 From: cubic centimeter To: cubic yard

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 yard

Definition: A cubic yard (symbol: yd3) is an imperial and United States Customary unit of volume defined as the volume of a cube with measurements 1 yd × 1 yd × 1 yd. It is equal to 27 cubic feet, 0.7645549 cubic meters, and 764.5549 liters.

History/origin: The cubic yard is based on the international yard, which was adopted in the 1950s and 1960s, and is equal to 0.9144 meters.

Current use: The cubic yard is used to some degree in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. All of these countries also use metric or SI (International System of Units) measurements for volume such as liters, milliliters, and cubic meters.
