Q:

# What is 1 ton in cubic meters?

A:

A ton is a measure of weight, whereas a cubic meter is a measure of volume, so the material must be known to be able to convert the units. One ton of pure water is equal to 1 cubic meter.

There are 1,000 liters in 1 cubic meter of pure water, and a liter of pure water weighs 1 kilogram. Therefore, 1 ton of water equals 1 cubic meter. Because saltwater is less dense than pure water, a ton of saltwater takes up less volume, only 0.97 cubic meters. One ton of steel is 0.13 cubic meters in volume, and 1 ton of gasoline takes up 1.34 cubic meters.

To convert gas usage from imperial cubic meters to kilowatt hours, multiply the cubic meters value by 31.59. The conversion is actually a four-step process that requires a volume correction factor and the calorific value.

Millimeters are a measure of length, while cubic centimeters are a measure of volume. Because of this, the two scales are not strictly analogous and cannot be exchanged without conversion of two-dimensional length to a three-dimensional volume. Both units are metric, however, and so further conversion is unnecessary.

Converting meters to miles takes less than a minute using a calculator, or slightly longer using a pencil and paper. Simply divide 1,200 meters by the conversion factor of 1609.344 meters per mile to arrive at the equivalent value in miles.
