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.

Things you need
- Metric ruler
Measure the width of the cube. For example, assume the width of a cube measures 1.3 meters.
Measure a height of the cube. For example, assume the height of a cube measures 1.7 meters.
Measure the depth of a cube. For example, assume the depth of a cube measures .6 meters.
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.
