    The dm3 just means liters so to get from literes3 to cm3 multiply by 1000

    Wouldn't you divide by 1000, not multiply, as you are talking about converting dm^-^3 to cm^-^3? If you have 3000 moles per decimeter cubed then surely there would be 3 moles per centimeter cubed, not 3,000,000. I expect this is what was meant, but it could easily be misinterpreted.

    As a side note you should really know how it works in case you forget what to do. 10cm=1dm. 10^3=1000. 1^3=1. Therefore 1000cm^3=1dm^3.

    Divide by 1000, as harr said, seeing as the dm^3 and cm^3 are the divisors. But yes, to change a volume of one dm^3 into cm^3, you must multiply by 1000.
