Conversion formula

The conversion factor from cubic meters to liters is 1000, which means that 1 cubic meter is equal to 1000 liters:

1 m3 = 1000 L

To convert 16 cubic meters into liters we have to multiply 16 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from cubic meters to liters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m3 → 1000 L

16 m3 → V(L)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume V in liters:

V(L) = 16 m3 × 1000 L

V(L) = 16000 L

The final result is:

16 m3 → 16000 L

We conclude that 16 cubic meters is equivalent to 16000 liters:

16 cubic meters = 16000 liters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 6.25E-5 × 16 cubic meters.

Another way is saying that 16 cubic meters is equal to 1 ÷ 6.25E-5 liters.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that sixteen cubic meters is approximately sixteen thousand liters:

16 m3 ≅ 16000 L

An alternative is also that one liter is approximately zero times sixteen cubic meters.
