Do you ever struggle with converting the fluid volume? If the answer is yes, this liter to cc converter comes in handy. The tool is simple and practical, as it directly converts the volume from liters into cubic centimeters.

The article below explains how this converter works, the tool's calculations, and what liter and cc mean. You'll also find a hint where to find similar volume converters.

What is a liter?

A liter (or a liter in British English) is a metric unit of volume. One liter equals a volume of 1 cubic decimeter (dm3), or 1000 cubic centimeters. A cubic centimeter is often referred to as cc or cm³

As mentioned above, a liter is a volume of 1 dm3, so, therefore, it can fit in a cube of 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm.

A liter used to be a base unit in the French metric system. However, the standard unit in measuring volume nowadays is cc, a cubic centimeter. It fits in a cube of 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm. A cc equals the volume of 1 ml.

A liter is not a SI unit, yet it's worldwide accepted for use. Interestingly, one liter of water weighs almost one kilogram. With other fluids, the weight of one liter varies, depending on their density (easy to calculate with our density calculator).

M=D×VM = D\times V


  • MM — Mass;
  • VV — Volume; and
  • DD — Density.

For example, one liter of olive oil typically weighs 0.92 kg or 920 grams. That is because olive oil is less dense than water. The same volume of this fluid occupies more space.

How to convert liters to cc?

To convert the volume easily with this liter to cc converter, just follow these steps:

  1. Decide what volume of liters you want to convert.
  2. Fill in the first section with the given volume.

The results appear automatically. You can also start by filling in the volume in cc; the calculator works both ways.

Once you've completed calculating the volume in cc, maybe it's time to search for other methods and volume units to change to? Here you'll find more volume converters:


How many cubic centimeters in a liter?

One liter equals 1000 cc (cubic centimeters). Therefore a cube of one-liter volume may contain the following:

  1. 1000 cubic centimeters, 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm each.
  2. 1 cubic decimeter, 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm
  3. 1000 ml.

Is a liter a mass or a volume?

A liter is a volume unit. For mass, we instead use kilograms — one liter of water weighs almost 1 kg. The weight of a liter of a liquid varies depending on its density.

What is the volume of a 2 liter bottle?

The volume is 2 liters. As liters are volume units, the answer is that simple. The weight of such a 2L bottle is circa 2 kg.
