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.

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.
