Cubic Metres

The cubic metre is the main metric unit of volume, being a derived unit of the metre.

SI Metric

### Definition

The cubic metre is the SI derived unit of volume. It is derived from the metre, the SI derived unit of length. It is the volume of a cube with edges one metre in length.

Metre

### Abbreviation

Formal: m3

The abbreviations cu m, cubic m and cu metres are sometimes seen.

### Information

The cubic metre is the standard unit of area in the SI metric system other units of volume in the SI system are generally based on the cubic metre with other SI standard prefixes. Note that as the unit is cubed, the factor for the prefix is triple the usual factor. i.e a centimetre is 10-2 metres thus a cubic centimetre is 10-6 cubic metres.

Cubic Feet

The cubic foot is the volume enclosed by a cube with edges of length one foot. It is still in everyday use in the United States.

### Unit System

Imperial & US Customary

### Definition

The cubic foot is defined as the volume enclosed by a cube with edges of length one yard.

Yard

### Abbreviation

Formal: There is no formal abbreviation for the cubic foot

The following abbreviations are common cu ft and ft3. Many other abbreviations are sometimes seen including cu feet, cu foot, cu.ft., ft^3, cubic ft, cbf, cbft, cb.ft.

### Information

The cubic foot is an Imperial and US Customary unit of area still in use in the United States. In the United Kingdom where the unit originated it is still occasionally seen.

Cubic feet are used for gas and water billing in the United States of America where billing units of 100 cubic feet are used. These units are given the tag CCF or HCF where the C stands for Centum (latin for hundred) and the H stands for Hundred.

Cubic feet are also commonly used for household appliance sizes in the US, including sizes for refridgerators, washers, dishwashers, ovens and microwave ovens.
