1 g/cm^3 = _________ kg/m^3

I tried converting g to kg and then cm to m, and then dividing. I get the answer 1x10^(-1). When I type in this problem on the internet, many sources say it is 1000. I am very confused as to how this answer was reached.

    1 g/cm^3*1kg/1000 g* 100*100*100 cm^3/m^3
    = 1000 kg/m^3

    you know this anyway because the density of fresh water is about 1 g/cc or 1000kg/m^3

    Thank you, but I still don't understand the steps that you took.

    Nevermind, thanks!
