When going from meters cubed to centimeters cubed, what do you change from the normal 10 ^ -2?


Thank you for your time.

Just think of it this way ...

[tex]1m=10^2cm[/tex]

or

[tex]10^{-2}m=1cm[/tex]

But what about when it is meters cubed to centimeters cubed? Isn't something different there?

cubed ...

[tex](1m)^3=(10^2cm)^3[/tex]

which becomes

[tex]1m^3=10^6cm^3[/tex]
