# Lenght to volume conversions

plutoisacomet
Hey guys, I have a question. I understand conversion units but how does one convert from Length to volume.

Example. convert 12.7m to cubic inches? If I am thinking correctly you convert m to m^3 by cubing 12.7 which becomes 2048.4m^3. Is that right? I then find to conversion factor for m to cm right? 1 m = 100cm do I then cube the 100cm like so: 100^3cm^3 Next, I now cube the conversion factor of 1in to cm right?
Is this taking me into the right direction?

Is that complete statement of the problem?

That would be right if you were asked to find the volume of a cube of side 12.7m, in terms of cubic inches.
