How to compute Cubic Meters (CBM)?

## Cubic Metres Calculation

CBM stands for "**Cubic Meter** or **Cubic Metre**". It is a most common metric unit for measuring volume. Here is a simple step by step tutorial to calculate the cubic meters.

**Formula : **

Cubic Meters = Length x Width x Height

Step **1:** Find the **CBM **(cubic metres) of a carton with a length of 20 cm, a width of 30 cm, and a height of 50 cm.

Let us consider the values given in the example,

Length = 20 cm

Width = 30 cm

Height = 50 cm

**Step 2:** If you have
measurement in Centimeter (cm), you need
to convert it into Meter. So, you need to divide the values by 100 to get the values in Meter.

Length = 20 cm = 20/100 = 0.2 m

Width = 30 cm = 30/100 = 0.3 m

Height = 50 cm = 50/100 = 0.5 m

**Step 3:** Substitute the values in the formula,

CBM = 0.2 x 0.3 x 0.5 = 0.03

The cubic meters (CBM) of carton is **0.03m**

Hence, the CBM of carton is **0.03 m**
