volume, expressed in ten different derived units from liters and cubic meters.

# Advice 5: How to transfer Cuba to the m

Cubes at home is usually called the volume of the room expressed in cubic yards (cubic meters). Meters, usually referred to as the size of the apartment or the house, represented in square meters. Sometimes in this way and measure the dimensions of a large furniture and household appliances. To correctly calculate which area is a bulky thing that required Cuba to translate in meters square.
You will need
• calculator.
Instruction
1
To put Cuba in meters square, divide the volume of the apartment or room at ceiling height. The volume of dwellings should be expressed in cubic metres (m3) and the ceiling height in meters. For example, the volume of the apartment is 200 m3, ceiling height – 2.5 meters. Then its area is: 200 / 2,5 = 80 meters (square).
2
If the ceiling height in some areas doesn't match (which often occurs in rural houses and cottages), for transfer of the cubes in meters , determine the area of each room separately and add the resulting values. For example, the cottage consists of two floors. The volume of all the rooms of the first floor of 300 m3 at a height of 2.5 m and rooms on the second floor have a height of 2 meters and a volume of 200 cubic meters. In this case, the total area is: 300 / 2,5 + 200 / 2 = 120 + 100 = 220 square meters.
3
To determine how many square feet will take, for example, a refrigerator, as well as in the first case, divide its volume by the height. However, please note that the prices typically indicate the internal volume of the refrigerator (washing machine). Therefore, the number of occupied household appliances meters in practice be more. In addition, the working volume of household appliances is usually indicated in liters or cubic decimeters to be translated to cubic meters.
4
For translation in cubes (cubic meters) volume, given in liters or cubic decimeters, divide the number of liters (cubic decimeters) per 1000. For example, in a 200-liter barrel fits 200 / 1000 = 0.2 is a cube of water. To convert to cubicmeters cubic Santimeters, divide the number of cubic centimeters by 1,000,000.
5
If you want to set of the cubes in meters , the cubic capacity of spaces with sloped ceilings attic space, terraces), as the average height use the height of the room. To calculate the average fold height of the ceiling at the high walls and low, and then divide this amount in half.
6
To convert to meters the amount of any material, for example, boards, pre-verify, in which meters must be translated into square or linear. To translate cubic meters of boards in meters of a square divide the number of cubes on the thickness of the boards, expressed in meters. When translating cubic meters of boards in meters per divide the volume of cubes on the boards to thickness and width of the Board measured in meters.

# Advice 6: How to convert centimeters into cubes

Of course, centimeters and cubes (cubic centimeters) are used to measure different physical units. In practice, however, sometimes you have to use both units. Naturally, this is required supplementary information that can be specified, based on the specific conditions of the problem.
You will need
• calculator
Instruction
1
This unit of measure as the inch used to measure length, width, height, thickness) of the subject (object). Cubes (cubic centimeters) are used to measure volume. Because before you can translate inches in Cuba, please specify which parameters were measured in centimeters.
2
If in centimeters measured the dimensions of the object, having the shape of a rectangular parallelepiped, then just multiply among themselves the numerical values of length, width, height (thickness) of the object. The result is the volume of the object, expressed in cubes (cm3).
3
Example
Determine the number of cubes (volume) in a standard matchbox.
The decision
According to GOST 1820-2001 "Matches. Technical conditions", the size of a matchbox are:

Of 5.05 x 3.75 x 1.45 cm
To get the number of cubic centimeters, multiply these parameters:

5,05 * 3,75 * 1,45 = 27,459375 ≈ cm3 of 27.46.
4
If in inches set the height of the prism or cylinder, to translate those inches into cubes (determine volume), specify the area of the base figure and multiply the numerical value of this area to the height. The response, however, must be expressed in square centimeters (cm2). By the way, this method is suitable to calculate the volume of a rectangular parallelepiped, as a particular case of the prism.
5
Example
Determine the number of cubes in a glass with a bottom area of 10 cm2 and a height of 20 centimeters.
The decision
As a glass can be considered a cylinder, multiply its height and footprint:

10*20=200 (cm3).
Answer: Cup volume – 200 cubic meters (cubic centimeters, cm3, ml, ml).
6
If in inches set the parameters of more complex shapes, to translate centimeters into cubes, use the formula calculates the volume of the shape. If the figure has a very complex geometric shape, then divide it (relatively) for a few more simple shapes and calculate the volume of each of them. Then, fold the amounts of the components of the figures.

