## 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 3 cubic meters into liters we have to multiply 3 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

3 m3 → V(L)

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

V(L) = 3 m3 × 1000 L

V(L) = 3000 L

The final result is:

3 m3 → 3000 L

We conclude that 3 cubic meters is equivalent to 3000 liters:

3 cubic meters = 3000 liters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 0.00033333333333333 × 3 cubic meters.

Another way is saying that 3 cubic meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00033333333333333 liters.

## Approximate result

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

3 m3 ≅ 3000 L

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