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 centimeters, 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.

Liter

Definition: A liter (symbol: L) is a unit of volume that is accepted for use with the International System of Units (SI) but is technically not an SI unit. One liter is equal to 1 cubic decimeter (dm3), 1,000 cubic centimeters (cm3), or 1/1,000 cubic meters (m3).

History/origin: There was a point from 1901 to 1964 when a liter was defined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water under the conditions of maximum density at atmospheric pressure. However, due to the mass-volume relationship of water being based on a number of factors that can be cumbersome to control (temperature, pressure, purity, isotopic uniformity), as well as the discovery that the prototype of the kilogram was slightly too large (making the liter equal to 1.000028 dm3 rather than 1 dm3), the definition of the liter was reverted to its previous, and current definition.

Current use: The liter is used to measure many liquid volumes as well as to label containers containing said liquids. It is also used to measure certain non-liquid volumes such as the size of car trunks, backpacks and climbing packs, computer cases, microwaves, refrigerators, and recycling bins, as well as for expressing fuel volumes and prices in most countries around the world.
