    Hello Adorable Moose!

    To convert units of volume (milliliters in this case), into units of capacity (cubic meters in this case), you can memorize the equivalences between the two systems.

    For example, knowing that 1 ml = 1 cm³, you can now convert centimeters to cubic meters. 

    We will have to divide by 1000, because we make three “jumps” to larger measures (10x10x10 = 1000). As the units are at power 3, you will have to divide by 1000 to get to the power of 3. In this case, 1cm³ ÷ 1000³ = 0,000000001 m³.

    I hope that this answers your question! Don’t hesitate to ask other questions!
