What is cubic centimeter?

The cubic centimetre (or cubic centimeter) is a unit of volume in the metric system equal to 10-6 cubic meters (1 cm³ = 10-6 m³), the derived unit of volume in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to 1012 cubic micrometers (μm³), or 1,000 cubic millimeters (mm³) or 0.001 cubic decimeters (dm³) (units of volume in the SI), or 1.0 milliliter (mL), or 0.01 deciliters (dL) or 0.001 liters (L), which are units of volume in the metric system.

The cubic centimeter (cm³) is an SI derived unit of volume. The centimeter (cm) is a unit of length in the SI. A volume of 1.0 cubic centimeter is the volume of a cube that is 1.0 centimeter on each edge.

One cubic centimeter corresponds to one milliliter (1 cm³ = 1 mL).

The cubic centimeter is used in science and in the automotive and medical fields. In the medical field, the abbreviation "cc" for cubic centimeter is not recommended for use due to the risk that it might be misinterpreted as "00" which would result in a 100-fold overdose.
