  2. length x width x depth = 1m x 1m x 10m = 10 cubic meters. Convert that to liters. The easy way to do it is to use Google; another way is to recognize that 1 m = 100 cm so the column of water is 100 cm x 100 cm x 1000 cm = 1 x 10^7 cc = 1 x 10^7 mL.

  3. how would it be worked if you have 1 square centimeter instead of the 1 square meter?
