# Convert Cubic Foot to Cubic Centimeter

Please provide values below to convert cubic foot [ft^3] to cubic centimeter [cm^3], or vice versa.

 From: cubic foot To: cubic centimeter

### Cubic foot

Definition: A cubic foot (symbol: ft3) is a unit of volume in the Imperial and United States customary systems of measurement defined as the volume of a cube with side measurements of 1 ft × 1 ft × 1 ft. It is equal to 1,728 cubic inches, approximately 0.028317 cubic meters, and 28.317 liters.

History/origin: The cubic foot is derived from the foot, the definition of which is based on the international yard which was adopted in the 1950s and 1960s as exactly equal to 0.9144 m.

Current use: The cubic foot is used in the United States and in some parts of Canada and the United Kingdom, though in all of these countries, the SI (International System of Units) units of volume, liter, milliliter, and cubic meter, are also used.

### 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.
