 From: cubic centimeter To: cubic inch

### Cubic centimeter

Definition: The cubic centimeter (symbol: cm3) is an SI derived unit of volume based on the cubic meter. It is the volume of a cube with measurements 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm, and is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a cubic meter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or 1 milliliter. The abbreviations of cc and ccm are also sometimes used to denote a cubic centimeter, but their use is deprecated in the International System of Units (SI).

History/origin: The cubic centimeter was derived from the cubic meter, using an SI prefix, in this case "centi," to denote a submultiple of the base unit.

Current use: The cubic centimeter is used in many scientific disciplines, often in the form of milliliters (symbol: mL). Although the cubic centimeter is based on the SI unit of volume, the mL (and its multiples) are more commonly used as a measurement of volume than the cubic centimeter. The United States medical and automotive fields are an exception to this, and the cubic centimeter is still widely used in these fields. In contrast, the United Kingdom uses cubic centimeters in the medical, but not the automotive field.

### Cubic inch

Definition: The cubic inch (symbol: in3) is a unit of volume in the Imperial and United States customary systems of measurement. It is the volume of a cube with measurements 1 in × 1 in × 1 in. It is equal to 16.387064 cm3 or mL.

History/origin: The cubic inch is derived from the inch, a unit of length within the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. Since the 1950s and 1960s, with the adoption of the international yard, the inch has been defined as exactly 2.54 cm.

Current use: The cubic inch and cubic foot are still used in the United States, and to some extent in the United Kingdom. However, SI (International System of Units) units of measurement are also widely used throughout these countries.

In the US, the automotive and aircraft industries in particular use the cubic inch to some extent, though the SI derived or SI accepted units of volume (liter, milliliter, and cubic meter) are also used.

In the UK, automotive model numbers are sometimes denoted in cubic inches.
