**For example,**here's how to convert 5 cubic meters to gallons using the formula above.

Cubic meters and gallons are both units used to measure volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Cubic Meters

One cubic meter is equal to the volume of a cube with each edge measuring one meter.

The cubic meter, or cubic metre, is the SI derived unit for volume in the metric system. Cubic meters can be abbreviated as *m³*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *cu m*, *CBM*, *cbm*, or *MTQ*. For example, 1 cubic meter can be written as 1 m³, 1 cu m, 1 CBM, 1 cbm, or 1 MTQ.
