Volume is the three-dimensional space inside an object. A meter is a length of measurement used in the metric system. Cubic meters is a standard measurement used to describe the volume of a cube. You can calculate the cubic meters of any cube my multiplying the length by the width by the height of the cube.

Skill level:
Easy

• Metric ruler

Instructions

1. 1

Measure the width of the cube. For example, assume the width of a cube measures 1.3 meters.

2. 2

Measure a height of the cube. For example, assume the height of a cube measures 1.7 meters.

3. 3

Measure the depth of a cube. For example, assume the depth of a cube measures .6 meters.

4. 4

Multiply the width by the height by the depth. Continuing the same example, 1.3 x 1.7 x .6 = 1.326 meters cubed. This figure represents the volume expressed in cubic meters for the cube.
