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 5 cubic meters into liters we have to multiply 5 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

5 m3 → V(L)

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

V(L) = 5 m3 × 1000 L

V(L) = 5000 L

The final result is:

5 m3 → 5000 L

We conclude that 5 cubic meters is equivalent to 5000 liters:

5 cubic meters = 5000 liters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 0.0002 × 5 cubic meters.

Another way is saying that 5 cubic meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0002 liters.

Approximate result

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

5 m3 ≅ 5000 L

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