Interpretation: The volume of beaker in cubic centimeters, liters, cubic meters, and cubic decimeters has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

Conversion of milliliters to cubic centimeters:1ml = 1 cm3

Conversion of milliliters to liters:1ml = 0.001L

Conversion of milliliters to cubic meters:1ml = 106m3

Conversion of milliliters to cubic decimeters:1ml = 0.001dm3

Explanation

The conversion of millimeters to cubic centimeters, cubic meters and cubic decimeters litres is calculated as,

Conversion of milliliters to cubic centimeters:

Conversion of milliliters to cubic centimeters:Given: Volume = 250 mlKnown: 1ml = 1 cm3 Whereas,250 ml is,=250 ml×1 cm3 1ml=250 cm3

The obtained Volume of beaker in cubic centimeters is 250 cm3

Conversion of milliliters to liters:

Conversion of milliliters to liters:Given: Volume = 250 mlKnown: 1ml = 0.001L  Whereas,250 ml is,=250 ml×0.001L 1ml=0.250 L
