# i need to know how to convert liters to decimeter and all of that by tomorrow.like for instance one of the questions on my homeowrk says write the letter of the equation that expresses an equal value.a)1L=1 dm b)1L=1cm cubed.so which on would it be? pleasse help me!!!!

1 liter= 1 cubic decimeter = 1dm^3

## 1 Liter = 10 deciliters = 100 centiliters = 1000 milliliters

so 1L = 10 dl = 100 cl = 1000 ml

Ask yourself, is 1L, which is a measure of volume, likely to be = 1 dm, a measure of length?

Hardly.

1 cm cubed, or cm^3, on the other hand is a measure of volume. So that should be our first clue.

1 Liters = 1000 cm cubed so neither of the possibilities you give are correct.

## To convert liters to cubic decimeters, you can use the fact that 1 liter is equal to 1 cubic decimeter. So, the conversion equation is:

1 liter = 1 cubic decimeter (1L = 1 dmĀ³)

Therefore, the correct equation expressing an equal value would be option a:

a) 1L = 1 dm

This equation states that 1 liter is equal to 1 cubic decimeter, which is true since they have the same volume.
