My chem prof told us 1 L = 1 dm3 = 1000 cm3 = 1000 mL ... if that is true is 1 cm3 = 1 mL, why or why not? If it is true would that mean an answer of .00952 mL is also equal to ...show more

yes, 1 mL does indeed equal 1 cm ^3. That does indeed mean that .00952 mL equals .00952 cm ^3.

You ask why one mL equals 1 cm ^3? You already went through the math.

1 L = 1000 cm ^3
1 L = 1000 mL
1000 mL = 1000 cm ^3
1 mL = 1 cm ^3

A cubic centimeter is simply making a box. The amount of liquid that can fill that box is commonly referred to as one millimeter.

    Think about it:

    1 dm = 0.1 m = 10 cm
    So cube it:
    1 dm^3 = 0.001 m^3 = 1000 cm^3

    But 1 L = 1000 ml by definition, or 1 ml = 0.001 L conversely.

    Thus 1 ml = 0.001 of 1 dm^3 = 0.001 * (1000 cm^3) = 1 cm^3

    Yes - you are exactly correct.

    ml and cm3 are the same thing.

    yes 1 mL = 1 cm^3
    and also the relation 1 L = 1 dm^3 came out from this.

    as you know volume = density/mass and 1mL of water weighs 1g and also 1cm^3 also weighs the same .this is how the relation came

    yeah , correct

    1 L = 1 dm3 = 1 x 1000 cm3

    then 1ml = 1 cm3

    So, 1000 cm3 = 1000ml

    Then, 0.00952 cm3 = 0.00952 ml
