# How do i convert m2 to cm3?

i have to convert 1.5m2 to whatever in cm3.

No idea.

Help much appreciated.

This is a question on a past paper as well. Cor i wouldn't have wanted to have been them... thanks guys. I'll just hunt down my teacher and demand an explanation.

• 1m=100cm=10² cm²

1m²=10,000cm²=10^4cm²

1.5m²=1.5*10^4cm²

• Cm3 To M2

• 1 m = 100 cm

1 m^2 = (100 cm)^2

= 1000 cm^2

I AM VERY SORRY. You cannot convert m^2 to cm^3

m^2 is an area and cm^3 is a volume

• There are 100 centimeters to a meter and so 1 squaremeter is 100^2 = 10 000 square centimeters to a square meter. Multiply or divide by 10 000. 100 square meters = 1 000 000 square centimeters. 100 square centimeters = 0.01 square meters. Ain´t metric grand? Try doing the same for square feet and square yards.

• m2 = m X m represents two dimentional area

cm3 = cm X cm X cm represents a three dimentional or unit of volume

• I'm sorry, but 1.5m^2 is a measure of area whereas cm^3 is a measure of volume. You can't inter convert them unless they are measuring in the same dimensions.

• square meter = area

cubic centimeter = volume

∵ area ≠ volume

∴ square meter ≠ cubic centimeter