# Advice 7: How to convert cubic meter to liter

The volume parameter of solid, liquid and gaseous bodies that defines the set of dimensional characteristics of the body. Mathematically it is a product of length, width and height of the body. That is why in the international system of units it is measured in cubic meters. But often in life there are other units of volume such as liter, milliliter, cubic centimeter.
Instruction
1
According to the physico-mathematical theory of one liter equals zero point one thousandth of cubic meters, that is 1 liter = 0.001 m^3 (where m^3 – means "cubic meter"). Then one cubic meter is equal to one thousand liters, 1 m^3 = 1000L.
Based on the above rules, it follows the algorithm: to convert cubic meters to liters, multiply the given in the problem statement numerical value by one thousand. For this purpose the comma from numbers on move three characters to the right.
Example 1. May need to translate 5 cubic meters to liters. Solution: 5 m^3 = 5*1000 = 5000 liters.
Example 2. May need to transfer of 0.5 cubic meters to liters. Solution: 0.5 m^3 = 0,5*1000 = 500 L.
Example 3. May need to translate 57 cubic meters to liters. Solution: 57 m^3 = 57*1000 = 57000 L.
2
If you want to translate liters to cubic meters, multiply the number by zero point one one-thousandth or divide it by a thousand. These mathematical actions of a comma from the original number moves to the left three characters.
Example 4. You want to translate 0,3 liters per cubic meter. Solution: 0.3 l = 0,3 / 1000 = 0,3 * 0,001 = 0,0003 m^3.
Example 5. How many cubic meters is placed in 8 liters of a substance? Solution: 8 l = 8 / 1000 = 0,008 m^3.
3
If the resulting answer is too long, simplify recording, using prefixes. Table notation adopted (multiple or decimal fraction) decimal prefixes can be found in any physical directory. One of them: O. F. Kabardin. Physics. Reference materials. Moscow. "Education", 2000.
Example 5. How many cubic meters is placed in 8 liters of a substance? Solution: 8 l = 8 / 1000 = 0,008 m^3 = 8 ml. (milliliters).
4
You can also too long, burdened with zeros, the number of record in the form of works with power ten. That is, the number 1000 can be written as 10^3 (cubed), and the fraction 0,0042 present in the form of 42* 10^(-4) (to the minus fourth power).
If you go back to example 4, then the solution can continue: 0.3 l = 0,3/1000 = 0,3*0,001 =0,0003 m^3 = 3*10 (-4) m^3.

# Advice 8: How to convert square meters to square kilometers

To be able to specify the size of a limited section of the plane, mathematicians introduced the definition of "surface area". To quantify this characteristic at different times and in different countries used different units. Today, most countries use recommended in the international system, SI unit of area measurement is square meters , and a multiple of their size, including square kilometers.
Instruction
1
Divide the resulting measurement in square meters the size of a surface in a million to change the value in square kilometers. This conversion factor is derived directly from the name of the unit of measurement is "square kilometer". The prefix "kilo" in the SI system is used to refer to thousandfold increase in the unit - which is a word derived from the Greek meaning thousand. And the word "square" indicates that this thousand be raised to the second power, i.e. multiplied by itself. One thousand squared, will result in a unit with six zeros is a million.
2
Move the decimal point in the original value six positions to the left to convert square meters into square kilometers. This operation does not even require to make any calculations.
3
If there are problems with conversion, then use the online calculators to convert units of area measurement - in the Internet you can find a lot of. For example, go to the page http://convertworld.com/ru/ploshhad/Квадратные+meters.the html in the box under "I want to" specify the initial size in meters. In the drop-down list next to the field "square meters" is selected by default, and in the next drop-down list to specify the desired accuracy of the result of the conversion. Immediately after that, opposite to "square Kilometer", you will see the equivalent of the initial value, expressed in square kilometers.
4
Search engines also know how to convert units of area measurement. To download, for example, the home page of the Google search engine and type the appropriate query. For example, if you want to translate 1587 m?, the query could look like this: "1587 square meters in square kilometers". The Google calculator will recalculate and display the result: "1587 (square meters) = 0.001587 square kilometre".

Imagine yourself the owner of a wonderful aquarium. In one cubic meter of water can accommodate a myriad of marine life and arrange a real underwater Kingdom with strange algae and fanciful compositions of rocks. But such beauty requires constant care. Once a week when cleaning the aquarium you need to drain some water and refill with fresh water. Sea water will not pour from the tap, you need to prepare the necessary amount in advance. You will have to determine how many liters is the updated portion of water. All chemicals to maintain the desired composition of the water and the health of the inhabitants of the aquarium added to the water in amounts exactly corresponding to the volume. Usually the user is given the rate of reagent per liter of water.So you'll have to determine how many liters in a cubic meter.

# Advice 10: How to convert square millimeter

In 1960 adopted the international system of units SI (System International). For the needs of science and technology this system was introduced 7 base units: meter, kilogram, second, ampere, mole, Kelvin and Candela, as well as their derivatives. The same for the whole world units greatly facilitate the understanding of scientists of all countries. Difficulties arise only when the values more or less than is commonly SI. And this happens often. For example, the area of the countries measured in square kilometers, and the cross-sectional area of the electric cable in square millimeters.

For translation in square millimeters square meters look closely at the word "millimeter" more closely. It consists of two parts. The root "meter" is a unit of length in SI. The prefix "Milli -" means a thousandth of something, and is the literal entry of a decimal multiplier: 0.001 or 10^-3. Conditionally write it like this: 1mm=10^-3M. thus, any length, expressed in millimeters, can be represented as follows: Hm = X•10^-3 M. for Example: 27mm=27•10^-3M.
2
Square millimeter is a millimeter, multiplied by the millimeter, or 10^-3M squared: mm^2= (10^-3) ^2 m^2=10^(-3•2) m^2=10^-6m^2. Ie, instead of the first letter "m" (miles), write "10^-6".For example: 51mm^2= 51• (10^-3) ^2 m^2=51•10^-6 m^2.
3
The same method give not only SI millimeters squared, but in Cuba and in any other degree. Example: 394мм^3=394•(10^-3)^3 m^3=394•10^-9 m^3, 68mm^-6=68•(10^-3M)^-6 m^-6=68•10^18 m^-6.
4
In this way translate into various degrees and other fraction and multiples of a meter.For example: 79cm^3=79•(10^-2m)^3 m^3=79•10^-6 m^3, 422 km^2=422•(10^3M)^2 m^2=422•10^6 m^2.
Note
In forest and agriculture area is measured in hectares (ha). Remember that 1 hectare=1•10^4 m^2
