mol/dm3 to cm3 conversion?

    • Thread Starter

    how do you convert mol/dm3 to cm3?

    x1000 to get to cm

    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.

    I just want to say..... THANK GOD THIS DINT COME UP!!!! YAY..... i dint understand it anyway!!
