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

SI Metric

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

Formal: m3

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

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.

BIPM: SI derived units - Section 2-2

The cubic metre is in worldwide use in science and is in general use everywhere except the United States, Liberia and dependent territories. In other English speaking countries the use of cubic metres is not universal, with Imperial measurements still being used by some people.

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

Imperial & US Customary

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

Yard

Formal: There is no formal abbreviation for the cubic yard

The following abbreviations are common cu yd and yd3. Many other abbreviations are sometimes seen including cu yds, cu yard, cu yards, cu.yd., yds3, yd^3, yds^3, cubic yd and cubic yds.

The cubic yard is an Imperial and US Customary unit of area still in use in the United States. The cubic yard is derived from the yard, which in turn is now formally defined in terms of the metre.

Cubic yards are a standard unit of volume in the United States and Liberia and are still occasionally used informally in the United Kingdom and other British Commonwealth countries that formerly used Imperial units as standard.

- 1 cubic yard = 46,656 cubic inches
- 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet
