    Any unit of length gives a corresponding unit of volume, namely the volume of a cube whose side has the given length. For example, a cubic centimetre (cm3) would be the volume of a cube whose sides are one centimetre (1 cm) in length.

    In the International System of Units (SI), the standard unit of volume is the cubic metre (m3). The metric system also includes the litre (L) as a unit of volume, where one litre is the volume of a 10-centimetre cube. Thus
    1 litre = (10 cm)3 = 1000 cubic centimetres = 0.001 cubic metres,
    so
    1 cubic metre = 1000 litres.
    Small amounts of liquid are often measured in millilitres, where
    1 millilitre = 0.001 litres = 1 cubic centimetre.
    Various other traditional units of volume are also in use, including the cubic inch, the cubic foot, the cubic mile, the teaspoon, the tablespoon, the fluid ounce, the fluid dram, the gill, the pint, the quart, the gallon, the minim, the barrel, the cord, the peck, the bushel, and the hogshead.


    ??????????

    i read it but didn't said COMMON UNIT

  • Science -

    The common unit is the standard unit.

    i'll check in my notes AGAIN 2 check to see if i can find the answer

    the you can check it for me

  • Science -

    ok

  • Science -

    here's my answer

    The common SI unit for volume is cubic metre (m3).

  • Science -

    is my answer is correct ???

  • Science -

    Yes.

    That's in the quote you posted above.

    "In the International System of Units (SI), the standard unit of volume is the cubic metre (m3)."

    Ok

    thank you :)

    Good Nite :)

    Frankly, I wonder exactly what the word common SI unit means? In my opinion, it's either an SI unit or it isn't. There are seven BASE units in the SI system and there is no volume listed. Then the SI system uses those seven base units to derive other units for the SI system. See
    http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/units.html
    for the 12 derived units, such as area (in meters squared, volume in meters cubed etc). Finally, there is a list of units OUTSIDE THE SI SYSTEM that are accepted to be used with the SI system, such as minute, hour, day, liter, metric ton, bel, electron volt, etc. It's safe to say that the standard unit of volume in the SI system is the cubic meter. I don't know if that is the same as the common unit or not.
